Seeds 2024

Seeds sown 2024

in alphabetical order

Asphodelus albus / white asphodel

seeds sown 22-3-2024, 3 fibre pots in photo below, not many seeds in the packet so sowed 3 to a pot and I've had the seeds for a couple years so wanted to get them all sown

8-4-2024 no germination so I'm reusing the pots but I am being impatient as the seed packet says germination takes 1 to 3 months but that's ok if one day they sprout up next to the milk thistle or sea holly that I've sown there
