That gravelly bit is a membrane over some very stiff soil Dove. It used to be where I lined up all the babies in their pots. I've got some purple sage and may have a green one somewhere. 2 rosemary bushes and lots of thyme.


I wouldn't turn down a rooted cutting though if you did find you had spare please.

I've been growing seeds for decades, I have yet to dust a seed with fungicide or anything else.

I wouldn't have though of that one Kitty but not long ago someone posted here and they had got their bays and laurels confused. As you say, there is a resemblance between the Portugal Laurel, (which I call Prunus lusitanicus so I won't be confused) and Laurus nobilis (which I call bay when I need a jar of leaves from the SM). 


I have a huge bay bush and I buy dried bay leaves

If it is bay, Laurus nobilis, it will make no difference which cultivar it is.


A confusion of names exists between


Laurus noblis, aka bay is also known as Bay Laurel


Prunus laurocerasus, known as laurel, is poisonous

Do you think fortuneii or japonicus, Posy?

Aquelegia seedlings

I used to sow them late summer autumn and then had babies to deal with all winter. 


Carrie Thomas, Touchwood, suggested sowing in a cold GH in January when I ordered seed. This has worked well for me since then.
