Is it possible to divide Sweet Williams?

Posted: 02/05/2015 at 23:47

I do the same as well butterfuly, sometimes just can't be bothered so they are all go in together.

Not sure why yours didn't bloom Dimwit. A lot of the plants you buy have been nurtured to bloom early. A couple of my plants are now starting to form the very beginnings of flowers.

Sometimes when I've been a bit too enthusastic about pinching out the plant has flowered less well

Just wanted to share :)

Well done, will be growing forget me nots later this year.

Gardening is so much fun and with these they will self seed so you will never be without them. All that from a packet of seeds

marigold / sweet pea seeds

Posted: 02/05/2015 at 20:48

Hello, I would have thought you would ok with the marigolds, as I think they are annuals. I've sowed a few annuals in the last couple of weeks.  I sowed my sweetpeas about a month ago which was late for me. They are about 2 inches stall and I haven't pinched out the leaves yet. I think if you could do them now, you'll get later blooms and maybe for not so long.

You can pick up small sweetpeas really cheap, but if you wanted to grow your own I would sow them

Hi nut, yes they were, can't remember now which ones you had. I know that I collected from some pinks and some dark reds. I gave away a lot of the bigger plants that I grew, but the ones I have will flower this year, will collect the seed again.

When I've had them in previous gardens, sometimes they did grow little off shoots so the plant kept on going for a few years, sometimes they can self seed as well.The seeds are easy to collect and germinate really quickly.

I had some nice plants last year so collected the seeds and the new plants will be flowering soon. I picked what I thought was the nicest colour so will be interesting to see if they flower the same. I really like sweet williams
