Heucheras at last!
At last the Heurchera seeds that I sowed in the greenhouse on the 5th January have started to germinate. I would include a photo but they are so small you wouldnt be able to see them!
Spring is trying to arrive – I have daffodils and primulas flowering in the garden although some of the daffs are only just appearing above ground.
I sorted through my seeds and scared myself with how many I have to sow in February and March so started to take a gamble and start sowing this weekend. Started the ball rolling with some Pak Choi. I have never tried growing these before but I love eating them and they are very expensive so I thought I would have a go. I also sowed some Pelagonium seeds – there were only 8 seeds in the packet so I hedged my bets and only sowed 4. They need a high temperature to germinate and this doesnt suit everything else in the greenhouse at the mo, so I am experimenting with putting the pot in the iaring cupboard!
As the weather is so grim this weekend I have retreated indoors to make Marmalade. My local box scheme, Flights Organics, have sourced some Seville Oranges so I am having a go. I love marmalade and I estimate that each jar will have cost me 50p plus time but this is a huge saving on what you pay in the shops so fingers crossed it sets.
