Why plant daffs in October?

Posted: 29/04/2015 at 12:47

and think about the plant. In nature they stay in the ground, they start maiking new root long before they appear above ground.

Out of the ground from around mid summer til March might not be the kindest treatment or the one most likely to give a good display in future years

problems germinating

Posted: 29/04/2015 at 11:11

I'm getting poor germination on my over-winter cold germinators. I'm blaming too little cold in winter and too much cold in spring.

Still hope but it diminishes

Is there still life in there?

I don't know this conifer but generally speaking a conifer that has gone brown stays brown. (Until the dead leaves drop off then it's a stick).

I'd start again if you want one of these, no way back from there
