winter-sowing---anyone-tried

Posted: 09/08/2013 at 21:00

Keen to try this by sowing and leaving in trays in a cold frame. I want to try nicotiniana and echinacea.. Do I have to keep watering them throughout winter or just leave alone?

Never seen any rabbits around the garden Verdun And all leaves look pretty intact ,so will try the feed thank you . They had been in partial shade, but cut back a lot of branches end of last summer and now in sun for quite a lot of day.

I have a geranium which used to flower well, but I don't think has flowered for a couple of years. I don't know what geranium it is but used to have blue flowers.  until last year it had got quite smothered by I think vinca,but I have cleared around it and it has looked healthy this summer, but not one flower. Anything I can do please?

I've been looking at thesr grasses at my local GG today and very tempted to buy. My concern is if the roots are like bamboo and would be difficult to move if I change my mind, which I often do!

bigolob, I love the look of these grasses and was tempted to buy from my local GC yesterday, but my concern is if they will take over like bamboo or be really difficult to move if I change my mind?

It's almost at the base, so that sounds bad news doesn't it?

In the high winds last night one of my potato stems has virtually broken clean off. Is there anything I can do to repair? They are growing in bags.
