Maybe a local conservation/wildlife charity. Might be worth contacting local hospitals or charities

Hollyhock seedlings stopped growing

Posted: 10/05/2015 at 21:26

Your seedlings will do better outdoors now, more light as the days are longer. Hollyhocks are hardy plants so can cope. Just harden them off by taking them outside in the day for a couple of days and then leave them out.

 

Any one planted out their runners?

Runners have been planted, will keep an eye on the temps

Pests. GRRRRRRR !

Lupin has a serious wooly aphid problem, first time I've ever seen them, no missing them though! Not holding out much for the poor plant

Autumn flowering wallflowers

Posted: 10/05/2015 at 09:44

I'm a bit of wall flower fan as well. Not every grown the sugar rush type, but pretty colours.

I've just got some Fire King seeds and some Fair lady ones. Will be holding off sowing these for a while. Both say sow late summer (June- August) for Spring flowering or late Winter (Jan- March) for autumn.

Agree the Bowels Mauve type will flower for most of the year, really good plant to have and so easy to take cuttings from

Multi purpose vs seed compost for veg seeds

Posted: 09/05/2015 at 22:14

I sow all my seeds in multi purpose compost I'm a bit to tight to spend money on seed compost. I can see the finer texture might be helpful to the little seedlings.

KEF I have to say that's dedication to the cause

I live in South Wales so not too bad temp wise. Didn't grow these ones from seed bought them as small plants so have potted them on once. Think they may have been sown to early as they definatly want to run!
