Signs of growth

Not much going on at the allotment or garden at the moment but I do have a few things ticking over nicely in the greenhouse until it is time for them to go outside.

Sweet peas are coming on very well:

Sweet Peas in a basket

My first attempt at growing sweet peas in a deep root trainer. These were sown at the end of January and lived on our (unheated) spare room windowsill for a while before being moved out to the cold frame. 

Most of them will be going in a narrow raised bed against the fence, with a trellis and netting for support but I wanted some to put in this basket so they can weave themselves round and up. Really can’t wait to have lovely scented sweet peas, one of my favourite flowers.
