Growing from seed is great, been doing it a couple of years now and it's amazing how many plants you can get from a few seeds. Learnt loads on here, so always ask the question

Thanks Bob, the whites have had a really good year

I know.... for the life of me I couldn't get it into a sharper focus, I was surprised how big it was, if it's still there tomorrow I'll try and take a better picture

Noticed a few around this year. The first I saw today, at first glance I thought it was slug but it's definatley a caterpillar of some sort. It seemed to be

I've seen a lot of these on the sweet rockets, I thought they might be cabbage whites but I thought they were green?

Hello everyone, looks like the station project is still doing well gardengirl. I like the dark wood effect when it comes to plants, think it shows off all the green and the flowers.

Heating is now back on, curtains are closed.  I don't like the darker months but I do like the changing of the seasons..............and it's raining

That is a beautiful flower, amazing colour and a great photo happymarion........ what a fantastic gift!

 

Where would i get one of these

Posted: 11/09/2013 at 18:29

No idea what it's called.......there's a local charity nearby that may do things like this. Bought a long handled bulb planter from them in the past. They sell and repair old donated tools but they also sell them

They are called Tools for Self Reliance Cymru

Hi nut...........that makes sense, will have a go at collecting the seeds. Will wait a little for the pods to go brown, still green at the moment.

Think I grew them as the seeds were really cheap and I've been really surprised how much I like them chicky. They grew quickly and have strong stems (all be it a bit prickly) so they haven't bent and don't need any staking, Seem to be fairly draught tolerant as well

I've grown them for the first time here, didn't know they are prone to self seed, that's good news I really like them

My first instinct is that  they wouldn't grow true to type but then again I haven't see a lot of insects of them. I think the seed is really tiny, I can see seed pods on a few of mine

I know that cornflowers are annuals so they flower and die in one season, you could let the seeds dry and store them for next year. I always get a few cornflowers that pop up in unexpected places so they do self seed. I'm still deadheading my cornflowers, just squeezing the last of the flowers off them.

Some poppies are annuals and some are perennials as are daisies.
