Unless it's defective this is a monocot CB. Primroses have a pair of seed leaves to start and then develop little true leaves that look like that.

Anyone done any gardening today?

A real March day. Blustery but lots of clearing done

It was the mention of Richard Trotter of Brin that caught my eye, maybe one of his?

A swap for what?

Your singles and doubles in exchange for the fancy ones?

Hmm, not true in my pots Edd

Just the one as opposed to a pair of seed leaves blairs?

Did you see this on your other thread James. 

Bindweed Roots

If you want to use weedkiller you'll have to let them develop leaves. Quite a lot of leaves if the weedkiller is to be effective.

There isn't an easy answer to bindweed but with an otherwise empty garden you stand more chance than most of us. But make sure it is empty, gardens can look empty at this time of year then everything starts growing at once

True about the predation blairs. I've been lucky, only suffered once. It was the year I'd made an effort to mouse-proof. I think it alerted the rodents to the presence of berries.

A lot of instructions  say warm first. In nature the trees shed seed in autumn, before the cold starts, then get cold, then warm again in spring.

I use nature to stratify seeds. Sown outside in autumn the seeds are fresher than kept til spring and put in the fridge which makes no sense at all to me. Freshness is more important for some than others.

My seeds germinating now from autumn sowing.
