Mr Fothergill's seeds from the garden centre:
Verve seeds from B&Q:

Anyway, I planned to sort out the garden this weekend so I got up bright and early on Saturday to make a start.
I deadheaded the camellia, weeded the borders, trimmed the edges of the lawn, planted the bedding plants, planted the sunflowers and sweet peas, emptied spring pots and heeled in the bulbs, planted up new pots and hanging baskets, top dressed existing permanent pots, sowed some annuals (Flanders poppies, cornflowers and love-in-a-mist), planted strawberry plants and finally watered everything and sprinkled slug pellets. By 5.00pm I was shattered.
Yesterday I found that I'm too old for all day gardening.
I couldn't move!
