Trees from seed

The fridge is an alternative to standing them out for the winter. I think outside is better. Fridge temperature is above freezing point, outside is often lower than that. Variable temperature is what happens in nature. Plants evolve to survive the climate they're in

It's been very dry for September, have they had enough water?

 

What plant is this please?

Some look as though some are coming up to flower, that will help.

Do the leaves smell of anything?

Seeds don't naturally sink themselves 6 inches into soil, they land on the surface. Then they sit out in the weather. I cover hardy tree seeds in a small layer of compost, just enough to surround them, then a layer of grit, then I leave them outside to take what nature would give them. I don't have many failures

Trip to Cambridge University Botanical Garden 11th October

Hi Mike, no, not arranged with anyone though you can book a tour guide.

http://www.botanic.cam.ac.uk/Botanic/Home.aspx

It's open to the public everyday, though possibly not Sundays except for members.

It's within walking distance of where I was brought up, we used to take picnics though that will be frowned upon now I'm sure.

It's certainly not a private trip and you'd be most welcome to join us

It won't affect bulbs  but they will cross pollinate and the offspring will be a mix
