Lots of planting today. Seeds of Dianthus Barbatus ‘Scarlet Beauty’ and ‘Deschberg’ and Antirrhinums ‘Orange Wonder’ had been sown in November in the nursery, we pricked them out into small modules in Feb, potted them on in March and finally planted them out today in the area around Reception. It is great for the volunteers to see the final result of their work. The plants had to be soaked before planting so we took the opportunity, first time in eight years for me, to skive off and drink coffee and eat cake hidden (or so we thought) down the side of the restaurant, responsible women playing truant. I won’t say who found us but he did. Shame on us.
