Hello and welcome to Glamorous Gardener. Here you will learn tips and tricks to create the glamorous garden of your dreams. I will take you on a step by step journey as I do the best with what I've got and turn downtrodden dumps in to delightful designs. Along the way, I will be dropping as many names as I will seeds.
You should probably be planting seeds for most salad and herby stuff but if you want something ridiculously easy to grow from seed get some rocket seeds. I planted mine just a few days ago and they're looking good...
Last year I didn't pick it in time and it went to flower, it's grown back this year and has become a bit of a weed
so I'd suggest growing in a pot and picking when it is young and ready to eat
I have an amazing tip. I'd bought some giant Sunflower seeds on eBay and they cost around £5 for 10 (they are a special giant variety). Normal Sunflower seeds in garden centres are usually a few quid for about 10.
I was in a pet shop considering buying a Goldfish when I came across this giant bag of Sunflower seeds - it's Parrott food apparently.
I figured that it's highly unlikely they'll actually grow as they cost me 95p for the giant bag. But I thought I'd give it a go anyway and look...!!!
