Where am I going to put them all?

These are the seedlings I have yet to find a home for. Trying to match plant to place is like a horticultural jigsaw with lots of special rules. By the way, I am not looking for new homes for either of the animals!

Yesterday Pippa and I went for a lovely breezy walk in the Ashdown Forest; you can see pictures of it on one of my other blogs, here.

And since I don't spend my entire life in gardening clothes, this is me last night, helping B with a photographic lighting experiment. Glamorous, isn't it? From 10:30 to midnight in a multi-storey car park in Crawley.


  1. Emily, I have the same issue - where to put all the tomatoes?! I don't have as many as you, but still, I need to find a space. Do you want to put some in big nursery pots? I put several tomato plants in the pots every year. Cherry tomatoes seem to do better that other types. Good luck!

  2. Yes it is always such a conundrum where to plant everything. I like Tatyana's suggestion and have done this in the past but sadly my garden is so full don't even have space for all the pots I have.Hence many are placed on the drive as we don't use the car that frequently.

  3. Hi EB - nice of you to visit me. What a lot of seedlings you have ammassed - hope you find room for them all. I have just taken an old friend to our best garden centre and was very tempted by yet another aquelegia - I see from your header that you love them too. This one was a clear blue with a cream centre and long spurs. I resisted the temptation as I find that however hard I try to prevent it they always hybridise within a couple of years and I lose the original. Love that red setter - makes my Border Terrier look so small. Shall put you on my blog list now.

  4. I am having the same problem with the 5 trillion seeds I planted....what now!!! I have no idea where to stick them. I don't know what I was thinking planting that many seeds. I will have to give most of them away. I love the purple coat, very nice!

  5. Hi Emily, As Vicki is away at the Chelsea flower show I thought I might have been able to sneak the dog in while she wasn't looking but as its not for sale I guess I'd better move on to the picture, the lighting and colours of which I like very much also there is a sense of mystery about the picture too.
