Primula - growing from seed

Posted: 02/12/2014 at 23:29

I have grown the Dierama from seed, very slow, I still have them in pots after 3 years the corms are very tiny, like growing daffs from seed. 

Primulas self seed easily, those denticulata especially, I filled a compost bin with them this year, they would take over if I didnt.

What were those little silver blue ones Fishy?, I grew those from seed.

What do you have left to do in the garden this year?

I supose if you get to 75 and then have a worst year, you're not doing bad. My son has had 2 operations this year, one only yesterday, and I am nursing my mum knowing shes not going to recover like you have.

On a lighter note, I have pricked out and potted on all my delphs, foxgloves, aquilegia, and many more ready for Spring planting, still to cover most of the borders with compost I have made through the year. I have still got fuchsia cuttings well rooted to pot up.

Made a good start landscaping the pond.

The National Rose Society books. Need new home.

Halaf, are you living in the UK, That tree would not survive here, I wouldnt think, they like hot dry soil.

To cut everything down, or leave.

Thats right Logan, and I cant just cut the flowers off when they are still blooming for me. I have tons of cuttings going, just potted some on, just in case we should get a winter this year!
