French Marigold  Bo Jangle.

French Marigold Bo Jangle.

I sowed a tray of these last week and all 40 of them are up, looking forward to them flowering.

Am still busy with helping Greg so not much gardening done hopefully I will be finished painting and decorating next week as on the 20 th we have visitors coming for a week and will have to get cracking at the garden before that. All my tomato plants are doing well.

Looks like it might rain today after all the nice weather.

Happy gardening to all.

Morning Fran.

Great summer colour there. I see a couple of my cosmos seed popping up this morning. Every morning I cant wait to get a chance to lift the lids on the propagator to see what has come up, its the most satisfying feeling !

Clara Clara 11 March 2011 08:19:37

Myrtle is your propagator heated ? I put the trays into the hot press over night hope I am ok to do that ?

Myrtle Myrtle 11 March 2011 08:27:50

It seems to be working for you. Yes I got a heated one last year in Mr Middleton. It has 7 little trays, I get great pleasure from it :) but it is space for all the pots when it comes to potting up:(

Jacinta D Jacinta D 11 March 2011 08:40:33

Gosh, they're going to be gorgeous. Never saw that variety before.

Clara Clara 11 March 2011 09:03:27

Hope I did not make the same mistake as last year sowing to many but I can ofload some to my sisters, I forget Myrtle about that part potting on but will keep going. Jacinta on the packet some of them are even black stripes on them if you want I can send you some seeds ?

Jacinta D Jacinta D 11 March 2011 09:14:45

Yes, please, Clare. But don't send too many. Kitchen will be started in 2 weeks so everything is still up in a heap. Can't take out my 3-tiered growing racks just yet.

Clara Clara 11 March 2011 09:27:20

Ok Jacinta,    just shocked at the terrible Tsunami in Japan.

How did your Bo Jangle turn out?

I bought a packet last year and got only single yellows.

I bought another packet this year and have only 1, yes one, double flower.

I asked Suttons about this but they weren't very interested and offered to give me a refund.
