Sometimes it seems to me as if it will be October before there are any flowers ready to cut and sell. Until recently, the pots planted up with tulips were stubbornly just showing soil and the seedlings seemed to be frozen at a very early stages of development, but today, although not very warm, most things seem to have nudged on nicely.
The tulip beaks are pushing towards the light and seem to have grown an inch since yesterday.While the ammi majus seedlings look cheerful both inside and outside of the cold frame.
All the seeds planted last weekend have germinated and the windowsills and cold frames are getting fuller and fuller.
Tomorrow off on a jaunt with my friend and farmers market partner for a Mother’s Day treat – learning how to make a hand tied bouquet with Georgie Newbery at CommonFarmFlowers so that when my flowers do finally bloom I will know what to do with them.
