Talkback: Growing Verbena bonariensis from seed

Posted: 22/03/2013 at 16:27

I have just had some seed sent to me by Bev and I think I will not set these until June, and them grow them on as plants for next year. I am hoping to get enough to take them along one edge of the garden, my 12 cuttings wont go far!

I have some lychnis biz? Seeds, from daughters plant, if anyone would like some, I have set a few and they all came up quickly.
Common name is lambs ears, velvety type leaves.

Don't know what I was thinking of there! they are Stachys Biz. seeds not lychnis, sorry to confuse.

Bev, thank you so much, the seeds have arrived today, I am tempted to leave the verbena B till the summer and grow it on as a usual perennial, and plant out Autumn or early spring next year, I know they say 1st year flowering, but I have never had much success with that in other seeds.

You can keep them going in a conservatory Mike, I keep all my new cuttings, (previously taken Sep/Oct time, ) in my conservatory, there is about 100 + in there at the moment, including 3 standards just on the go.

Do you check for vine weevil, they love fuchsias?

Look after it Leggi, they are truly beautiful and rewarding plants.

I have just got my free lot of seeds, etc, there is a really good leaflet on growing, and a lovely little booklet about gardening, packed with info about all sorts of things. well worth the 1.99. I had 11 packets of seed. Thanks for the link Geoff.

If I could afford it, yes good idea, I would love someone to come in, design, dig, plant so all I need to do is add and tidy. Got anyone in mind for the job. Probably could get it dome for about 30 grand.

I thought he might have come back and offered me a quote.
