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

Don't think it would matter as long as the soil is warm. You might not get much this year but it's a plant that will spread

Any one planted out their runners?

Thanks every one, think I'm going to chance it in the next couple of days. Don't want to keep repotting on

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!

I've potted on the runners once and now they are really going for it. I've started to harden them off and thinking of planting. Anyone else doing the same?

Night time temps look mild for the next 10 days

Cosmos Seedlings

Mine are the same as yours, I've left some of them in the trays as well as potted some on. This year I sowed my flower seeds a lot later this year, so looking to see how they compare.
