It is time to get a jumpstart on spring. Seed planting. What a lot of enjoyment one gets from growing plants for the garden . One of the best parts about growing seeds is the wider variety rather than having to settle for the one or two from a garden center. It is a rewarding hobby plus one ends up with a larger quantity of plants which is always good.
Started a tray of seeds under lights.... they have now germinated and I have moved them to natural light by the patio door....where they grow at a cooler temperature..
Portulaca, doubles. 6 heavily sown trays.
Saved the orangey red geraniums from last summer,overwintered in the basement . Now ,repotted , trimmed back and hopefully they will develop into quite large plants for the garden by May. I like geraniums with out the growth inhibitor that garden centers put on to control the size...
Seeds yet to start Tall African Marigolds, Zinnas and Sweet Peas... The sweet peas will be direct sown in the garden ... question is when? Thinking first of April.
All these little "babies" are whispering spring to me.
