Sow the Gardening Season Begins..............

The helpful comments on my previous post jump started me into tackling the greenhouse.  Cleared of clutter and cleaned out it now awaits succession sowing.  You can see a list of what I have sown over at my gardening blog sybils plot

Today I went to visit a  local garden nursery.  It doesn't sell candles or pickles or sweets or even teas and coffees.  What it does do however, is specialise in all kinds of garden plants and it does it very well.

I was spoilt for choice as I walked up and down the aisles.  I decided to focus on herbs today and a few packets of Italian seeds landed in my basket too.  As well as the more familiar herbs such as Lemon Balm and Lemon Thyme I decided to try out some new herbs too (why not live dangerously?!!!) and I bought some Russian Sage and Broad Leaved Sorrel.  I also bought a tiny pot of Lawn Chamomile which doesn't flower.  The smell was stronger than that of the Roman Chamomile which has tiny white flowers. 

Happy at getting new plants for the garden, I now need to plan where to put them!

Sounds as if you have been busy, Simone. I too was looking at herbs today in the local garden centre - so many to choose from:)

Oh, I do envy you your greenhouse. Some day I hope to have one, too. Good job, Simone. Busy green thumbs make for a happy lady.

Sounds like you're getting your gardening mojo back and I look forward to seeing the results of your sowing and planting.
