pricking out/thinning out/ potting on tray 1 + begonias

Friday, 15 Apr 11 Sunny 13°C / 56°F

I guess today’s activities are all three since some things got pinched, some things got new homes and some things got bigger homes. I planted out the tray for 8 dahlias, 4 rudbeckia and 8 marigolds, but with the good germination rates on these and the quality of the seedlings I’ve ended up with 13 dahlias, 4 rudbeckia & 14 marigolds. I don’t have space for all those so I’m going to try to trade some things at work and start looking for seed swaps. There was one last weekend at the hall, but I didn’t find out about it until it had closed up for the day. Maybe another will be arranged.

Begonias got a new home, and to be honest aren’t looking great, but we’ve had a couple of runs of cool temps so they’re desperate for warmth.
