Seed swap

Thanks hollie hock I got my false sunflower and have been outside today planting it in a compost bag- until I know where to plant properly. Looks great.

What time does the false sunflower flower?

T&M seeds came today as well so nice goodies arriving through the post. I want to have a go at a bit more seed sowing but might not yet - the seeds may get too leggy.

Sam that sounds a good way of going about your garden I think -  do it in bits, I manage to do that sometimes then I get put off by something else and do a bit of gardening there as well. Things do distract me.

When is gardeners world back on the TV??

I liked Toby Buckland presenting GW at Greenacre, Monty is ok but some like, some don't - I guess its the same with other GW presenters.   I watch more for the information and to see what others are doing in the garden, I am interested in gardening.

But I do like watching GW

I would try to move the foxgloves, viola and maybe the iris and crocosmia not sure about the others - some of them might be ok to move as flower later. If that helps

I watched Carol Klein Life in a Cottage Garden before enjoyed it so will watch it again.

Gardeners World does feel like a long time away, but will be watching the A to Z of gardening programmes - 25 weeks thats good- I like the first one, that is the right time to put gardening show on TV as GW not on yet but I guess they can't show much in winter as not much they want to do outside.

Thanks Caz W how much of a annual chop back do you give it? I have only cut mine back a little for cuttings. Will try doing cuttings in a bucket of water like the sound of that way - going about cuttings.

Nutcutlet I guess if you cut the dogwood it would make a straight plant, My dogwood near a fence so only collects it own leaves really.

Mine are indoors in plastic cups starting to get leaves, moved to a bit cooler area so roots might appear, not done cutting before of dogwood normal red type - I do like the midwinter fire one nice yellow, red and orange  - nice in winter when no leaves.

When was it you took the cuttings Caz W I would like to try that way.

Seeds are up

That's all right Sam if you have more seeds you can sow more later on.

My seeds still not showing themselves yet from seed swapping.

Are your seed swapping seeds doing ok?
