point taken, & another thing these Boston seeds I was given they do not say if they are Perennial, which I would prefer instead of plant every year.
So I wonder what should I do end of summer or next year, do I moan them down or what happens? ......nick
for checking if something is annual or perennial pfaf is a good place to look, followed by wiki of course, the trouble with wiki is every page is formatted slightly differently so finding the right bit of info quickly isn't so easy. I have pfaf store as a search engine.
By the way, a lot of seed suppliers only give very general advice, if any on how to sow your seed so I check with pfaf first to find out if the seed needs special treatment. Again, another example of why you can't always leave it to nature. sorry, take Thrift, Ameria maritima, a lovely plant, and fairly common on the coast. I've always had some so never bothered trying to grow it from seed until I moved here and wanting a clean slate wanted to collect local seed. It didn't grow. I checked on pfaf, and after soaking the seeds got hundreds come up. Saves you wasting seed. I just did the same thing with hounds tongue. Sowed it without thinking. Realised what I'd done after watering in the seeds. I soaked the next batch and they all came up in just over a week. First lot still not come up.
