Sweet Pea germination

They  dont take long and I plant them in in the card board toilet rolls as this protects the roots and you can transfer them straight into the planting site and the cardboard justs rots.I was advised to plant in oct which is best but this time because of the heavy rain last year ,I might delay untill spring.

Anyone know the name of this fruiting plant...?

it is quince from the Japan.the flowers in spring are pink and the fruit when cooked as a jelly give a lovely scent and rose tint to it.

Any damage?

I have just done what Monty told me to do,plant those wall flowers by the end of October.Just did it in time before the storm started.Hopefully I will have a carpet of wallflowers in Spring.I grew these from seed ,the packet cost 10 pence,in fact I bought a dozen of these selling off seeds dated 2 years out of date.I only planted 1 pkt and had so many seedlings come up well over 50 plants and still have some to plant out although its possibly to late.The best buy yet and when you think you can pay £1-50 for a dozen.I would thou like to plant a different variety too,as there is so many to choose from .So storm just starting ,shut the greenhouse batten down the hatches,bet the fences go first.

Grandpa had one just like it
