Tonight was part self-education and part catching up. The pile of seed packets that I needed to sow with the passing of every week wasn’t getting any smaller and within that pile there was nothing familiar.
Last year I self-taught myself about sowing vegetables and became a little bit wiser. This year I am continuing my education and trying to learn about cut flowers for additional credit.
I started confidently, filled the various root trainers, pots and trays with Grochar Seed Compost opened the first packets and boom . . . what the hell. Everything was different. Gone is the familiarity of vegetable seeds, the simplicity of one seed one mini pot then pot on etc. Now I was faced with what looked like dust, kernels and alien spawn. I was not set up for this.
So day 1 of Cut Flowers 101 I realised that I need a few new approaches, I am going to learn a lot and I may have to add vermiculite to what feels like a ever growing science lab in the shed..
