Help! Astrantia by seed

Posted: 02/10/2017 at 22:24

I set astrantia in autumn, outside. I generally bring the overwintering seed pots into the cold GH around February. this might be more for my benefit than theirs. I also bring things in when they germinate, no heat, just shelter from the worst of the wet and pecking birds.


verbena about February in the cold GH


I use gritty compost and some more grit on top of the seeds, it stops them getting washed out or growing mould/algae/other undesirables

Japanese Knotweed?


no, that's not a shrub, it dies back every year.


I don't recognise your shrub from that photo, it's had a haircut which masks the natural appearance.
