Seed Disks

I've never heard of these before, but I saw them in Poundstretcher the other day, £2.50 for a pack of 2, so I thought I would give them a go.


The idea is that you fill your hanging baskets almost to the top


and then place the disks in position. I decided that rather than have one blue basket and one yellow basket I would have two mixed baskets, so I cut the disks into quarters and placed them thus.


You then cover them, water, place in the greenhouse or somewhere warm, and wait. I guess if you come back in early June, I might be able to show you the end results hanging in my garden.

I am so desperate for it to warm up a bit, as these all need sowing, but its just too cold right now.


It is dry though, so I may venture outside this afternoon and do a bit more preparation on my second veg raised bed.

Dear Joy
It will be really interesting to see how they do. I look forward to seeing their progress in June. I have loads of seeds waiting to be sown too, and plants to move and various things to sort out but it is just too cold!
Best wishes
Ellie

I don't have a garden, so I live my gardening gene through other gardens, can't wait to see what happens with these.
