Rudbeckia seedlings

Posted: 24/03/2016 at 14:58

Last year not one germinated this year I sowed on 26/02 and still have no seedlings. All my chilli,toms, pepper etc are next to the tray have germinated.

Not sure where I am going wrong here.

Might have to buy plugs or plants later in season.

I have a area of my garden where there is a lot of moss growing in my lawn. If i pull it up now for baskets in the summer, any idea of how to store it or should i just pull it up in late spring?

Thanks,

Cut out all the old stems so see what happens next year!

Blackcurrent pruning

I'm confused. According to the what to do now above. I should be pruneing my blackcurrants now, however the RHS website advises to prune when dormant in late autumn early winter. Also although I have approximately eight strongest stems I have about 15 smaller stems growing from the base. should I prune most of the smaller stems out leaving only two or three of the stronger ones to replace the original stems when mature.
