Sowed my annual seeds
Well it was dry this afternoon and the wind had dropped to a gentle lull. I grabbed my seed packets and headed out to my ‘hot’ border and set to work. I don’t usually plant annuals, I am a complete no fuss perennial bird, but as we are moving I have a few gaps to fill where I have pillaged my garden. I created drills in a diagonal cross fashion and planted dark red nasturtium and across that some poached egg plant.
I didn’t water them in as the soil was damp from the small amount of rain my part of the country has had, but just after I’d popped them in the heavens opened and watered them in for me! Lucky break I suppose the garden was as dry as a bone and I was considering watering over the weekend and the water butt isn’t as full as it should be. I think it will be fine now.
I will definitely have to do some thinning at some point as the foliage on the nasturtiums can take over a bit, but the hot coloured ground cover will look great with my grasses and perennials growing up through it.
I have a very dark dry place in the garden also and I have popped a few nasturtiums in there too, you can but try!
