Confined to the Greenhouse

Thursday was a dull day with plenty of light showers thrown in for good measure. The weather has turned all Aprilly on us after a few days of warm sunny conditions. The forecast for the next five days is for a very unsettled spell with sunshine and showers being the order of the day.
I did manage to get a little bit of catching up done in the greenhouse. All our sweet peas have now been potted on into larger modules to grow on before planting out.
Some of the first sweet peas to be transplanted were “White Frills” which had grown well enough to have their main shoot pinched out to encourage them to make much bushier plants. We are after maximum flower production rather than show bench perfection. These will soon be moved into the cold frame before they are planted out in the plot where they are to flower.


  1. White Frills sounds lovely. I've grown a mixture this year, so it'll be interesting to see what comes up. Rain and wind forecast here, so I don't think there will be any gardening over the weekend.

    1. It might be a bit of a challenge tracking all our named varieties on the plot. We've normally settled on mixtures too.
