    Tardy with my Saliva patens sowing compared to you though seedlings are catching up fast – faster than the snail anyway

      Ha! I put my Salvia Patens in the ground yesterday…but they’re still titchy. I’m not holding my breath.

    Just sowed some zinnias today! Glad to hear they won’t take long, I’m fed up of waiting for my verbena bonariensis to come up. I want to have dahlias too-am I too late to plant tubers?

      If you plant your tubers in the next ten minutes you’ll be fine…tee hee…seriously get them in as soon as you can and you should be fine…best in by early April…often lots of deals around at this time.

    Seedlings looking good! If it makes you feel better, I haven’t sown my zinnias yet. I am a bit rubbish with them – very few normally make it to full flower. x
