Hor­ti­cul­tural aide mem­oire Sow spring bed­ding

Country Life Every Week - - In The Garden - SCD

Wallflow­ers, for­get-me-nots, sweet wil­liams, fox­gloves and a range of peren­ni­als can be sown this month. It’s a small in­vest­ment for a large re­ward. Find a bit of spare ground in the kitchen gar­den or nurs­ery and cul­ti­vate it as a seedbed. Drib­ble wa­ter from a can along the base of the drill for bet­ter ger­mi­na­tion. Sow the seed as in­di­vid­u­als: it takes a lit­tle longer, but your pa­tience will be re­warded. When the seedlings are through, pull them up bod­ily, grade them for size and trans­plant the best to an­other plot, per­haps be­tween fruit bushes. Lit­tle room is needed.
