Seed sowing season

It’s that time of year. As I start putting different aspects of the garden ‘to bed’ the cycle starts again with some seed sowing.

Seeds waiting to be covered with compost

These seed trays were bought second hand quite a while ago. I think they were/are used in machines that automatically sow seeds. Amazingly robust – so much so that you can stand on them. Over 200 hollyhocks just in this one – and 3 already done.

The idea is they should grow on and get potted up, live in the polytunnel over winter and hopefully I will get flowers in the first 12 months. Well…. Thats the idea anyway.
