Protecting Buxus from too much sun

Posted: 26/04/2016 at 16:38

I'm too lazy to grow plants that need that level of support. I'd be looking for something more suitable for the climate

I can't be more specific either Kitty. I don't grow any magnolias

Wildflower seeds

That should do nicely for cornflowers. Sow any poppies direct, they don't like being transplanted. I have done it but it sets them back

It's very cold, cornflower germinate well at this time of year usually. If you're going to re-sow, wait for this extra winter to end,

poppies can be a bit erratic. Mine sow themselves and do it in late summer.

Native wildflowers can all be sown in autumn, outside. It's what they've been doing since before we invented gardens and greenhouses.

I don't think wildflowers can be considered as a group needing poor soil. They all have different needs. There's a wildflower for every soil type. The poor soil thing is probably about growing wildflowers in grass, like a hay meadow. In rich soil the grass will swamp everything but a few toughies.

There are so many different wildflowers with so many different requirements of sowing time, soil and moisture.

You mention cornflowers so I assume and annual mix of some sort. Do you know what was in there?

I've seen plants in GCs where the original plant has died and there's a nice piece of willowherb for sale at £7.99

Plant ID please

Hellebores

your seedlings may be from the mauve 

or a mixture of the two. 

when seeding time comes keep an eye on the seed swap thread. Several of us have put hellebores on there in the past.

one looking closely at the one with no number I think you may have a mixture there. Elder stinks, scratch and sniff the part with the thick brown stems. The green stems are leycesteria.

50 might be a euonymus

the two seedlings 40  look like some sort of poppy and maybe love in a mist
