It’s Growing!

A few weeks ago I posted that I had planted some seeds. I don’t have very green fingers, and it’s a miracle if anything with leafs survives around here in this here. I have cats that like to nibble on plants and I almost always forget to give them water. So how did it end up with those seeds?

Alive and Growing

Almost all of the seeds are growing! Almost…

I had planted pansy’s, mint, chives, parsley, sweat peas and dahlias. The Mint isn’t doing anything, or it takes very long to pop up from under the soil. The Dahlias aren’t even trying. The Pansy’s, basil, parsley and sweat peas are doing great! Which is a miracle — really. I’ve placed the sweat peas outside, and covered them up the first week to keep it damp inside.

The sweat peas are doing good.

The rest in the green house started growing after a week. The pansy’s popped out first (and through out the rest of the green house too. Not just where I planted them). Followed by parsley and chives.

And last weekend I bought flowers to give the balcony some colour. I got Pelargonium Grandiflorum (Franse geraniums) and African Violets (kaaps viooltjes). Because of the bad weather I had to wait a couple of days before I could put them in another flowerpot instead of the ugly plastic ones they come with. I hope they survive! (note: the violas are actually purple, and not blue. The camera has trouble with that color)

  1. Beautiful! I’m so proud of you 🙂 Give the mint more time, and be careful when you pick the seedlings out to plant in bigger pots. Don’t hold or pull by the stem, most important 🙂
