This is the Wisteria I grew from a layered cutting in our garden in France. When we moved back to the UK 8 years ago it was about 15 inches tall with just a few leaves on. It's flowered early this year so sadly is beginning to go over now but it will flower again in September


And my tomatoes seedlings, I grow lots of different varieties from seed which I keep from fruits grown the previous year. Red, yellow, black cherry, black Russian and miniature reds
I always plant way too many seeds so have plants for ourselves and plenty to give away. We always have gluts so I freeze and preserve them and eat them in one form or another all year round

Itís the little things right now hat count, I know I will be very excited if any of my plants grow. Iím hoping to get some more veg seeds but there werenít any others in Lidl, just radish and carrots. Maybe I could try a different store next time.

Do post pics when you have lots of veg growing 😀

Ooh brilliant thread thanks. Iíve currently got a windowsill full of the little M & S pots plus Sunflower seedlings in varying degrees of success.

I was initially just spraying water on each day and most of seedlings sprouted; basil, beetroot, pansy, Viola, lettuce, cress, forget me not and finally red peppers. Some of the seedlings went leggy and died off but others arenít doing too bad. Iíve since started adding water to base of pots (does this encourage root growth?)

The sunflowers were in a bucket kit which when seedlings all sprouted you had to transplant all but four. The ones which have been transplanted have been doing much better than the ones in the bucket so Iím not sure if itís down to different compost used.

I donít know when to move all seedlings outside as itís been chilly at night here and I donít have a greenhouse or cold frame.

A mini orchard sounds lovely. It would be so nice to pick your own fruit. We tried growing strawberries once but sadly the birds had them before we did 😢 Iíve always loved feeding the birds, but I do wish they would stick to the feeders not my plants 😂

I love wisteria, itís so pretty and yours look beautiful. How lovely to sit on the bench underneath

The tomato seedings have grown well, I do hope you get a good crop of tomatoes

Northumberland, we tend to go to a site near Embleton, again a lovely walk to the beach.
Other favourites include the lakes, Shropshire and of course North Yorkshire.
Last summer we went up to the Highlands of Scotland to a small site on the banks of Loch Naver it was so tranquil, an experience towing a 6 berth caravan down single track roads though!
Want to do Wales next. I fancy somewhere near Barmouth.
Some beautiful areas there, Iíve always fancied Scotland but the distance puts my DH off especially towing the van.

Barmouth is lovely, we visited the Snowdonia area two years ago. I had been lots as a child but hadnít been for years but we loved it there, very unspoilt and wasnít too crowded even in August

Thank you DD yes it's very peaceful and the patio area is a bit of a suntrap. The joy of growing new plants from layered cuttings is that they flower as soon as they have rootstock and leaves strong enough to feed the flower buds. If you tried to grow the plant from seeds it can take 15 years before they flower eeeks! couldn't wait that long lol

I would really like to holiday in Tenby again but DH feels it is too far to tow from Sussex,
when we went to the Tenby area from Kent it took us 9 hours to get there on a Friday morning in August, my OH was all for turning back and losing the £800 odd I had spent on a lodge We have been to Padstow and that area too which was lovely but I personally thought Wales was nicer.

Very fond memories of going there. On the way there you have to drive through freshwater which is also a lovely long beach, and where they filmed the bit in Harry Potter with the house made of shells when he was looking for the different horcruxes.
Yes Iíve been to Angle. It is lovely there and Freshwater too. So many people rush to Tenby which is beautiful but busy, and there are so many other unknown parts of the county to see. Definitely going to be the first place we take the van when we can
