What is it ?

Posted: 04/08/2014 at 18:41

I grew Metasequoia glyptostroboides from seed and it looked very much like that at an early stage.

But don't take that as a definite, It's a while ago now

clematis seeds

Hi Posy, yes they need sowing so that they get a winter chill. You can sow them as soon as they're completely ripe. If you have a fancy cultivar it probably won't seed true, 

Gritty compost, more grit on top, a cold frame is good, no propagator or other forms of heat. It's the cold that will break dormancy

I've seen 3 or 4 moths and 5 caterpillars. A poor showing

 A few years ago every ragwort plant would be covered.

What is this bush with berries?

One of the hypericums. Never tried them for edibility or toxicity.
