Category: Coreopsis

New for 2018…

I sowed a whole batch of seeds today. Some from my garden last year, some from packets and some from friends gardens.


Aquilegia, basil, coreopsis, cosmos (3 colours), musk mallow, nigella, Passion flower, poppies (red & pink) and rudbeckia. 112 plugs/pots in total.

A propagator full of seeds…



All the seeds need between 20 – 25 degrees to germinate, so they are staying in the kitchen on the windowsill. Now, fingers crossed and just wait patiently(ish)!

First new plants!

The purpose of our new flowerbed is to give me a new hobby by collecting seeds and taking cuttings to fill the bed and make it look pretty! But we have given ourselves a start by buying 4 plants today and a bag of horse manure too. These are pretty crappy photos but it is just for info:


Aztec Marigold1

We bought an Anthemis, Aster, Coreopsis and Aztec Marigold! I know nothing about any of these plants, we just took a chance!
