Viola - Plant or Not to Plant?

Posted: 30/03/2013 at 22:56

They will be fine outside, like Dove, mine have been out all winter and still flowering, would have more if I remembered to keep deadheading.

Good idea to harden them off first for a couple of days

Aldis today were selling off their bedding plants, needless to say I have now bought more lobelia. 79p for a tray of 10 plants

Too cold to relocate perennials?

The little Lupins and Aquilegia look none the worse despite the snow and hard frosts. The crocus are still trying, if the sun shone for a day I might get to see them open

Echinecias

Seen some growth on 2 of the Echinecias,  just popping through. Very pleased. Got 4 seedlings that have germinated this year. 

Are they bushy in habit, or does one stem have one flower head?

Who cares about the stylus? Harsh yes, but as others have said pen and paper does the same job or you can just do it you head and see what happens.

I can't even grow from seed!!!!!!!

I've never used any vermiculite in any of my seed sowings £8 on something that is not needed. I use some good fine compost in a propagator (Wilkos) and that's it.

I use firefox at home and prefer it to internet explorer. I like the free add ons

Not heard of Regworks before now, seems like it's some sort of   registry cleaning software that comes automatically with the machine.  When I googled it it would seem that most people want to get rid off it. If it were me I wouldn't update it. I think  a registry clean up is basically clearing old unwanted files that you accumalate when you use the internet. Firefox has an option to do this every time you close it.

I am in no way an expert but there is loads of free anti virus programmes out there. I've been using avast for years and had no problems. Hope that helps

Hi Zoomer, I don't class it at cheating just adding to your stock. I do grow  violas & lobelia from seed but at that price........... I just have more
