Monday's shopping trip saw me come home with a propagator. I had been toying with getting one for a while. Normally i would leave such a purchase as birthday present ideas, but we saw such a good offer Mike bought it for me then.
It is a heated windowsill propagator & has seven separate compartments, each with their own lid. Naturally I filled each compartment with compost straight away and set about finding some seeds which are suitable for sowing at this time of year.
I have sown two types of pansy, veronica, shasta daisy, echinacea, sweet williams & lupins. The lupins were only sown as I had a compartment left after sowing the first six set of seeds. The packet had been opened the previous year so I sprinkled the remaining contents onto the compost & hoped for the best.
Upon inspecting the propagator last night, I found the lupins were amongst the first to germinate. I have three little seedlings which I hope I am able to keep alive for next years planting scheme.
