Planting out seedlings

Posted: 03/09/2014 at 21:49

Okay, it sounds like I'm going to have to find them somewhere to live over the winter. First I've got to get them all planted up though - trip to garden centre tomorrow

I don't have a coldframe or a greenhouse. Perhaps I should ask the neighbour to borrow theirs? All good advice - thank you

Hi all, 

I have ordered a set of mixed perennials from Thompson & Morgan and they arrived this morning, Each seedling is in a very tiny plug. Please can someone advise me (in detail!) what to do next? There is an information leaflet, but as a beginner gardener, I have some uncertainties. 

It says to plant them up into 9cm pots - is that one per seedling, or do I put a few seedlings into one pot? Then how long do I let them grow indoors before I start hardening them off, and when is the latest I should be actually planting them in the ground? And finally, will they all not just die over winter?! Thanks for any help.

I bought a couple of Clematis Montana plants yesterday and haven't put them in yet - if we're supposed to be having an overnight frost this week should I wait before I put them in?

It's not a sycamore - it's some kind of evergreen with fir cones, and it's not directly under the tree, but the tree does take a lot of water as the lawn under it is always very dry. It may have already been moved when we had the garden done in May (I can't quite remember), so maybe it's just a bit stressed (although it was always the least healthy of the two).

Thank you - will see how it fares over the autumn

I have two camellias in my garden. Both inherited and well established. One is in fab condition - shiny green leaves, loads of flowers. The other is not! Yellowy leaves with some brown patches. They have both had the same treatment (fed with ericaceous feed and some sequestering iron, watered with some tap, some rain water). The unhealthier one is in a sunnier spot and is fairly near to a large tree, so could this be the problem, or is there possibly something else going on? There's no evidence of bugs. I'm a very novice gardener so would really appreciate some tips! Thanks

What to plant under Acer

Okay, that sounds good. I'm not sure I know anyone with any snowdrops. Is it too late to buy them in the green?

Oh! Now that's the first thing I would have done wrong, then. In that case, is there anything I can put down to stop the weeds appearing, or do I just need to keep hoeing it? Bought a new hoe today! Thanks for the reply.
