Gardening in lockdown

The greenhouse still isn’t very tidy but it looks very different from when I last showed it. The baskets are all out, either hanging or in chimney pots. Tomato plants have grown like mad and are in 1L pots. The geraniums (last year’s cuttings), have been potted on into clay pots; I hope to have them outside soon. I’m also growing on a lot of other plants grown from seed or cuttings, all waiting to be big enough for planting out. I find propagating plants the most enjoyable part of gardening; I’d rather do it than anything else.
