I grew them last year, checked to make sure I didn't mix up the seeds, they seem to grow really well under glass

Not my garden but the view cheered me immensely on lottie yesterday! Everything has finally woken up! And I even mastered successional sowing - finally!

Sorry - forgot to rotate. I'm sure a soft collar will be fine to recover from the neck ache!

Tiger that is amazing! Everything looks so fresh, advanced & happy at yours! A tad jealous but also appreciate the dedication & hard work that makes this happen. You must be chuffed to bits seeing this each day!

This is only my second year with the greenhouse, I hadn't had one for well over a decade, really enjoying finding out what will and won't grow up here. The garden outside is challenging with light sandy soil, but the raised beds are definitely the answer to that.

Are they packet seeds Tiger? It looks as though they've crossed with climbing french beans. They look very healthy and it should be interesting to see what colour flowers it has and what they produce

My favourite flower this week is these dark blue iris - no idea what they are, we were given them as seedlings many years ago. We have a few different types around the pond, perhaps I should have tried a photo this morning rather than with the evening sun behind them.

What a difference a week makes, you don't notice when you go in every day do you?

These Butternut squash may need thinning out, never grown them before, how many do you get per plant?
