Seed swap

Posted: 05/01/2013 at 17:09

I had a look around garden today few more plants starting to grow a bit more -amazing must be the temperature here as well, the primroses some look like they might flower earlier than before, shame about your gargoyle thing.

Do you have a front and back garden?  So you could put your present on show or nicely in the plants.

Just have to keep looking around the garden I guess to see what has grown a bit more.

New Years Day flower count

Hello nutcutlet

I got garden news paper and in it Clare Foggett the editor does a new years day flower count, things in flower are coronilla valentina glauca,geranium 'bill wallis', anthemis 'sauce hollandaise' erysimum 'bowles's mauve', cream and mauve bedding violas and the buds of viburnum bodnantense 'dawn' are very close to opening. she said there were more flowers last year even though she has added more to the garden.

Have not heard about the flower count till being on GW forum

I am a bit like that nutcutlet, I am a bit fussy. Easier if they are in pots better to put in the right place in the garden, than them rooting in the ground not so easy to move then.

Seeds are up

That's good Sam are your seeds indoors they must be fast seeds - mine not shown themselves yet but has not been that long I suppose since I sowed them same day but different seeds. I do have cuttings that I took of cornus dogwood red indoors that seems to be in leaf but no signs of roots yet only done about 3 weeks ago in plastic cup - don't know if they should be somewhere cooler to root. Any one know?

That's good hollie hock glad you got the cuttings, can I ask what to do with the false sunflower when it arrives?  Do I put it outside in some compost in a pot or in the ground, or does it need to be indoors for a while.

I think my green fingers are failing me

Try going in bags may be its the soil - runner beans less fussy

Have you tried to grow potatoes in bags?

May be if you get a bit stressed have a go at swearing at the weeds might help a bit, but the weed may still stay but could go, have a go and tell us if it works.

That sounds good I will grow plants for swap seed as well. spend lots of money this way.

That would be good if the weeds went away, probably just makes them grow
