Care of Autumn sown seeds

Posted: 12/10/2017 at 20:26

Hi


I planted some poppy seeds in the middle of September( kept them in a cold frame) they have grown so well they are getting leggy. What do I do with them now ?  will they slow down a bit as the weather gets colder, they look ready for planting out.


Many thanks for reading.

I have nasty thick clay soil, so good to know Elsanta will be good in pots, thank you?

Many thanks, Willbara, for taking the time to reply.


I had 2 plants in pots and about 8 in the ground, all disappointing,


So will be buying some new plants.

Many thanks for your reply. I'll perhaps plant up some of the runners and get a couple of new plants too.

I was given some strawberry plants last year (no idea what variety) although they had a few flowers I had no fruit.


This year there were lots of flowers but they all seemed to rot before developing into fruit. (maybe the weather?)


So should I-


Try these plants again


or


dig them up and plant their runners.


or


shall I dig them up and start again with a known variety,


I had dug in manure and put straw under the plants when they flowered.


Thanks

To cover a bare wall or not?

Hi I have a large bare wall at the side of our house, I would love to grow a climber up it (SE facing) BUT my husband says NO, he argues he won't be able to paint the render to match the front and back of the property, and it would look very silly trying to paint round a plant whilst it grows to completely cover the wall. So any solutions please. any climbers that will survive in a pot with a removable trellis to support it, or I am stuck with a plain (but beautifully painted wall!)


Thankyou

Dandylions and nettles all seem fine!

The marigold I had in the same pot is fine, flowering beautifully, strange that's not been infected with any fungus. Wish I'd left the Osteospurmum in the tubs now, may have spread it into soil

Oh dear, I put them in the garden and no improvement, didn't notice any fungus on them, but very small roots as if they'd not grown at all. Thanks for info
