Don't sow until the ground has dried out a little. If you sow into very wet ground the seeds may well rot, as you suspect.
Any chance of a photo?
No. If the plant has produced them without being forced under glass they are fine.
It was a very cold night here, too - it got down to 0.3C. Fortunately, I'd brought my tender plants in.
Bright sunshine here today - amazing on a bank holiday
Wait and see what happens. If it wilts completely and goes brown you probably have clematis wilt. Cut it back to ground level, feed well and you will get fresh shoots.
Lavender and cotton lavender are not the same plant and can't be treated in the same way. Lavender is lavandula, whilst cotton lavender is santolina. If you cut into the old wood on lavandula it will not regenerate and die.
You can try using a weedkiller on them, but you'll have to cover all your wanted plants so that you don't get the weedkiller on them. Other than that, I'm afraid it is a matter of digging.
You're welcome, Zoomer44
Many annuals, such as cornflowers, prefer being sown where they are to flower and left alone - that may be part of your problem.
Well done on the dahlias, though.
It's just great minds thinking alike, Wintersong
Anyway, you're saying different things, so we're both useful
