Sowing!

Since the 3rd of March I have been busy with experiencing and sowing seeds.

Here is the list of seeds I sowed on the 3rd of March.

(apart from the chocolate tomato seeds.  I sowed them on the 23rd of March)

 
Broccoli
Curly Kale
Petruna's
Marigold (Grand-da)
Cauliflower
Pak choi
Cabbage
Quince
Sweet peas (Royal Family Mix)
Nastrutras
Buzy Lizzie (mix)


I keep being asked how do I get some of my seeds to germinate.  Well this is how I mainly get them started.  By putting a make-up remover pad on a saucer.  Then I pour some water on and sprinkle the seeds on, then pop a clear cup on top.  Simple really!



 
After two hours I noticed the Broccoli started to spout or should I say germinate.  Two weeks later I potted the Broccoli, Curly Kale, Cauliflower, Cabbage, Broccoli, Petruna's, Marigold (Grand-da), Pakchoi, Nastrutras, Buzy Lizzie (mix) and sweet peas up.  Then popped them all in my lil greenhouse.  A week later I noticed my Curly kale, Cauliflower, Cabbage and the rest of the above plants was doing great. 

But a snail had eat the Broccoli, I had found he/she on the pot.  Then the frost came and killed off most of the plants I had grew from seed. Apart from Curly Kale, Cauliflower, Cabbage and Tomato's.

Read how I saved my garden from the frost, in my plant marathon


But I have not yet seen any think of the Quince seeds yet!
I will keep you posted if and when they pop up!
