They were all put in their own pots small one with seeding compost I added some sand to the John innings, most of the seedlings are about 11/2" tall and have two adult leaves on. I think I will move them to the unheated conservatory what do you think Dove

I can take a photo and post it if you wish

I thought you waited untill the frost has killed of the folige and then dig them up turn them upside down for a week or two and then store them in a cool dark place in a brown bag or straw.


turning upside down to let the water drain out so they don't root

I have sown some lupins about five weeks ago and all is well or should i say all was well until about a week ago when I noticed they were turning light green and now some are dying off.


I have no mound on them. So I was just wondering if it’s too cold for the young seedlings at night they are or I thought they were sheltered from the wind and are not sat in hot sun in the day.

I have some peppers (seedlings) in the same location, these where just a test to see if my own collected seeds from a orange pepper would germinate and guess what everyone germinated these seedlings are in really good health so what is killing my Lupins ??

I just wish I could move the kid's bikes out and have lighting.

May be one day I will have a go at running a cable in from the garage.




Bulb advice please plus future plans

yes fidget you are right I know there is a area behind the rockery that is like a cave/den for them as I used to cut the grass there but now it stops growing as it's too dark between the rockery and the conifers ( in the corner) 

I think for next year I will just throw wild flower seeds at the garden then and just leave it alone and maybe the foxes will come back But in saying that we never have any cats in the garden back or front back because of the dogs and maybe the front because of foxes ??

I have brambles growing in that part or the garden would you cut them back or just leave
