Gerbera from saved seeds

Posted: 15/10/2013 at 14:51

Otnorot, they are lovely, love the first the most.

Mine are in pots and I've just put them in the GH, not too cold, but getting sodden. I might sew the seeds I've saved ASAP, but they have been inside drying a while, along with many others "cluttering all available surfaces." ( or so I'm told)

Thanks for reply & photos.

I'm sure you're right about the sun...I was testing you ( me back peddling) and you passed. My answer never even mentioned location, didn't give it a thought, think I'm just obsessed with giving plants tomato food.   When do you prune yours? Mine only had a little trim in Spring.

Hi Eloise, good info' from Verdun.

Sounds lovely Lizzie. I do similar but use Oregano not Rosemay, no onion but add a chopped fact not similar at all

Good luck with naughtie ones.

Fairy, thanks I did enjoy my lie in, must have been all the hard work I did yesterday..buying a couple of jumpers is hard work, as is eating salted peanuts.

At last the sun is out..make haste etc...

Serious! Really

Verdun fun thread

The man from UNCLE was my fav. Closely followed my Mr.Ed the talking horse, every time the wife shouted "Wilber" I used to chuckle. Did like SKIPPY..the bush kangaroo & Flintstones. Land of the Giants, first thing I saw in colour.

Comedy..Sooo I'd say Open All Hours..or maybe not..Steptoe & Son..I could go on and on.

bitter swede

The only time I had bitter swedes I did harvest too soon. I don't think you need frost on them.

Anyone know what this is

Mine is in a big pot, it didn't flower the first two years. This year it has flowered well, I did what I tend to do with flowering plants/ shrubs in pots such as clematis..Some slow release fertiliser in early spring & a few liquid feeds with tomato food during the flowering season to promote flower growth. 

I don't feed it with a liquid general purpose plant food. Works for me, but I'm sure other posters will have more detailed info'.

Just for EMMA
