Self collected seed not germinating

Posted: 20/02/2016 at 08:12

Neither of the seeds you mention need heat to germinate. Cold GH is good, or outside for the aquilegias. Hardy perennials never need heat to germinate. Heat will prevent some of them from germinating. Aquilegias and delphiniums are Ranunculaceae, many of that family need cold and fresh seed is always best.

Sown fresh, aquilegias germinate before winter. Sown cold in January they germinate in spring

Don't judge sand by its colour. It varies from one gravel pit to another. Texture is what counts.

Viburnum Opulus Cranberry Bush

Wiki says they're edible. 

They're not cranberries so are unlikely to taste like cranberries

spring cleaning the house?

That's a step too far for me. I hate housework

I love the lighter evenings. 

I'm having spring already, a few frost won't stop that

Viburnum tinus not flowering

Posted: 18/02/2016 at 20:31

V.tinus is a big plant. I don't know how well it flowers in a pot. It might be difficult to keep it pruned to a small size and still get flowers.

Does it look OK


Please name the cultivar

Ah, that's good Dove, I was right then

Aym, hellebores don't really have separate male and female plants. They have male and female bits and pieces in all flowers.

Please name the cultivar

Not  accurate botany speak.

Mummy produced the seeds which grew your plants, the unknown must be daddy

What is feasting on my Clematis Armanii please?

I can't see clearly, it blurs when I enlarge it. Are you sure it's not frost damage? New growth and flower buds very susceptible.
