Get Set – Get Sowing by Catherine Norman

Now is one of my favourite times of year as spring starts and the days are getting longer  it is time to start seed sowing and all the promise that holds for the coming year.

I have been busy on the nursery getting the seeds sown ready for the planting season. It started with sowing sweet peas, one seed into a 7cm pot on 15th February but there is still plenty of time to get them going. Ours will soon need potting up into 1 litre pots and tying into canes. Many people set their sweet peas off in the autumn but ours are ready and waiting to get out in the garden by the end of May and always put on a good display in the garden.
