Fritillary Seedlings

Posted: 17/04/2014 at 12:08

If they're still green I'd feed them and leave them where they are. They'll die back soon and you can prick them out when they reappear.

I wondered if that was a trick of the camera Dove. I've just been out and looked at the bark of the Ptelia and it's a good match. Maybe hostafan will find the other photo.

There was a nasty smell of aggro-chemicals ion my garden

I couldn't see how it was all going to hold together through the growing time. I shall be interested to hear how you get on hugoandmonica.

Cutting Back Penstemons

Posted: 17/04/2014 at 08:41

That's good Abi. You do it while I just think about it

But I've only got 2 and I've done 1.

I've got a couple of interesting little species penstemons though, they only need the flower stems taken off


How do you all know so much

Posted: 17/04/2014 at 08:37

When it comes down to it I don't know much at all.

I've grown a lot of hardy plants and can recognise them.

I can grow hardy plants  from seed.

My garden is more of a wildlife reserve than a normal garden.

I couldn't run a veg patch or look after tender plants.

and I still can't keep cuttings alive.

I love the way those google search links leak out of the box and drift across the screen

Ptelia trifoliata would be a second choice, or possibly a first choice it it's that small and making seed. The flowers smell lovely

I've never had a seedling from bb but when I moved it it appeared in both sites the next year.

Lyn, it's not clever really, I just like plants and I like to know what they are. And I'm never satisfied with what the GCs and the big companies are throwing my way, I have to get some obscure species and grow it from seed

when do i take root cuttings of Japanese anemones?

Posted: 16/04/2014 at 23:20

I've always done root cuttings as plants go dormant for winter. 

My success rate isn't that great though
