You and your under gardener make a very good team. I am always so in awe when the seedlings appear from under the compost, they really are little miracles. I am looking forward to seeing the fruits of your joint labour. x


Hi, Lucy! I learned about your blog via Mrs. Magpie and am finding it so cheery and lovely! And yes, I suffer from Seed Mania too -- still have packets from 2002 crammed into a section of my fridge!


Ahhh, they are so seductive, seed packets aren't they? Alas, I am the same, even with the allotment AND a garden i still seem to open drawers and find random packets I had forgotten about..I have half packets, empty packets (the idea being that I will plant them and remember the variety if they were any good- I never do) and fit to bursting, desperate to get into some compost packets.
Great post. Glad they are growing for you-the nasturtiams are definitely a child pleaser!

You are talking my language here. I found myself looking at my enchanting seed packets this morning and musing on how lovely the flowers would be when they grew. There was a nasty moment when I remembered that I hadn't sowed the seeds. Doh!


Just read your 'little lady and me' post. It did make me laugh when she told you that mummys could be changed at Marks and Spencer! I worked for M&S for 14 years up until we moved last year and yes I think I've exchanged just about everything for customers, but never a mummy! I've found a few for little people but never exchanged one! lol!


I am a seed-a-holic too and I leave them too late too! And you're right, it always seems miraculous to see that tiny green shoot pushing up through the soil.

The packets tempt us with lovely pictures and we are powerless to resist! Mine generally make it to bening planted out in the garden and then are eaten by slugs.


I love the close ups of the seed packets, little helpers fingers prodding the soil and of the seedling popping through. I was too late with planting a lot of my seeds this year. Usually I am good at growing things but bad with the aftercare!
