Hardening off flower seedlings in plastic greenhouse

Posted: 31/03/2013 at 13:07

Think you doing the right thing re hardening them off slowly. I have seen quite a few seedlings outside in my cold frames, but they are in a very sheltered spot and have been outside before this very cold weather.

good effect of a wet summer

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

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

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.
