I can't see a photo. Can you post a photo using the camera icon?

What to do with apple seeds that have been in the fridge for 3 weeks.

They won't come out like grannysmiths or golden delicious.

You could spend a lot of time and space getting a very poor result.


Another plant id - sorry.

When you cut down the teasel stems, they are hollow. I have stuffed lengths into a plastic bottle with the top cut off. I put them in the bug hotel.

Avens aka Geum urbanum

It will have a delicate yellow flower and then seed all over the garden. . Get it out before it flowers.

Poppy seeds or weeds?

The ones with forked leaves are Californian poppies., as nut says.

I just watched yesterday's. If you still have it, look at the faces on the people behind Grayson Perry.

As my mother would say... It looks like the circus is in Town.

Let's get really radical, try asking some gardening members of the public what they think.

Oh, sorry, that's what this thread is.

Apparently, some plants are male and some female. I like the central one with red calyx.

 How big is your pot?

Maybe you could stand a smaller pot onto a larger pot of compost, the roots will go through the bottom and you can keep the bottom pot wetter.
