thanks for the replys, i will get them outside. yes i was planning to pot those into the blue pots. they were on offer at dobbies £2.50 for the pots.

sotongeoff the seedlings are ok, i had 4 out of 24 germinate so far, 1 failed and the rest are ok. very small as you can see in the pic. Anything i can do to speed them up?

cheers

Hi i got myself some plants today. the salesperson said they are hardy now and can go outside,, however would i be better placed to grow them on a windowsill for the time being? also do you think the pots i bought should be of sufficent size when there full grown?

thanks

Snow on my new shrubs

Posted: 21/01/2013 at 18:45

Hi,

I planted a shrub border in june, where i am the snow is quite heavy and has settled on one of the shrubs so much that the branches that grow skywards are now pretty much at a right angle. will this damage my plants or will they be ok?

Thanks I will try that as I don't want the others to fail. It looks like it has rotted so your answer seems to make sense.

Hi,

I have just come home. One of the very small seedlings has gone brown and appears to be failing. the other has wilted slightly.  while two others seem to be poking there heads through the surface. I have them in a propagator with the air vents open and the temp is usually between 16-18c, i have been spraying them with water once a day.

am i doing something wrong, i dont want the others to fail
