Finally my peas are showing above the soil, to say that they had been pre-sprouted they've taken ages top come through.  must be the time of year.

Hopefully, the slow growth will make them extra tasty.

Ever hopeful
I’ve sowed (or is it sown?) several half packets of Barnhaven Primula seed.
Wrong time of year to do it really - hence only sowing half of each packet.
I had a tip off that Barnhaven might not be sending seeds without an expensive phyto sanitary certificate after Brexit.
Then as soon as they arrived I had to sow some.

My youngest sowed 10'000s of poppy seeds today - just a shame that it was in a space about a square foot big. Good job it was only seed to scatter on the off chance, did make me laugh. Bless her.  Rolleyes
1 seed, 2 seed, 3 seed, 4....
5 seed, 6 seed, 7 seed, more!

Surprise, surprise - got quite a few sprouting against all the odds. Yippee

Sowed some calendula seed as a tester in some new (to me) Wickes compost.
I usually use Verve from B&Q but having trouble getting it these days.
Hoping this new stuff will be just as good.

Well the Wickes is a pretty good substitute.
The seed in Verve came up quicker, but the Wickes caught up about three or four days later.
Might have to stock up on a  couple.
Am I allowed to say that I don’t like peat free compost? I know it’s not very green to say that.
Tried it a few years back and thought it was rubbish. Perhaps some of you more experienced growers can convince me otherwise? Would be willing to switch to peat free if I had a recommendation.
