Perennial wallflower

Hi benno, if the plant is fair size, I would check to see if it needed potting on and  harden it off outside before planting in the ground. They are hardy and strong plants.

Mine are flowering again

Did some more verbena bs as a back up plan when the others weren't showing any thing, just going to leave them be in the cold frame. I've  read cuttings should be easy to take as well.

I struggle with getting Larkspurs and Delphs to germinate, just don't get Larkspurs..........

Think maybe a clemantis montana would do ok in less than good soil This one if happy grows like mad though, early flowering type, but lovely foilage, does go to stick in the winter.

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

Can't see it being a problem, I have 2 cats and the only thing they've caught yet is a baby rat.............
