This morning was lovely and sunny, so I went out to the garage and decided to plant some seeds.
I've been collecting loo roll tubes for a while now, with the intention of using them for this purpose. I can't take all the credit as I got the idea from Louise Love, I think she planted her seeds in the Autumn. Last year I planted them around March and they didn't get going earlier enough and only started flowering around Aug/Sept, so this year I've decided to start them off abit earlier. Some experts say you should start them in the Autumn, but we'll see what happens, abit of trial and error.
So this is what i've done.
I taped them together with cellotape into a circle.
Placed some newspaper on a plastic tray and filled them with compost and then popped one seed into each roll.
I've placed the tray on the window sill of our conservatory, which we don't heat where they should get plenty of light.
I'll keep you posted on progress.
