Garden tattoos? Or generally cool and interesting tattoos?

Posted: 27/05/2014 at 19:38

I've always been too much of a wimp to consider a tattoo.

I wonder where I got information before the internet.

If I want to grow something, the info's there. What soil, hardy, the lot. 

If I can't work it out I ask on here. Magic.

Aquilegia Kew seed collection - sweet rainbows

Posted: 27/05/2014 at 18:51

They don't need heat. They do well with a chill but not everyone does that so I assume it's not essential.

Carrie Thomas from  Touchwood aquilegias advised January in a cold GH when I got my last order from her. I cover them with grit, water and ignore til they germinate. The grit stops them drying out

Outside is Ok but there's the danger of washout and birds scrabbling in the compost.

I either sow them straight away or about mid winter. I got caught once or twice sowing in autumn, they germinated very quickly and I had babies to keep though long cold winters (not last winter)

The alternative is to let it get really dry (not likely this year so far). The compost shrinks and it comes out easily. Might not be too good for the plant though, I haven't tried it with fatsia

Neatness.....a swear word in the garden?

I've just been for a walk round in the rain. no neatness to be seen, lots of weeds and totally lovely.
