A newbie question about seed collecting

Posted: 10/02/2014 at 22:15

It depends on whether you are growing all red short helichrysum. If you only grow short red H, and the seed is NOT an F1,it will probably breed true. If it is F1 seed, the next generation will be a mixture of the characteristics of the grandparent (parents of the F1) if you are growing a mixture, and the flowers are open pollinated eg by bees, you could get anything.

Lessons are always learnt, Verdun, but then they go and c*** it up again.

I notice that now  the Thames is flooding, they are doing something. Its shameful. They should send all the available army, navy, etc in and the reservists if necessary.

 I thought you were quiet today....new toy to play with?

Brugmansia  is currently in 6 inch pot, dormant. Put it in a 8 or 10 inch pot of good compost, then when frosts are past, dig a big hole,in a sunny spot,  plenty of fertiliser, and watch it go. The frost will kill it, but I take cuttings every year that I keep in a jar of water on the windowsill all winter. The one in the avatar is in the garden not a pot.
