Sowing seeds

Posted: 29/02/2016 at 10:00

If I self sowed em I'd never see them again.

I do have hundreds of them all over the garden but wanted to try the seeds for fun,as Hortico says,  I think perhaps they are best grown straight out of the plants, not kept until winter.

Don't worry Hosta, it was just a try really. 

The tall ones  you gave me are shooting up now.

If you seed the garden you have to hope it rains and then hope even more that the slugs don't eat them.

Hosta, you can't stowaway in her suitcase

Anyone else strapped for space?

To early here in Devon to sow annuals yet, the only ones I have sown are the ones that need a cold spell.

its not bringing on the seeds, it's what are you going to do with them afterwards, you can't plant out till May at least,  by then they will all be in 5 or 6 inch flower pots! you must have loads of space to keep 100+ of all your different varieties.

Aym  has already put them in 7" pots! Don't think she can pot on any more.

I use it on my fuchsias in pots, it does work very well, definitely not on strawberries I wouldn't want to eat it.

they don't fly, but boy can they walk miles!  They all lay eggs as well, no male or females.

Are the 'experts'  who are selling these tiny plants T&M by any chance?

i am not sure you will get very good advise from them. Could be wrong though, but I think they are very expensive for what they are.

Bit too early there Dickie, try again at the end of March, they'll be ok then.

I am not sure it's even going to be warm enough to grow them here at all, I used to see them when I lived in London.

I live in a wild windy exposed place, can't grow them at all, the only one that does any good at all is in full sun. incidentally they weren't free, our garden centre has little beauties for sale at one pound each. 

You will see how they turn out, after you've kept them for a year or two, have you got a greenhouse or conservatory to keep them in.

I used to have one similar, donkeys years ago, that was a real bargain, I love it too.
