I must admit, I felt like Mortisha when she was trimming the flowers from the rose stems as I removed the little hopeful faces of the pansies this morning. I’m sure this can’t be right but they were so straggly, the stems not the flowers. I’m not sure how long pansies are supposed to last, do I keep them in forever, will they produce any more flowers?

I planted all the little Zinnia seedlings and scattered some slug pellets to be on the safe side.

Nothing in my garden ever gets the chance to self-seed as I am obsessively weeding all the time. Can somebody please tell me how to recognise the seedlings? The only thing I do recognise is the aquilegia and that seems to get everywhere.

Once again the garden is tidier than the house!
