This year I really want to fill my allotment with flowers. For several reasons, firstly I hope it will bring plenty of bees to pollinate, secondly as ground cover between plants so that there is less space for weeds to creep in, but mainly…because I want the allotment to look pretty!
Today I started with sowing some flower seeds. I treated myself to several packets for my birthday last week.
I’ve started with Marigolds, Tagettes and Nasturtiums. They are all set out on the kitchen windowsill under little propergators, they should have a good amount light and heat. I hope they grow. I’d love to fill my plot with colour.
