Seed swap

Posted: 17/01/2014 at 22:42

Gardengirl, there's some aquilegias. Some corncockle and other natives that flowersforbees sent me and I was sure I'd sown those. 

Thinking about it, there were plenty and I may have sown half. Maybe that's why I thought Id sown a lot of these. Because I have.

2 species of eryngium. Half a packet called 'Mixed nicked' which came from a forum member who doesn't post now. Several packets of free wildflowers.

I'd better get on with it.

I keep losing my text tonite and I'm not such a good typist I can do it twice.

Am I an expert Ryan? you're very kind to say so, though maybe not accurate

There must be 20 packets of various seeds that should be out there, some I thought I'd sown in the autumn. Probably dementia setting in.

Did you get your compost delivered? I've never done that, always assumed delivery costs would be huge and my car was chosen for its compost and plant carrying abilities.

I'm going off armandii. It's wonderful went it's good but mine gets wind/cold damaged and big lumps die off. They're right up in the top of a tree and I can't get them out

I just had a look through the collection. Quite a lot need to be sown now. Seed compost needs to be bought.  Help. I'm getting left behind already. I usually do this in the first week of January.

Sow the wildflowers Tracey, lots of them need to be cold before they germinate and the rest won't mind. Native wildflowers and their seeds belong outside in our climate

WW my sort of seed is fine to sow now. All those hardy plants need a chill to break the dormancy. I wonder if they'll get a good chill this year.

I don't think what we've got now is that unusual. Warm, wet, westerly winds in winter. That's what we get

I must look through my seeds. I did the early sow but I haven't looked at the january sow yet. It will be February soon.

I bring the seedlings into the cold greenhouse when they germinate higgy. I've never lost them yet. Sometimes my sow in autumn, germinate in spring gets out of sync and I have babies to see through winter

Suits me, I don't like all that white stuff.

We've only had 2 proper frosts where it says frozen all day in the shade. 

Except for the wet and windy time I've been able to  play outside most days
