Always fancied growing these, but have had no sucess from seed-used multi purpose - why?
Believe they are tricky to grow form seed, and establish in the garden - what are your tips for success? Even Monty struggled and had to buy some well-established plants.
Just received 2 large plugs - 2.5 inches high- should I pot on or plant out, and what compost should I use? My soil is clay and not sure on the PH, but belive is neutral to alkline going by what I can grow. Peiris with supplements, pink hydrangeas, even tulips survive the clay.
Also received some bareroot hostas should I pot on first and plant out in a few weeks?
