Seed and plant swap 2015

Posted: 08/11/2015 at 14:37

Yes please Victoria. I used to grow this but lost it. Too dry here really but I'll do my best with it. I grew the original from seed, over-winter chill needed but reliable

Might have been Lyn. My memory is (always has been) poor. I always write down who I'm sending seeds/plants to but often forget who sent them to me. 

They've done very well, I've got some pink on their own so hope to keep them going, white won't look right where they are

I've had nothing except white and that bright magenta pink hollie. 

Did the seed germinate?

Was it you that sent me the pink seed?

I find the white dominates for me. I started off with both and gradually lost all the bright pink. The seed swap came to my rescue with more pink which I shall look after more carefully now. Not so keen on the white

anything, old envelopes are good. Polythene/plastic very bad, keep moisture in and they either germinate, which is OK if you notice, or rot.

Dry seeds completely and store them in paper bags to stop that happening

I favour sowing seeds rather than storing them

Spring bulbs sprout up

They're hardy, they don't need protection. They start growing when the weather is right, slow down if it gets cold and flower when they're ready. No problem

They've arrived, thank you addict. Enough to sow some now and some in spring

We've only just finished cutting some of ours, it looks a bit of a mess. Ideally we like to cut before it gets saturated.

I'd cut that but see what others think.
