Couldn't manage the answers, didn't seem to relate to my world. Sorry. Good luck

Mystery sprouting bulbs - can they be moved?

Posted: 10/02/2016 at 13:10

Unless you want to clear the area let them flower there. You can move them as the leaves brown. I have moved bulbs at that stage and sometimes they carry on as if nothing has happened. But sometimes they don't flower

Some sort of narcissi I think

Where is my grass?

Posted: 10/02/2016 at 13:06

I would rather have the benefit of Edd's (and others') personal experience than internet research.

I can do my own searches and the internet is full of replicated error and misidentified flora and fauna.

I have started between autumn and now, aquilegias, Ammi majus, annual delphinium, native scabious, some thalictrums, aconitums and assorted other goodies. But not in a heated propagator. Outside or unheated GH

Waiting for aquilegias to germinate, the rest have. The aquilegias will, they always do

and perennials come in tender and hardy as do annuals

Hardy means they survive outside in our climate

Tender means they don't survive outside in our climate

annuals germinate perform and die in one growing season

Perennial live for years

Biennials germinate one year, flower the next

Hardy plants can be started earlier than tender, they have to come out of the propagator some time and tender ones won't like it cold out there.

Flowers or veg?

I only know about hardy plants
