Scarifying: what is it?

Posted: 14/03/2016 at 10:46

After scarifying we use Westland feed, weed and moss killer. Never needed to reseed.

Plug Plants

All my garden flowers started of as cheap plugs, then I have taken seeds and divided from there. If you can afford 48 large plants at around 5.00 each, then you can of course buy them and they will flower this year.

those plugs won't, you need to pot them on gradually and over winter them this coming winter, also, pick any flower buds of them this year, so they can make decent roots, they can't make root and flower. 

If you have the patience, then get them, but they will be a long slow process to bring them on to good sized plants. Even then, I wouldnt recommend T &M, there is a thread on here somewhere saying they are not very good.

I haven't had them outside either, but I use the same as Dove, you have to follow up though, one dose doesn't do it.
