artificially triggering germination

Posted: 14/02/2015 at 13:53

I'd sow them in grass now. It may be late but I don't think the fridge will help, they are parasitic or semi parasitic on grass.

Just throw and scratch around a bit. If you only get one or two, as long as you let them seed back into the grass they'll be with you forever.

Are there any advantages of starting sweet peppers off now?

Occasional sunlight isn't good light, you'll end up with etiolated seedlings.

But I think you should do it. The best way to learn is to see what happens as a result of what you do.

plants or shrubs

Is it boggy all the time or does it dry to concrete in the summer?

Can anyone help identify this plant?

The leaves will die back after flowering.

Photos can be deceptive but those holes don't look a foot deep. I'd remove a couple of slabs and make a proper planting hole.  

Is this raised border too small for black bamboo

Posted: 13/02/2015 at 15:24

Aside from invasiveness issues I think a bamboo would look very squashed in and not very attractive there

Can anyone help identify this plant?

If they have a true bulb at the bottom I should think they're muscari,  grape hyacinths

Anyone done any gardening today?

It all counts Janet

Today we cut wild pear, hazel, ash, field maple and something still unidentified  from a Chiltern seeds 'Hardy Trees and Shrubs Mix' at least 20years ago.

Stuffed it all through the shredder, less painful than previous shreddings of blackthorn etc
