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

astrantia, aquilegia, aconitum, eryngium

The smell only lasts a day or 2
