 I love making up the tubs and baskets. Growing from seed is especially rewarding.

Self collected seed not germinating

I would go with Nutcutlet on this one, I always sow Delphiniums in the late summer/autumn, usually same with Auilegias, but I did sow some that Nut gave me recently and they have all germinated. 

 

Has anyone ever won?

Do you get bombarded with unwanted e-mails if you enter? I keep getting e-mails about joining the subscriber secret garden but am unsure as I don't want to get loads of advertising e-mails.

If there's an option to untick the box you won't get emails. (Or tick, whichever way round it is) 

I never have and I enter them all, but if you do you only need to unsubscribe and you won't get any more.

Seems like only green fingers has won anything then.

Not easy to grow for us West Country folk, they grow best in Scotland, Alaska and cold areas like that.

they are best in acid soil, not sure about your Cornwall soil, have you tested it.

Not sure what to do with this space.

I love staues in the garden, just got this one for a birthday present.

Would he look nice there? That's a very pretty corner.

Finally, I have made a decision ...

I grow seeds in rice/yoghurts pots, that way you just have a few of each and can grow several different lots of plants.

we've all made the mistake of growing a whole seed tray full of one variety then feeling sorry for them and can't throw them away.

We bought this one in August 2011 apart from a new blade last month it's been very good.
