Red hot poker problem

I find them hardy here, if it looks like it's got new growth coming through I would cut off the dead leaves to allow light to get in.

I got a small one last year and split it into three

Do you have any green growth? I'd be tempted to cut off the dying leaves

When will I learn?

I sowed a whole packet of snapdragon seeds in to 2 small trays last year and  I had 100s of them  I swear it looked like  every single one had germainated.

Not had a go and collecting seeds, do you just leave the seed pods dry on the stems......a bit like foxgloves?

Some of last years plants are still alive here as well Bob. Also the annual scabioius sown last year

They are lovely plants, one of mine was a root from Wilkinsons. The cuttings I've taken are doing well.

Great news Lorraine seems like they definately prefer an outside sowing and earlier than I thought.  Do you know what colour they are going to be?

 

Today I feel so happy....

I'm happy that the sun is predicted to shine here tomorrow today so will be sowing seeds and I've seen a delphinium pop up in a bed as a complete surprise.

What's eating my seedlings?!

I go for slugs and snails too, I've had similar things happen last year to mine. They can really do a lot of damage to young seedlings

just a lil' update

Always good to see pics David. Petunias look really healthy, I grow a lot of stuff in cold frames.

Bit of an after thought, I start pinching out when the seedling starts to look like a bit of a true plant, hope that makes sense

Mine had 4-5 true leaves and were looking very sturdy.
