To Pinch Out or Not?

Posted: 02/04/2016 at 17:52

I pinch out my wallflowers and they grow to be a lot bushier. Don't know about the other. I pinch out most things, so if you have a few why not pinch out a couple and see how they do

Here's my seed house


 

First seedlings were echium blue bedder. First time growing them. Really quick germination of 10 days.


 

 

Sown the same time. Blue annual scabious, took two weeks to come up


 

I only started sowing a couple of weeks ago Lorna, did some more today

Sounds like things are moving quickly Gardeners Boy, very exciting

It was chilly out there today Hosta, did a couple of hours, in multiple layers of clothing.  Sowed some giant and perennial scabious, some maltese cross, honesty and foxgloves. I've done some more but can't remember already.

So far so good with the cuttings. All but one are standing up and looking healthy

Seed and Plant swap 2016

I've sown them both before in seed trays or strips. I'd bury the honesty seeds a bit deeper as they are larger seeds and the plant grows strong roots. I'd would pot on quite quickly once they are up and growing. The roots like a lot of space.

I've sown some myself today. This time I'm sowing one seed into each 2" cell. I'm not covering them and they are outside in one of my open frames.

I had a really good germination rate last year with the lychnis.
