Lovely pictures nut, the last Acer is glorious. Such lovely colours and the sunshine brought them all out I've not ever had a Rhus but always admired them at this time of year.

I leave all the foilage to die down on mine aym, home for some insects in the Winter.  I think they probably are seeds but I'd say more likely to spread from the courns at their roots. I've got the plain old orangey one and it will spread  if left unchecked.

Most of mine are now in pots, I've got a clump that needs coming out of the hot bed. I expect to be removing bits of it for a while. The Lucifer type  always looks good, no space here for one

Get rid of it if you don't like it. If you are feeling that guilty you can always pot up some courns in pots and leave outside.

To feed or not to feed seedlings

I don't think you need to feed them  just a bit of water to stop them drying out

I'm with you flumpy, I could stay in til then or if I had the cash just move to somewhere sunnier for the Winter months.

Hope you've enjoyed the sunshine aym, there was some late weak sun here but not enough to tempt me outside. Enjoy your new purchases I haven't even planted any bulbs yet, still time and it's something I do every year as it is so worth it come Spring
