hydrangia buds rotting

I would leave it until first week in April, then cut back to the next nice bud. If you do them early the frost will have them and you will need to do it again anyway.

Pruning cotoneaster

It will, I just chop them back with a hedge cutter, any time they get out of hand., they will grow cut right from the base, and nice and thick. I assume it's the one with the tiny little leaves?

My daughter has dug hers up as they are filling her border, brought them all up to me to plant, must be a dozen huge plants, some I grew from seed for her. They are all in full flower at the moment.

This is what happens when seeds are sown too early, they will be very tall by the time you can plant them out in May.

Growing lettuce in pots

Posted: 26/03/2016 at 20:38

I have grown some in a deep seed tray, I can then pick off the outside leaves and they will grow again, keep sowing in succession, who wants 100 lettuses ready to eat in one week. I do the same with radish, sow a dozen in a large ice cream tub or similar, then again in two weeks time. 

Can you identify this plant?

Cerinthe seeds

That's what I mean Nut, they drop thousands of seeds, never to be seen again, so I pick them up and start off next spring indoors.

I have never got any to germinate in the garden. Always sown indoors.

Probably not warm enough to germinate, are you giving then a constant 21c you could try bringing them indoors on a warm window sill.
