I finally managed to find Primrose seed, so I've sown it in a plastic takeaway container, as it needs light and humidity to germinate.

One sprouted, it has to be lightly covered in compost and grown until it can be planted outside in the autumn.

Gawd knows how it still exists as a plant with all that faff.

I've nuked compost and cleaned pots to repot the tomatoes and chillies later today.


Transplanted the last of the chillies and tomatoes into 2" pots. Now under the lights in the living room.

I also sowed pansies, Livingston daises and French marigolds into takeaway containers as they are ideal for the job..


Mowed the lawn and fed the back garden.

The 4 cherry trees are loaded with swelling fruits. I'd better get a fruit cage built.


I sowed cucumbers, gherkins, 2 types of beans and a few more tomatoes.


All the tomatoes repotted and moved to the greenhouse. That gives more room for the chillies in the living room. 2 mild ones for my Turkish neighbour are already in flower!


I transplanted the Pansy seedlings and sowed loads of French Marigolds in hanging pots on the wall.

3 Tomato plants just snuffed it, and I have no idea why. ???


Sowed Greek (small leaf) Basil and potted-on an Oregano cutting.
