Box Balls growing in solid clay?

Posted: 05/05/2013 at 15:55

My thoughts are that you need to look after them very carefull until the roots grow into the ground/compost. They will have been grown in heavy clay soil and removed with probable damage to pot up. Box grows in some of my heavier patches of soil as well as the opposite extreme, (I don't have any good soil)

Please anyone grown peony from seed

Hi lucky.

Yes, I do it a lot, Fresh seed is really good, take it out of the pod, sow it in gritty compost, grit on top, Stand it outside somewhere and forget about it til the next spring. If nothing happens, wait til the next spring. It may have formed a root but no a shoot the first year. 

It's the same for bought, older seed but not so quick and reliable.

The fridge is a substitute for the real world in winter.

Lavender seeds won't germinate

2 weeks might be too soon. Perennial plants don't generally germinate as quickly as annuals.

Does anyone rate the little plastic greenhouses or is it a waste of time? I don't have one at the moment but it would open up such possibilities. Would love to grow some soft fruit.


Lots of people seem to use them, I have a very windy garden and would lie awake every night listening for the sound of flapping plastic

Fantastic day so far, sun shining, birds singing, green woodpeckers tapping away nest bulding in a willow. I shall go and weed around 'molly the witch' she's nearly out and the weeds don't improve the picture

There were girls crying on the last day of the last term. I couldn't believe it. I thought everyone hated school. I got on my bike and pedalled away as fast as I could.
