perenial seeds

Posted: 14/08/2014 at 08:36

Hi Snoodle, which perennials are you growing, some need to be chilled to break dormancy. Astrantias, aquilegias, aconitums, clematis, all germinate much more reliably if the have a cold spell.

Lots of other too.

Have a look at this, http://theseedsite.co.uk/   on germination.

Hi DW

I haven't given up on this one yet so I've copied  the last photo to this thread.

Are the stems round or square or smooth or bristly?

And are they hardening off or fleshy or firm and green

There are several plants that have yellow roots, berberis and stinging nettles for two. Not suggesting those as ID though

laurels and fungus

Fungus on stems is rarely a good sign. Have you got a photo?

Have I missed it all or will there be more tonight?

ID please!

Have any of the spireas got anything to offer apart from flowers? I like a good shaped bush or attractive leaves or berries in addition to flowers?

Plants ID please

1 is one of the nightshades, probably Solanum nigrum.

I don't recognise the climber

Asters

Sometimes when you have a mixed packet of something one colour germinates much more quickly or looks stronger than others. So they get pricked out and grown on. The empty looking seed tray with all the ungerminated other colours in it is discarded

cyclamen

Posted: 12/08/2014 at 21:41

I doubt if cyclamen come in plugs. They take a year or two to get to flowering size and are usually found individually in pots. You can grow them from seed easily but it's a bit of a wait for flowers.

Are you looking for Cyclamen hederifloium that's starting now or Cyclamen coum that starts with the snowdrops.

Or maybe the bright coloured ones that are sold for winter pots.? C. persicum. They can usually be found in 6packs at the GCs any time soon
