Always loved to potter in the garden but only really in the last couple of years, have I embraced it by redesigning our space and growing from seed

@susanhumphrey333 , collected on a white piece of paper(as the leaf dries they drop off) then scattered on top of soil (not compost) in a seed tray, sprayed with water, covered with polythene and put on bottom shady shelf of little greenhouse. So, we will see if I succeed or not 🤔🤔🤔

You can also plant leaves in soil like begonias as well, cut in sections stand on edges @hayleyaj

@bookworm68 @susanhumphrey333 @rachelbrooks wish me luck! I've also done the leaf cutting version this evening! Spare bedroom is already getting crowded! Do hope I can grow these, the bottom garden project needs them! 🤔😀

Good luck Hayley. My ferns are quite big and clumpy so I've only ever divided them but might try this too 😀

@susanhumphrey333 so are many of mine Sue. But I thought I'd test myself and see if I can do this kind of thing! I could and I will make divisions, but a lot more satisfaction in this if I'm successful 🤔🤔😜😂😀
