Elderberry Tree

Posted: 28/03/2015 at 18:48

I have never known mine to self seed, I think the birds must eat the berries before they drop.

I love the blossom, reminds me of my mums home made elderflower  wine, beautiful!

I much prefer square pots, they fit nicely in a seed tray. I dont buy news papers but we can scrounge some!

I love them Grace, I have a Potter, makes round ones, you can make them very deep for beans, peas, sweet peas etc, whatever needs a pot for deep roots.

There is no root disturbance because you plant the whole lot out.

Just did mine, in the greenhouse at the moment but I will bring them in and put on a widowsill, or in the conservatory if its get a bit warmer. 

Sea Holly

Posted: 27/03/2015 at 17:45

Its always quite wet here, being on the edge of Dartmoor it has its own rain cloud! Sea holly thrives and spread by self seading here, I do have it in full sun.

No special treatment, I cut the dead flowers off as they fade but last year kept some to run to seed.

Dont be too hard on Edd, he really is a lovely person and is usually our resident joker!

He has his share of problems, one quite recently, but he is a private person so I can see why he doesnt like this thread.

Please, dont make anything of it, we can all post our thoughts, problems etc and we will continue to support each other.

Thank to KEF for opening this thread.



Watching seedlings grow

Seeds sown very recently using natures own propagator, always best to wait and with longer daylight hours, no leggyness. IMO that is, I know lots of people love to start in February!
