Seed Swaps

Amaranthus: Velvet Curtains   

I have loads of these seeds but it could be a little late in the spring so I’m just starting a few this year to see what they are like
They popped up very quickly, and I split the new seedlings into four to grow on
16.06.14 I’m trying to empty the cold frame for the melons, so I’ve put them out in the lane as they have grown so fast
21.07.14 I can’t find them I think they must have been eaten :((
