9cm plant - how to deal with it

Posted: 18/05/2015 at 12:51

I would pot it on and plant it out when it's a bit bigger. Keep it in a shady spot where you can keep an eye on it and water as required

Planting wild flowers in a previously heavy weeded area?

The idea that all wildflowers need nutrient poor soil is a myth. Some might do well on it but they're just plants, all with different needs.

I use pots and plant out when they're big enough.

I've no experience of sending or receiving germinated seeds by post though I know this is done.

What type of wild flowers are you trying to grow?

Sowing seed into such a weed-ridden area is not going to be very successful, I'd pot grow and transplant when they're big enough to compete but annuals are usually best direct sown. Not and easy choice. 

Annual weeds are best hand pulled or hoed before they seed. Deep rooted perennials, glyphosated. Don't cover glyphosated weeds.

In the corner formed by the goosegrass and the alkanet

Don't be embarrassed to show your weeds. If I was better with a camera I could show you more than that
