For planting later in the year

This week, I got round to sowing my foxglove seeds in some compost.  I used ordinary compost this time, rather than seed compost (out of laziness – the ordinary compost bag was already open).  If it doesn’t work, I’ll know that was a bad idea.

In the past I have waited until October to plant the foxglove seedlings out (because the packet told me so) but the result was sort of pale and leggy so I think that I’ll do it in August instead this year.

Seed trays in my cold frame

Having had balmy days and warmish nights, we are having a slightly cold patch (I think it got down to 3C last night).  However, the cold frame is right by a building so I hope will still be warm enough.
