When will autumn planted lupin show?

Posted: 04/10/2015 at 21:52

If they were fresh seed they'll probably germinate soon. They don't need a cold spell to trigger germination

Maintenance only anyone?

Tasks have to be shared. I can start all the mowers (and the shredder as long as the oil isn't too cold and thick), but can OH tell a weed from a desired plant or know when to prune what? Add to that his dislike of what he calls 'the wrong kind of dirt' (soil or compost) this leaves me with weeding and digging and pruning, OH with mowing and hedging

I don't like 'the wrong kind of dirt' either, but for me that's engine oil and mucky bits of metal. I hate the smell of metal

groupings every time for me but it's about what you'd like to see come flowering time.

Don't forget they won't all flower at the same time.

When will Honesty flower

Hard to say. Those of mine that will flower next year are 5-6 inches inches tall with several large leaves and this year's flowers haven't dropped the seeds yet so no babies

Please can you ID this seed pod / fruit?

Hi gardenmaiden, they've opened. Will be sorting all seeds within the next few days

Sow when you receive them and leave outside. Fresh seed from this one usually germinates in the first spring but leave for a second spring if it doesn't.
