Growing from seed for beginners...

Posted: 07/02/2016 at 08:55

Hi Sparkles, definatley not false economy. The amount of plants that comes from a packet of seeds never ceases to amaze me. I love growing from seeds, for me it's the best bit of gardening apart from propagating cuttings.

Try and sow thinly as if every seeds germinates you will have a lot of plants! I haven't grown the plants that you are looking to grow but good luck.

I use a normal propagator sometimes start them off in house and then move them outside to a cold frame. In the Spring and Summer I sow outside and let them get on with it. Have fun with your seed sowing

wrong time of year

I didn't do much/any Autumn sowing, with the mild winter I wish I had. Hardy annuals can be sowed this way too

I like seedaholic, have had good germination with all the seeds I've bought form them. The packaging is good, tells you all you need to know about the plant

Shrubs & Flowers for large North facing garden

I don't really have any idea about shrubs. Some low light, shady plants could include hostas, pulmonarias, cowslips, primoses, ferns, foxgloves, honesty, cyclamen. My last garden had shade for about half the year and I had some luck with sweet williams and shanta daisies
