It seems like only yesterday that I planted my first round of seeds in the greenhouse and now just a few weeks later seedlings are being potted up ready for selling to my clients. I absolutely love this part of the young plant’s life, just before they are strong enough and mature enough to be put out into the gardens. Experience teaches me to wait until after all chance of frost has passed, but my heart says, put them out now! I shall wait, but it’s a challenge. Everyone is excited about the prospect of having new plants in their gardens especially if they are a species that haven’t formerly been planted. Having the opportunity to watch plants grow is a journey of waiting and discovery as the young plants develop into their beautiful selves.
My current seedling list includes:
Angelic gigas (Korean Angelica)
Coriandrum sativum (Coriander) ‘Cilantro’
Echinacea purpurea (Cone flower)
Ipomoea rubro-coerulea (Morning Glory) ‘Heavenly Blue’
Lathyrus odoratus (Sweet Pea) ‘Spencer Special Mix’
Lathyrus odoratus (Sweet Pea) ‘Winston Churchill’
Lunaria annua (Honesty)
Lycopersicon esculentum (Tomato) ‘Gardeners Delight’
Physalis alkekengi (Chinese Lanterns)
Sweet Pea ‘Winston Churchill
Tropaeolum (Nasturtium) ‘Tall mixed’
More tales and photographs from the greenhouse coming to a screen near you soon… enjoy and I will be back in the next few days reporting on more young plants. Always happy to hear of your triumphs and discoveries so please do leave a reply and when I’m out of the greenhouse I will write back.
