Seed and plant swap 2015

Posted: 22/07/2015 at 21:49

No problem jo47, just pm your details. There won't be a lot in quantity, they are really tiny seeds. Always germinated well for me in the past.

Thanks Gardenmaiden, I'd be interested in the dark ones

Seed and plant swap 2015

I have some jacobs ladder, white ragged robin and some mixed sweet williams which are nearly ready. These have come fresh off the plants.

Also got some spare Wallflowers, Fire King and Fair Lady.

Looking for some Hollyhocks as the one I have here hasn't developed rust. Also interested in cuttings off houseplants.

So pleased

I haven't seen a hedgehog in years. I keep popping to the window to see if he's eaten anything but I think he's still hiding under the bench.

Do you think they will come everynight if food is put out for them? I get the cats in around this time so thinking I could feed the hog at the same time as I feed them

So pleased

Just seen a hedgehog outside by the back door. He's under the bench right now but I have left him out some cat food.

Made my day

I've got a few different types of Aquilegia lurking about so will have a go at these as well. Thanks Lyn

We've all got things to learn Verdun which is why I use this forum. I also think differences make for a much more interesting place. No one does it the right or best way all the time

Sown mine today I'm sure they will look good when the time comes

Not sure but when I had only white in the garden, their offspring came up the same colour.

You get loads of seeds off one plant so you could collect a few and enjoy the rest

Sowing perennial plants

Thanks both. I'm ruling out Lupins as for the first time I had the woolly aphids and that was the end of that. Shame as I love those plants.

Sounds like it's worth giving what I find a go then. I've got time and patience Dave, gardening has taught me that. Not too bad on space Still got loads of this years plants which I'm potting up but they will find new homes.

Now I'm in a better place will be having a go at sowing some autumn sown hardy annuals I think

 

Wallflowers

Sorry Verdun, don't do the who's got the biggest one?!!!  Not about wallflowers anyway.Gardening's not a competition, well not for me

I wouldn't know if you had bought them, grown them from seed and sown when or bought them as bare roots in the Autumn!!

All I would say is that it's still not too late to sow them now 

When can new seeds be used

Posted: 12/07/2015 at 11:30

I try and leave the seeds on the plant until they are fully formed. A lot of seeds become brown or black and come away from the plant really easily.

If you take off the seeds when they are not fully formed I don't think they will germinate. Once collected, store in a paper envelope and then sow

I've got seeds forming on my delphs but they are no where near ready, the seed pods are still green, they should be brown and you will be able to see the seeds inside them when they are ready
