The herbs sown on 17th march are slow, these are the best of them so far, basil,marjoram and the dill which needs repotting asap as it is getting a little spindly
The slowest are I think the commonest herbs which I thought would be the easiest to grow, Thyme (2), parsley (2) and a few of the sage have come through.
Antirrhinums (snapdragons)are very slow and small as yet
French marigolds making good progress and putting on new leaves.
Only 2 of the Berner Rose tomatoes have survived but have got much bigger since being moved to ICU (bedroom windowsill) the third one just died off. All of the other tomatoes in the mini greenhouse are doing well and have got used to the cold nights outdoors.
Weather here is so changeable from sunshine to torrential rain and today we may even have thunder storms in some areas.I have lots more seeds to go in so am waiting for the herbs to vacate the windowsill.
