Mould in seed pan (viburnum)

Exactly.

And how else does one learn except by having a go? We were all like that once upon a time and despite growing things for far too many years, there are still lots of things that I don't know about plants and growing them. We learn all the time, or at least one ought to.

Have fun with it!

Mould in seed pan (viburnum)

All Viburnums need periods of cold and warmth to initiate germination. The last place they should be is in your Conservatory. The mould is there probalby because the compost is too wet and too warm. Scrape off the mould and put the seeds outside somewhere and leave them to get on with it. And they can take over 2 years to germinate, so patience is needed.

She has weathered well though, remember her from Tomorrow's World. Philippa Forrester, I mean.

Why prune? It may well be that they do not flower because you ARE pruning. They flower on wood produced this year, so any pruning now is going to remove flowers.

Well, I found it slow, they repeated themselves over and over again. Basically half an hours program stretched into an hour.

Content was interesting, but presented in a dumbed down, dull way.

They sound terribly small for 4 years old. I grew P. Katrina from a cutting takeb 2 years ago and that is over 6 feet tall already and good and bushy too. Had a few flowers this year and plenty of new growth for flowers next.

To be honest I think they may well be too root constricted in a pot, they do better in the garden where the roots can sprad out.

Very definitely not edible. they are poisonous. I would remove them asap, so that no one mistkes them for the real thing.

The only stinging nettle found in Britain is Urtica dioica.

And save the seed, sow it in Spring and they take about 2 years to flower.

Before sowing the seeds read the thing I wrote. Advice (from very practical experience, growing dozens of different species over the last 20 years) is different to Obelixx.
