a handful of seed
a misty propagator lid on a sunny window ledge
and a little patience
First out of the traps this year is this pot marigold - not at all tender or in need of such special treatment, but I'll be growing them on in modules for my lovely friend Sian to use for her bee activity in May. The seed for these really does look like something you might have swept up off the bathroom floor after a pedicure session - but a bit of water and warmth is all they need to spring into life. Magic!
