Ready, Steady, Sow

Tick list:
Propagating mat set up
Propagating covered unit set up with lid
Extension lead
Seed tray pressing down tools - boards with handles
Bubble wrap to insulate greenhouse for moving plants on
Smoke candle for greenhouse to make sure its clean and ready

Trays washed
 Old seeds sorted
New seeds ordered

Vermiculite found
New seed compost brought (Expensive but best quality I think, Clover brand)

To do
Find indoor fine watering can or spray
Plant labels!
Buy weekend Broadsheet Newspaper - seed sewing always a messy business and I like to cover the table!

Bring on Spring!

  1. Great post it's made me think of the longer warmer days and the excitement of finding the first seedlings stretching their delicate necks into the light. Can't wait.

    1. Neither can we! We have raised the table height towards the window level by putting some polystyrene blocks under the propagator otherwise those seeds will be stretching too far!

  2. Oh, how I wish we could start getting our seedlings ready. We have to wait at least another month.

    God bless.

    1. Only done antirrhinums (snap dragons) so far as they take nearly a month to come up and ages to make plants!
