sowing crocosmia

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?

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.

Annuals we befriend

I still have a ruddebekia that I grew from seed probably about 3 years ago. It's been with me through 2 house moves, dug up, in a bag and replanted. Should flower again this year. I have a gardilla goblin plant that has moved with me as well. It's finally been planted in the ground this year after so this will be it's final resting place

Similarily I have cuttings from a sweet rocket plant about the same age. I'm very attached to my ragged robins as they all come from the mum plant which I still have. I'm into the 4th generation of plants now.

I love propagation and think fondly that most of my plants have come from seeds or cuttings. I gave my mum a lot of plants and cuttings and feel the same when I see them in her garden. Also think I can increase my stock by raiding my plants back
