Sunflower Seedlings

Sadly I have to agree with Ladybird. I would scrap those and start again in April. Two seeds per pot and when they germinate remove the weakest one.


They need a bright place to live like a sunny windowsill, and as soon as possible put them outside in a sunny sheltered spot during the day and bring them indoors at night until thelast frosts are over then you can plant them outside.


Give them a strong cane each and try to protect them from slugs and snails.

And don't forget to feed it - you can't expect it to flower all summer and autumn without being fed. 


What tree/plant are these seeds from and how do I grow them?

Not mountain ash seeds. Mountain ash have red or orange berry-like fruits with a seed inside.

They look like ash tree seeds to me.  i would expect a high proportion of them to germinate and you will have eight saplings with the potential to grow into large forest trees. 


Id rather leave them be and have a look on our seed swap thread for something you can sow and grow to its full potential

Obbelix - I try cooking large batches in order to freeze some  - quite often a whole batch disappears into OH - he is a skinny fellow with hollow legs

That would be to make sure they matched for surface/grain and colour - one slightly paler door from another batch would really look awful - it's the sort of service I'd expect from a top notch supplier and not necessarily from B&Q - I'm impressed.

I heartily agree Verdun - a few minutes deadheading buddleia once a week kept mine flowering into November last year

Tomatoes - time to sow!

I always sow my outdoor ones in April too - absolutely no point in starting earlier - they just get pale and lanky and floppy with having to be on the dining room windowsill for too long.  I've always had good crops from plants sown in April so I'm not going to change now
