Any clue why my gazania came up and were ontop of the vermiculite. Literally roots facing the stars. Gently had to turn up and poke back in. Wondered if it was because I used vermiculite. Only got 11 out of 20 seeds!

How long before I furtle in my seeds???

Oh no!!!! Can you take cuttings from them??? If so and easy I will grown replacements and then replace. If you know what I mean

Will have a look and see. Today I noticed some have gone all limp! Would have thought new growth would peek through soon!

My god man your like a walking garden bible. Hop over and sort out my back boarders! It was an extreme pleasure planting in the sandy soil at the front (I painstakingly dug out and replaced) the back is soooo heavy and sticky in comparison it's not as much of a pleasure to deal with. Just hope my stuff comes! My geyser are not showing yet but I have insurance cuttings. My stoksia also seems to have gone to perennial heaven!! (Unless I'm being too previous!)

Everything else has put out good roots just the verbena. V squat roots and went brown half way down leaves very fast and have just stated in that state.

Think I will try a cineraria when I work out what to take as cuttings!
