Sweet little flower with a lovely colour, the leaves are wrong for pulmonaria. Don't know what it is though

When do 'forget me nots' go to seed?

Posted: 18/05/2015 at 22:55

In the past I've just left the seeds on the plant until they go black, they spread everywhere. I've got 3 little plants that I'm going to do the same with this year.

anyone have one of these?

That's a new one on me, mine get a water along with everything else. I don't really improve the soil though so maybe that's why they always seem to  flower well.

Planting wild flowers in a previously heavy weeded area?

Posted: 17/05/2015 at 21:25

That's a nice little project there Dnallov. I can imagine how it would look with wild flowers all flowering.

I don't do a lot of direct sowing myself of wild flowers but do grow them in pots and then transplant when they are big enough. Just thinking it might be worth growing some perennial/ biennial  wildflowers that easily self seed for the future.

It would increase your stock year on year and some might come through if it gets weedy again.

You could do either, some people here have only just sown theirs. If it were me I'd probably go for some plugs, just because I'm a little impatient

Go careful with you back when you lay them. So far so good with all the frames that I have but I have heard many tales of them taking off, pays to think ahead. I saw the pictures of the pegs and ropes ha ha no chance. Good thinking
