I tackled my slug-ravaged seed packets,
in much the same way as I had the kitchen cupboards
although with slightly more reluctance
to observe the use-by dates,
was capable of germination after 2000 years,
I felt that a three-year-old seed had a fighting chance.

These old-fashioned wage packets were 
just the right size for re-packaging them.

Next up, the washing of the flower pots.


  1. How interesting! Germinating a seed thousands of years old. I marvel at the organization of your seed cache.

  2. Yes it's that time of the year again!

  3. I don't know what it is about gardening but I can't work up enthusiasm for it despite loving gardens. I'd never want to be without one, but I think I'd like a gardener to look after it.

    Lucille I like Pure Style (yes it is the one with the turquoise cover). I do think, though, as with all such books that it doesn't show real life -no tvs, or indeed anything electronic apart from stylish lighting. And of course everything is expensive. What's your gripe?

  4. Oh, they do look nice in their packets! Shame to sow 'em, really...
