It's that time of year again when for us in the garden is the busiest time of the year. It is also the most exciting part of the year, we see all the seeds appearing and in the garden, the plants are starting to show themselves again. I have to say growing seeds is so rewarding, although sometimes back breaking in leaning over a tray, pricking out all the little seedlings, placing them into pots. That said the rewards of labour show in a few months, those small seedlings then become beautiful flowers which are around the garden. It is much easier if you have a greenhouse to house the tender seeds, but you can do it with a tray on the window sill in the house.
Today after 6 hours of bending I have over 100 Zinnias, this would cost at least £100 at your local garden centre. Growing them myself has cost a fraction of that, I have so many that I will be able to share with neighbours, still having enough for my own needs.
It is so worth the effort and also so rewarding, so I say give it a go and if you need advice then please just ask
My name is Jonathan and I enjoy working in my garden in my spare time. I am no professional, just an amateur. My second love is photography, shooting the flowers in my garden and of course sharing them with people who share my passions.
