How to protect seeds sown now

Posted: 08/09/2016 at 10:02

You don't need to protect them from the winter. They're hardy plants.


I hope they're large pots,  Vipers Bugloss is very leafy at the base and tales up a lot of space.

whatever the cause, it's never going to turn into a well-shaped tree now. The brown bits won't leaf up again. I wouldn't keep it.

Primula and aquilegia, outside somewhere cool. Not in the GH at all, they don't need covering. Honesty is best sown direct. If you haven't got enough to just sling around where you want them to flower I'll add some to your collection. They don't respond well to pricking out etc. Best to start where they're going to flower.


At this time of year I sow everything in pots of gritty compost, sling some more grit on top and leave them outside in a shady place. I bring a lot of them into the cold GH about midwinter when the GH won't get hot at all. Probably more for my benefit that the seeds'

Hard to judge scale but probably Potentilla reptans, creeping cinquefoil.  Very long tough roots.

what are you wanting to grow GD?

Can anyone tell me what this plant is?

I see the Datura stramonium as fidget says and the blue one (upside down) is Nicandra physaloides, shoofly plant.

Young Silver Birch bark damage

The missing layer is at least half way round the tree, that's serious. This is likely to have been physical damage, rabbit as Ladybird suggests or another offender is the strimmer or other garden tool. I feel there's little hope for the survival of this tree and no hope at all of it ever making a decent specimen.

I'd stick with your 'holes in leaf' thread for this one mark. I've seen this mentioned before so someone knows, not me though, sorry.
