Seeds I've collected

I use the cheap brown paper money envelopes and am putting them in a dark cool cupboard. First year of proper seed collecting

Hard plants to grow from seed

Posted: 30/10/2013 at 20:43

I always have trouble with delphs and larkspurs, don't think I've ever got a delph seed to germinate, not sure why? 

I grew verbena boneralis this year for the first time and they took an age to germinate, I put them in the fridge, out of the fridge, when I finally ignored them, they did well

hydrangea.when can i move it?

No way an expert, but I'd move it now as the soil is still warm and gives the plant a chance of getting some new roots established before the winter comes in.

getting those plants in before the storm

I'm sure they will come through flowering rose, I love wallflowers, they are so easy to grow from seed. I think you tend to get better plants grown this way. The great thing is that you can collect seeds off them next year and grow some more for free

Strangely I don't find that creepy at all, I think it's rather beautiful. I'd be pleased to find that in my garden

Compost Bins & Lovely Rats

Posted: 29/10/2013 at 21:12

I have a darlek type of composter that sits flat the earth, not seen any rats around there, but when I had a rabbit saw a lot of them, they were after the food. I'm an animal lover, but I did put poison down safely and not seen any since

They do breed at an incrediable rate and can get in anywhere.  I have cats now so hopefully they are keeping the population down
