In an exciting new departure, Family Lore is joining up with Practical Gardening Weekly, and will now include weekly posts giving handy tips to improve your gardening prowess. To kick off, today we'll explain how to sow your marigold seeds.
First, go down to B & Q and buy your seeds. Then get a box and fill it with dirt. Scrape a few lines in the dirt with your finger (in the trade we call these lines 'drills'). Sprinkle the seeds in the drills and cover them up with the dirt. Pour a load of water on the top, and you're done. Sit back and have a sandwich (remember to wash your hands first).
