3.  I was looking at  the pink flowers. I shall have to go and check if my buds look like that. I think it's stopped raining now so I shall need a walk round

Anyone done any gardening today?

1 and 2 might be one of the privets and 3 one of the winter flowering Viburnums, fragrans, bodnantense or similar, I can't tell them apart

It's -20C in the seed bank. Dry is the important thing. Most GC seeds are in foil wrap and won't absorb moisture

The seed bank stores seed for years at very low temperatures.

If they're dry they'll be fine.

fast germination of seeds in propagator

re the aquilegias, you may find they won't germinate in a propagator.

Some seeds need to be germinated cold, it's what happens naturally.

Propagators are for seeds that come from a warmer climate and naturally need more warmth than the garden provides.

plant / weed id please

It's hard to describe a smell Peanuts but anything very pungent when you do the scratch and sniff will give a clue. Also a photo from a different angle might help
