That's true Wills

You're right Wills.

It's us odd plant growers that need the others.

Plants and people odd maybe

 cowslip it gave us days of  'something to keep us out of mischief' while the snow fell (for some).

It hasn't snowed here and I'm still out with the saws/loppers/shredder

Rowan tree issue??

I don't think I would bother trying to save it. S. hupehensis isn't the most robust grower in my experience and one that only has half its circumference of bark (maybe less, we can't see the back) is never going to be the splendid berry bearing specimen you hoped for.

Anyone done any gardening today?

I brushed the water out of the drip pool ahead of the expected frost, checked to see if any of the stratifying seeds had germinated, prepared the next instalment of seeds for sowing and went to an HPS meeting.

Seed Dormancy

The 2 peas might like a scarify and soak but I haven't grown either of these 2 and am only comparing with others of the same family

Paulownia won't need a chill but won't want to be buried deeply as it needs light to germinate.

Juniper is one that has deep dormancy. Ideally you would have sown that fresh while weather was still warm, then left it out for a chill. I'd sow it now and leave it outside and just wait
