I wonder how the lower forms of animal life, all those essential organisms that are part of the ecosystem in your gardens, will enjoys being doused with vinegar.

Agapanthus seed germination help please?

Posted: 06/12/2016 at 19:03

Hi Birdy, that's nearly fresh. I don't know how fresh they need to be, the only ones I ever did were straight off the plant and into the pot. I have to admit it's a while ago and I can't remember when they germinated.

The search on here doesn't really work,  but in a thread some years ago I posted a link to a youtube video which I can't find now. Someone from one of the big posh gardens sowed them really fresh and left them over winter, under cover but not heated if I remember correctly

I think you may be wasting your time. It's generally recommended that agapanthus seeds are sown fresh.

Worth leaving them a bit longer but I wouldn't waste propagator space on them. When fresh they germinate in the garden, no propagator needed

Veggies that are good for senior citizen

the Brits traditionally boiled their veg to death with another half hour to make sure but I think that generation has gone. 

Many years ago when I was a district nurse (that dates it ) I'd visit a couple of patients at 9am and the veg would be on for lunch.

definitely forget the laurel. Not only is it poisonous, though I doubt if anything would eat it, it's also an ugly thug and not native.

Holly is quickish once it gets going. The green ones are quicker than the variegated garden ones
