The weather may prevent us from making a start to the new gardening season and we may have lots of preparation still to do on the plot. The greenhouse may still need sorting out but at least we now have all our seeds ready and waiting for sowing.
First to arrive were the Kings seeds.
These arrived in a very large box but as I order for other people on our site the contents were not all for us. Above is what was left when we took out the items that we hadn't ordered. We are sharing with a friend so they are not all ours but I know that there seems rather a lot. Included in the box are some onions and shallot sets which we will start off in pots in the greenhouse. This seems to work for us.
The next parcels to arrive were our seed potatoes from JBA.
Here are just some of the contents. In total we received four large boxes but again these are to be shared with a friend. For now these will be stored in the garage until we feel that they will be happy chitting in the greenhouse.
Next a smaller package arrived from Plants of Distinction.
This package contained the more unusual seeds that we fancied trying along with a free packet of radish seeds - Cherry Belle.
Then finally a package arrived from Thompson and Morgan.
These are mainly annual flower seeds with the odd packet of herbs.
So is it a case of our eyes over-ruling our brains. Will we manage to plant everything? - You'll just have to wait and see.
