its so cold here ,the central heating makes no difference .I cant face going outside to do anything as I would have to wear at least 6 coats and ten hats.
its not a plant for indoors really,it likes the cool and it likes a little water often and misted.
thorny with a scent of humour.
I saw pergine in Scotland one year a very remote spot ,he had those talons (yellow) and that beak,it was horrible to watch him take a blackbird and fly off to spot to eat him alive,I didt forget that,but it was his lunch.
you would need a very hardy type of seed that take the punishment of use .I am thinking of rye grass you best asking the garden shop.
on mine it said in sunny spot protected from bad weather in short,
I have also tried this with out success and wondering to put them in very poor soil and out side to elements to create the conditions they would growing in in the wild.
you should also do it to gooseberry bushes to stop sawfly,they dont like the space or air that circulates if you do this,I have just done mine and it does help,having had a very bad bout of sawfly on them some two years ago.
I don't do that any more,as applied for many free pkts and I only had one weedy pkt and no reply from the others.
I have similar problem with one of the gardens(in fact there are 5 gardens in all that run into mine and all are problem)that the person in question has lost interest and does no gardening hence I have a huge Rhododendron growing up my hawthorn tree and allsorts of over grown bushes and shrubs.We just lean over and hack at it ever so often but unless we get really nasty (which one wouldnot want to) there is not a lot else.I chop off what comes over and pull the ivy away,annoying.
