Seedlings, seedlings everywhere...

Meadow Cranesbill seedlings
It's that time of the year when the greenhouse and coldframe are overflowing with seedlings waiting to be pricked out, among them Meadow Cranesbill (Geranium pratense) and Devil's-bit Scabious (Succisa pratensis) from seed harvested and sown at the end of last summer.

If I keep on top of the pricking out and potting on, there should be a large number of strong, well-established young plants to add to the meadows and hedgerow margins later this year. If I don't, there will be a mass of tiny, spindly, root-bound waifs and one very guilty Freerange Gardener. Place your bets, ladies and gentlemen...
