Just had a wander round to find all the insects are on the plants in the sunny sheltered places, ignoring any in shade or breeze

I'd start a new thread bruce, put hydrangea in the thread title and hydrangea growers will help.

That's not me

Found these in a drawer, what are they?

The crocus might be small because they've shrunk with time or because they're one of the smaller species rather than over-large cultivated ones

Saving money by sowing seed

Posted: 19/09/2015 at 10:52

I'll put some thought to it but if you consider all hardy members of ranunculaceae and apiaceae as needing winter chill to germinate, you won't go far wrong.

So that's all the astrantias, aconitum, aquilegia, hellebores, (better fresh), 

I've sown some foxgloves I picked up in the end of season sale, they have germinated and I'll protect them in the cold GH through the worst of winter. 

I really do sow more or less everything as it gets ripe, and leave them outside.

I think the ones in the bag and at the top are crocus but no idea about the shrivelled ones
