I can't even grow from seed!!!!!!!

Posted: 21/03/2013 at 17:53
Hello Bagz It might be a good idea to invest in a small propagator - they are very inexpensive.
This is how I sow my seeds
I use clean pots or trays ,fill the trays with seed compost and press down lightly with another pot or tray. I then water the pot using a fine rose on my watering can.
Then I sprinkle the seeds on top and cover with vermiculite and spray with water to dampen it. Put the propagator somewhere light and warm and hopefully the seeds will germinate after a few days. Don't water the pots/trays - they shouldn't need it but if the vermiculite looks dry spray lightly with water.
I hope this helps .
Himalayan poppies are not the easiest seeds to germinate

I wouldn't bury them deep like you can with tomatoes as the stems are much more tender and they may rot . If they need some support just put a flower stick in  for now

Good Morning Everyone

Becks - my Grandchildren love Lasagne - it is easy to make,honest  I will tell you how I make it if you would like

I am 5'7" and size ?????? - you are all slim

I hate going to the hairdressers and always wash my hair at home before I go - I must admit it is getting harder to cover up all the grey bits

I can't wait to get in the greenhouse again this morning - just going to have my brekkie

Have a lovely day

Geoff - I also grow Crystal Apple/Lemon cues and a small fruited  variety called La Diva - homegrown cues taste soooooooo much nicer than shop bought  In my greenhouse I will be trying a couple of grafted ones called Fitness

If it was me I would do both  Try a plant in the greenhouse and one in a container outside - see which does best
