peony seeds

Sow fresh, leave outside over winter. Watch out for mice who love to eat them.

OR,Soak in warm water overnight, then put the wet seeds in the Salad section of the fridge for 3 months, then sow as for normal seeds.

New trees

Did you remove the compost in which the trees came and spread the roots out? Not doing that is the major cause of trees not growing properly. The roots seem to prefer the compost in which they were potted and instead of spreading out, they just go round and round, then when the food in the compost runs out, they fail.

If it is Echinops, then where are the bracts which should be just below the flower?

Allium, for sure.

wild damsons and apples

Posted: 31/08/2015 at 13:35

Damson seeds contain cyanogenetic glycocides, a substance that can change into a killer in the body. The body can detoxify small quantities of cyanide, so lots of Damson pits would need to be consumed to die from the poison.

Actually adding some stones to the Jam gives it am almond flavour.

Makes eating it something of an adventure though!
