I have had my plant for years and it is now getting pretty weedy! Can I let it dry out now and then take off the bulbs, please?

My reply to Dave Morgan hasn't appeared but many thanks, Dave.

Also, thanks to Artjak, too. Shall I sow the plantlets out in the autumn or next spring?

I have just discovered a packet of Forget me not seeds that expire in 2015 and I see they only flower the following year.

Could I sow them under glass now and say in the autumn or next spring plant them out?

Many thanks KEF and bekkie hughes for both your replies - nothing ventured nothing gained but I think 150 seeds is a bit excessive so I shall share quite a few!

Would you mind if I also ask about aubergine seeds which apparently expire this year? I have just been through my seed box and also came across these!

Many thanks for your prompt reply, KEF. I shall hold onto the leek seeds until next year then and dispose of the parsnip ones asap!

I have one packet each of leek and parsnip seeds which apparently should be sown by the end of this year! Is it too late, please?

Welshonion, apologies for not answering your message before now. I have planted out the cuttings and time will tell I expect!

In a month's time I have shall be having some building work done and against one of the walls to be demolished is a small all green cotoneaster. Can I take cuttings from this before it is dug out, please?
