It stills blows my mind that a tiny seed no bigger than a grain of rice can grow and flourish into a tall and colourful plant. With good compost, light, warmth and water, the little things can grow fast and big!

Earlier this year I cut back more of our back lawn (much to the delight of Mr Brown) to enlarge our flower bed.  With garden centres closed and plant stock being low even on-line, I took the opportunity to grow some plants from seed.

So from humble beginnings the new bed has flourished and is full of colour, with even more to appear in the coming weeks.
