wild flowers from seed

Posted: 07/01/2014 at 20:16

The poor soil thing is about flowers growing in grass meadows. If the soil is rich the grass goes mad and swamps the flowers.

The flowers themselves will grow in whatever  they get, (taking acid/alkali. wet/dry etc requirements into account)

Shame about the tree paeonies Bob,  they do well on neglect here.

A tree paeony has permanent wood, it's a shrub/tree. Bowl of beauty etc are  herbaceous paeonies and die back to nothing in winter.

Mine seed themselves. I only know how long they take from nut/berry sowings with the kids

Has anyone grown a Cercis Canadensis ?

Same happened to one in a friend's garden. It didn't die but the amount of dead wood spoiled the shape of the tree. It was a shapely 8-10 feet. now just a blob. It was the winter before last that did it. It had been OK for some years

So what did I miss last night? Cut flowers and something. Not bothered about cut flowers  but don't want to miss anything good. I'm always a day or two behind, on the iplayer when I have a broad enough band

No Dove, reference is made in that one to a previous thread. 

You know how we ramble and change the subject, it may not have had a hint of paeony in the thread title
