Seed packet grumbles

Posted: 01/05/2013 at 18:17

I'm growing for verbena boneralis for the first time, sowed them I think in Jan, did the in the fridge, inside, outside in a cold frame, was very close to ditching them but thought I'd give them  a bit longer. More out of frustration I had a scratch about in the compost and then soon after up they came Probably got about 20 seedlings

I don't do the soaking or chitting of any seeds either

Hi Emma, don't think think the grassy stuff is crocosmia, think it's more likely to out of the wildflower mix. The little blue flowers poking through are forget me nots, not sure what they are growing through.

Pull the sycamores out, I get loads of little beech growing here

Don't think you are doing anything wrong Bushy, I did the same with some lobelia and it hasn't done much yet. Are they still looking healthy?

I've been thinking about using nemotodes, but it was the cost that put me of, so I probably wont bother
