Dogsthorpe just up the road, be there in 10mins.
Severe cabin fever here Woo.
All the over-wintered seeds are germinating and it's time to prick them out and set the spring ones. It's a cold greenhouse and right now it's very cold.
Hi woo, all those seeds that germinate after a chilling, Angelica gigas, a couple of daphnes, euonymus, rosa rugosa. These are up. About 20 of something or other, still waiting for some.
Ranunculaceae, apiaceae, and primroses etc all do well like that and lots of shrubs.
And in the middle of winter I sowed all the aquilegias, now germinating, some codonopsis, various strange things I found in the Chiltern and Plant world seeds catalogues.
Lots of pricking out to do soon Woo.
Knowledge will come with experience, I've still got a long way to go.
There's a lot of experience on this site. I took lessons in taking cuttings when I first came. Never had a lot of luck there. I shall soon know if the lessons worked. All the cuttings are lined up out there, in and out of the cold greenhouse according to the weather.
Enthusiasm will get you a long way
Not now Bunny, I let them do it themselves. Once I realised they were so willing I just let them get on with it.
