Day 91: Pottering Around the Garden & Attempting to Sow Seeds

I can see the garden every day now whilst I am working in the conservatory, so I popped out there at lunchtime today and trimmed a bit more of the hedge (that I started on the other day). I then decided to plant some seeds that I bought recently. I’ve been keeping back some plastic food trays for this very purpose (instead of recycling them). The overall plan is to add a bit of colour to the garden once the seeds germinate and bloom.

I started with the Whirlybird Mix which looked like pansies on the packet. I had no idea what to do, so had to follow the instructions. The last time I planted seeds was in my parents’ greenhouse when I was a child. The first thing I did was add compost to the tray, flatten it carefully and then sprinkle it with water. I scattered the seeds onto the compost.

Next on the list was to cover the seeds with a little bit of compost. I then put some cling film over the top of the tray and placed it in a warm place… I chose the conservatory.

I also had a pack of geranium seeds that I bought online. There were only seven seeds and they were so tiny. I used a separate tray for these.

Both trays are now in the conservatory and I will check on them daily.

I do have some other seed packets as well but I’ve saved that joy for another day.

Until tomorrow…

  1. Nice to look forward to. Think you decluttered by using up the seeds and you can plant them outdoors later!
