Poppies,Foxgloves and Roma VF tomatoes

Once the trays were removed I decided to sow some more seeds I had a packet of 5 types of peaony type poppies so decided to try some in a cell tray and still have seeds left to sow direct although if this works might sow some more and hope they are in bloom in mid June. Also on the flower front sowed some white foxglove seeds in pots and on the vegetable side sowed Roma VF tomato seeds that came with the Grow Your Own magazine. I sowed 2 seeds in 6 pots so this will be a waiting game and nervous expectation of a different kind than Jacinta as it's my first tomato seeds. Mind you with all the advice on tomatoes in Chillipeppers journals I know there is help and advice on hand.

How do you set your thermostats? I dont have that control on mine so will just have the one heat.

I used to have a little propagator just like that. They are grand as there is a little air vent you can open or close. It must be hidden under all the junk in the garage. I think I feel a major tidy up coming on.

It doesn't have a thermostat but does have vents in the lid, mind you I have learnt a lesson on propogation from Frans journal on growing seeds. I reckoned to get started it would be sufficent.

It looks quite a big propogatior.  I am interested in the Roma seeds and to see how you get on.
