From the Vernal Equinox (20th March) I shall be running a grow along with Higgledy Garden… online… ‘realtime’… teaching/learning experience… workshop… intergalactic lecture sort of a thing.
I shall attempt to demonstrate… without the aid of a safety net … various ways and methods to get yourself a cutting garden… how to harvest your crops and ideas on how you can arrange them.
The course will be on going throughout spring and summer, and you are welcome to fire any questions you like using the comments section at the bottom of each post.
I shall use the very same seeds that I sell in the shop. In particular I shall be using the 20 varieties in the ‘Higgledy Garden Cut Flower Seed Collection‘.
So get ready for the Equinox… sharpen your trowels and dig your patch over. :)

How long should i wait for Bells of Ireland seeds to germinate before giving up? I put them in the freezer for a few days, but still no sign of life after 2 weeks.

sometimes it takes longer than that…I would say the earliest would be two weeks. Did you sow them on the surface…they need light.
Though ones i buried eventually came good.

Seeds arrived – masses of them! Can you tell us roughly how much space we’ll need? (I have 2 small plots 2m x 1m in my back garden plus about the same again on my allotment plus some big tubs. Will that be enough?

I’m in! I have your hardy annuals collection so may not have all the seeds. I’ll be growing mine on the allotment and might write about my efforts on my blog / twitter (using the #allotment hashtag). Fab!
