Veg seeds are pushing up fast, my tomato seeds, Moneymaker, have turned into long-leggy supermodels waiting patiently on the windowsill, thankfully the Chilli’s Anaheim are not through just yet as space is hard to find.
Outside the salad leaves, radish and lettuce (Valdor) have all germinated well – so no more frost thank you! In the greenhouse the peas I sowed for shoots are all through, they will be on their way to my salad bowl soon.
I struggle to have favourite plants, in fact I can’t think of any I don’t like – but there is something really special about the early entertainers such as these really bright and cheerful crocus. Talking of early show-stoppers – are Snowdrops the last flower of Winter or the first flower of Spring?
