digitalis from seed

Posted: 09/06/2016 at 14:20

Digitalis need light, don't cover them. I've germinated them from spring and autumn sowings, no heat.


Your post reminds me that however many I may have germinated in the past, there are none to be seen in the garden now

easy and fast growing perennials from seed?

Posted: 09/06/2016 at 14:13

A lot of perennials will flower late in the first season if you sow them early but they won't now. It's a good time to sow perennials though. They'll flower next year. I used Chiltern Seeds to build up my collection, they list the quick flowering ones

Then, for later on, they have some much more interesting  seeds

Any help with ID of this please?

I'm sorry but nothing will regrow, they don't have resting buds waiting to take over from dead bit like a lot of deciduous trees. What's brown now will stay brown.

MINE ARE RATHER WEEDY SPECIMENS. PRETTY IN THEIR WAY BUT NOT DISPLAY PLANTS.

When to prune Solanum dulcamara (Woody Nightshade)

Solanum dulcamara? I wouldn't have thought the flowers of that would make much of a show.


Would like to see a photo.

But Helen Yemm makes a good point.


'Halliana' is a cultivar of L. japonica, I would have described it as semi-evergreen, depends on the winter. It might be different in other areas
