Seed pods on New Zealand Flax

Posted: 21/08/2015 at 22:07

I would like to know this as well ! My husband cut the stem with the seed pods off & I have hung it up in my greenhouse to dry them out.I've no idea if this will work or if it's the right thing to do  .If it's successful, when do I sow them & how long should I expect germination to  take?

Thanks Fairygirl. I didn't think they'd get this far to be honest, so I'd hate to lose them ! I think you're right, cold frame is the way to go

I dug out some tiny seedlings from the cracks in my patio and they have grown on really well, They are now between 4" & 6" high & in 3" pots.

Trouble is I am not sure what to do next - do I plant them out in the autumn or leave them to overwinter in a cold frame? If I do leave them in a cold frame, should I pot them on into bigger pots or leave them as they are? 

Advice much appreciated

Thanks Verdun, as you say fascinating, particularly to my neighbour's little girl. She stares at it for ages !!

Our phormium "Sundowner" (I think), has flowered this year for the first time impressing the neighbours if nothing else .

Can anyone advise what do we do when flowering is over please? Do we cut the spike off, or just leave it to go naturally?

Hi John,

 Glad you enjoyed it  -I think we're going to wait & see what the weather's like tomorrow & decide at the  last minute . Saw the Floral marquee on GW last night - oh the temptation !! Friend of mine went on Thursday & said there seemed to be more room in there this year.

Hi Linda, glad you had a good time !

I know what you mean about the seeds - I have a large tin full of packets already, but it won't stop me thinking "ooh I must have that" & buying more

You could be right about my opinion  - although my husband might beg to differ !!
