I think Bordeline is correct, the seeds are very different.

Large scale Laurel cuttings and propagation

Posted: 31/12/2017 at 12:36

I like Laurel for a very quick growing screening hedge but not on a scale such as this! It doesn’t suit the countryside, I’ve never seen fields and fields of Laurel.  Will look very much out of place.

Buying plants will be cheaper if you're thinking of polytunnels, for 3000 plants, think how big that would have to be to accommodate plants in 8” or so pots. 

I’ve bought plants from here,

very good, and for £600.00 you can buy the lot.  30 to 40p per plant is good. It will cost more than that to buy and have a poly tunnel built. Costs of compost, flower pots, feed etc. You won’t need 5 per metre if you use these. 3 will be plenty.

Phippa Ouch! What have I done to deserve that?  Hey lass have you been atv the Port & Lemon.  Seriously no porblem.  Friends differ at times.  Philppa, Happy New Year to you.  Trust me.  I avoid insulting people and I don't bare grudges.  Best wishes.  Mike. xx

See original post

 Don’t patronise Philippa, by the looks of this post it’s you who’ve been on the port and lemon.  I don’t think there’s a lot of friendship going on between you and some posters. 

As for you avoiding insulting people, what have you been banned for several times in the past? 

Too much nitrogen in a flowerpot

Posted: 30/12/2017 at 15:09

Doesn’t look to me like there’s anything wrong with the plant,  they always lose some leaves, just cut of those couple of yellow ones, it’s a big plant for that small pot so re potting looks like what it needs. 

Valuable opinions requested

The cuttings take very well and quickly if you put them in a glass of water.

I see you’re on to road repairs on lanes now😀 the council came round and resurfaced our road, there’s only two house in the mile and and half stretch, and it wasn’t at all bad. Complete waste of money as there’s pot holes in the main roads here as well. 

Greenhouse lighting

There are a lot of people who think they’ll get an early start by usIng artificial heat and light, try it, you may be lucky if you’ve loads of greenhouse space to keep them In when you pot them on. 

Bedding plants and tomatoes can be sown in March, then they’re just about the right size to plant out end of May begining of June.

NB, we moved here on Dec 21st 2011 and we had pelargoniums in flower on the terrace ( previous owners' )

Right, need to get moving, the sun is shining now.

Catch you all later.

See original post

 I still have an Oak Leaf Pelargonium in flower outside now,  have been covered in snow, I don’t think it will last though, I have taken several cuttings for next year’s tubs.
