Going through all my seeds I just pick out things that can be planted now, I never have a plan as such, I just plant what I have and hope enough grows so I don't have to buy anything. So far that has worked but really, I don't try and do anything too hard. Apart from the bleedin' carrots. I'm a pretty SlackA*** gardener and if something doesn't grow I just try again or plant something else.
I've also put other seeds into the bottom half of coke bottles with the lid as a top and more seeds in jiffy pots in a cardboard box with a sheet of glass over it. One bottle has Rosemary cuttings.
More seeds in this container. Hubby bought a salad roll while away at work one day and I rescued this from the bin. He will growl but hey, if it works it will be worth it.
These bottle have cuttings in them. After a month the Mulberry cuttings are starting to bud up but the Bougainvillea look like they are dead which is a shame as they have come from Doolgunna Station and were a really nice colour but I wanted them as a remembrance thing.
I am trying again with Carrots but not going to hold my breath. I hardly ever get these up and growing. I think I have managed to get 2 lots good enough to eat but have had 5 or 6 attempts. I have read that they need to be kept moist, so they are covered with newspaper. That will be removed
I have put peas in this end as well and it shouldn't be long before they are up. I put bottles over them as a bit of an experiment. Any other time that I plant peas I don't worry about covering them but I am hoping this will get them up quicker.
I'm not sure what the girls planted though we did write it on sticks and shoved it in with the seeds.
I should probably write it all down so I know but I'm not too fussed. I'll know soon enough when they start producing!
I think I've made a decent start but come September I will need to get a lot more stuff in.
