Friend’s Hollyhock Seeds are Coming Through!

My Hollyhocks are coming through! Using clear plastic to keep heat in really makes a difference to germination.

I’ve called them Betty seeds because they came from my friend Betty’s garden. I am so excited but might not get flowers until next year.

Found this little fella wondering around too…anybody know what it is?

Wonderful Sunday working on the Allotment and Back Garden

Sometimes you just HAVE to spend the day in the sun working on your plot and wrapping it up with a lovely glass of fizz!

Yesterday was wonderfully sunny and I managed to get so many jobs done! The potatoes are in (see Seaweed and Potatoes), onions and leeks weeded, new onion sets sown, flower beds weeded and even managed to strim my little lawn! 🙂

The day ended well with a yummy roast round my friend’s house!

Here I am taking a shameless selfie of me and this beautiful flower. Has anybody got a clue as to the name of this beautiful plant?

I saved loads of the seeds last year and have now sowed a punnet of them! Fingers crossed they will germinate and I can have these beautiful flowers in my garden! 🙂
