More flowers delivered – weather crummy

Not much incentive to work outside during the last couple of days, today was very windy and with rain this afternoon. However, I did have to work in the greenhouse yesterday as a set of three clematis plants were delivered in the morning and they needed potting up – so that was one job. While I was there I potted on the ‘tumbling tom’ tomatoes that were all in one pot – three were ok and one just a tiny seedling which may not make it.

Also, a couple of days ago 24 baby ‘busy lizzie’ plants were delivered and that meant a session in the greenhouse putting them all into a matrix so they grow on a bit.

The wind today highlighted the fact that some of the broad bean plants are big enough now to need ‘stringing’ so that’s another job for the week.

Also, the peppers from the kitchen windowsill, 3 of which germinated, are now big enough to survive so I transferred them to the greenhouse. It’s predicted to be cold tonight so I’ve turned on the tube heater just to make sure they survive.
