These beautiful Cerinthe major ‘Purpurascens’ seedlings are two weeks old now and I have just potted them up. Their leaves are a beautiful matt bluish green and a lovely almond shape, I can’t wait to see them grow and put their exquisite flowers on.

I have marked some of them for selling at the local car boot sale, I’ve not done this before so I am a little bit nervous about setting out my stall to sell my plants, but very excited too.. Along with the Cerinthe, I shall be ready to sell Coriander ‘Cilantro’, Centaurea cyanus ‘Black Ball’ (Cornflower), Erisymum ‘Jenny Brook’, Lathyrus odoratus ‘Spencer Series Tall Mixed’ (Sweet Peas), Lathyrus odoratus ‘Winston Churchill’ (Sweet Peas), Lunaria annua (Honesty), Moluccella laevis (Bells of Ireland) and Tropaeolum ‘Tall Mixed’ (Nasturtiums).

I still have so much potting up to do and preparation for the car boot sale on Sunday, so wish me luck and I look forward to writing about my experiences along with keeping a photo diary of the day.
