Thanks hunni, they sound fascinating and I would love to know how they taste. Toms can be a bit bitter sometimes so maybe these will be really nice. I am sure you won't kill them, sweetie. Very Happy

We mowed the meadow (front lawn) No
It was about 18" tall Laughing
We went through and picked as many dandelion leaves as we could and they're all laid out in the kitchen drying, also bought a bag of wildflower seeds from B&Q, big enough bag to cover a fair bit of the lawn. Not sue the best way to go about growing them tho... Alan Titchmarsh article seemed to suggest they wont grow if I just chuck them on the lawn (too much competition from existing plants)... tho having just mowed it despite the length of the grass its not dense grass and theres a lot of moss. Theres 6m2 worth of seeds... thats a lot of seedling trays if I need to start them elsewhere silent

I would imagine the moss would be the issue.
Try giving the mossy parts a wee hoe them plant the seeds.
Birds will have a field day with the seeds to so maybe put up something to deter them

It sounds as if you have a busy time ahead hunni, but I am glad you managed to cut the grass. Did you have help by any chance LOL? We do not have a garden here, or none to speak of. We have a small front lawn but I wouldn't pick anything from there because of car fumes. Very Happy

My carrots are a bit of a disappointment compared to last year. I had loads all over the bucket but this year there are a few in clumps but most of the bucket is bare Hmmm

I am trying to be patient but Iím sorely tempted to buy a different type and plant them in bare bits!

My flat leaf parsley is beginning to grow Very Happy But there are also weeds popping up in the pots Rolling Eyes

So to sum up, itís not going well this year Laughing

Thats not good hopefully once the parsley gets going it will choke the weeds.
Shame about the carrots Sad i have nante carrots if you want to try them not sure if it to late to plant and I have no idea of the differencein carrots Embarassed

My strawberry plant seems to have came to life. Ive had it for three years and never seen it so perky.
My dandilion seeds havent sprouted yet might have to try again.

Today I bought different carrot seeds (Iím hoping theyíre the same ones as last year) and planted them in the bare bits of the carrot tubs!

I also bought coriander. When I buy coriander/parsley plants in supermarkets, I keep the tubs. So I put the coriander in them. I got a bit carried away! When I turned around and saw how many were behind me I was like oops!! Laughing

My OH is going to think Iíve gone mental when he gets home from offshore haha!

I was gutted today to find my chive plant absolutely full of little green bugs Crying or Very sad Aphids or something apparently. Gutted! Iíve just got back into the swing of using it!

Aphids are a pain in the backside, I remember someone I knew growing roses and they were forever getting infested. Good luck with the carrots, I hope you grow some beauties love. Very Happy

Went and bought some seedling trays and planted some of the wildflower seeds I bought, so will see how they go.

The dandelions are starting to grow back on our sad looking lawn already!

I am sorry about your dandies darling, indeed t is a mystery that they are growing wild and yet you cannot grow your own. Yes hunny, of course, the carrots still count.

Haven't got my pots yet. Pig of a husband is staying with friends and has made an excuse to stay much longer than he should. He is supposed to be my carer, it is a joke. I will have to wait for my pots. Hissy
