Brumball, I'm not sure where your replies have disappeared too, but thought I would let you know that a couple of my Fatsia have germinated after a few days back in the airing cupboard. I'm hoping that a few more might appear over the next few days.

Hi Jayne,

Did you get any flowers last year?

Thanks Brumball, they have spent time in the airing cupboard but then I wondered if they needed

light. Abutilons are showing signs of life but I'll put the Fatsia back in the dark and warm and hope for the best.

Morning Brumball,

I shall be potting on some seedlings and perhaps popping out to the garden centre to see what's new.

I'm quite new to posting here and am trying to find my way around the forums, so I hope I'm doing this right!

Sounds like you're roots are in the same place as mine Brumball, I still call myself a Brummie even though I haven't lived there for many, many years. A great place and lovely people.

Morning everyone, snow here in the East Midlands again - where is Spring?

I'm growing some Abutilon from seed this year and would like to keep one or two of them as houseplants. Will they thrive and flower indoors?

I also planted some Fatsia seeds several weeks ago which haven't germinated, should I give up or does anyone have ways of waking stubborn seeds?

Thanks Rob, sounds pretty straight forward. I think it's probably the position that's the problem.

Well folks I've just found my way here as my favourite site for gardening queries has closed down while I was away on holiday. I'm still finding my way around so please bear with me.

 Does anyone have any tips to encourage African Violets into flower?
