In between stage


I dont know about you but im at a ‘in between’ stage, everything is looking great and racing on, there’s not much to do, ive just gotta let em get on with it, its still too cold at nights to get them planted outside but its far too warm during the day to keep them in the Greenhouse! so out they all come in the morning and back they all go in the evening. The weather forcast is rain for the next 10 days! great just what I dont need, hopefully after that the weather will settle but you can never tell in Scotland!

I've had two marathon planting sessions over the last 2/3 weeks. Had to! The greenhouse was bulging at the seams, as was the mini one I use as a cold frame! So far, so good, everything is growing well in the garden. Just hope we don't have a late frost, although here in the Midlands, it's unlikely,(I hope)!

I am afraid to plant out anything tender yet. my greenhouse is also bulging. But here in Yorkshire it's still too early there is still a risk of frost,spring bank weekend will be the busy time for me. My son asked if he could have the hanging baskets I had made for him when I said not yet he didn't get it at all, he's not a gardener but he does enjoy seeing lovely plants so there is hope for him yet. I also give him a basket of tumbling tom tomato he picks them every day for his lunch at work.

Thank you for the comments , I gave in and got several things planted out ,Godetia , Stock , Marigolds , Tagettes and Nicotiana, just couldnt keep them in the Greenhouse any longer they were getting pot bound and no way did I have room to put them into bigger pots , all seem to be surviving okay ,also put out the Black Cherry Tomato plants .
