Maltese Cross seedlings

Posted: 22/12/2016 at 18:19

E.mellifera ia beautiful but not quite hardy enough for some winters here. I had one in the garden for years but the year it went down to -14C was much too cold for it. They're very easy from seed and grow quickly. I have one in the garden and one in a pot now, in their second winter but last winter didn't happen.

I have a salvia self-seeded into a pot containing Euphorbia mellifera. It's in the cold GH so I'll see how it develops. No idea which one it is.

All plants are better in soil than in plastic bags or a box in a shed, there is no time in a plants natural life when it sits exposed on the surface of the ground.


If they're going into pots I'd put them in pots. I'd protect them from extremes of cold and wet.

no heat on the aquilegias, no


Cold GH or coldframe, they germinate OK outdoors, it's what they do naturally.


Re the salvia, not one I know but I had a google and it looks like greggii or a hybrid of. Slightly less than fully hardy here, I wouldn't sow yet.

Honesty needs to be in the garden, it's best sown where you want it to flower. I have grown them in pots and pricked out etc but they didn't like it. The variegated ones snuffed it.


Here Maltese cross dies back in winter, even in a cold GH most years, then grows again from the base so I should think pinching out would be a good plan.


what sort of salvias

Absolutely nothing to do with gardening too too

I tend to use olive oil for everything but it seems to work OK.

I love turmeric, always fry rice in it. Nice yellow colour as well.

i think that green one could be a 'botanical' tulip. Don't know why they're called that. 


I got a bag of reduced mixed ones and some were like that. Several different colours and shapes but all had that little curl at the top.
