Today had to be spent doing other things so I got no gardening in.
I did, however, put time aside in the morning for a close inspection and careful watering of all my seedlings. They are all doing well and have really picked up this last week - whether its the extra light or heat or what!
The exception is one tray of Zinnias, where individual, sturdy 2" seedlings decide for no reason that they don't like life and die, stem first! But I have read that Zinnias can be picky - quick to germinate but tricky thereafter. Also two of my larger Ricinus plants are quite bent double because of soft stems, despite staking.
Later on I did manage to get a few trays sowed - all my remaining Arisaema, a tray of Monarda didyma (red) and two trays of Callistephus chinensis from Olga. I started with my favourite Aster colour - a deep sumptuous red : ) I just love red. Can't wait.
