              Managed to wash most of the pots, but it was a bit hard going in the strong wind, had to chase after a few!!
              Trimmed back all of last years Bacopa in various pots and borders that has suddenly sprang back to life.
              That was all I could do as the strong wind gives me a headache.:smile:

                    I had a lucky break today. The rain stopped mid morning and the wind eased a little. I had the chance to finish painting and wiring my fence. I now have both my trachelospermum jasminoides planted. I will eventually need more but for now I am happy with what I've got.

                          @CanadianLori that looks good and I hope you get great results. As you have them in a thin bag you will need to keep a close eye on them as once they have germinated they will need room to grow. Do you, then, put them in a propagator?

                            Have to say that this year I have sown a lot of my seeds on kitchen roll in baggies....so easy. The bonus is that you only plant up viable seeds.:dbgrtmb:

                              I managed to sow pelargoniums, busy lizzie and cucumber during a short lull in terrible wind. But as I need the shed door open - to be able to see - I haven't been able to do any more for fear of having to chase shed door across garden. So very behind on seeds.

                                They are on the floor in front of a central heat register which has a a deflector to run the air over them. Keeps them at approximately 76f. :)
