Hi Bekkie

Are there seeds that don't like very cold storage?

Posted: 05/02/2015 at 13:56

It's -20C in the seed bank. Dry is the important thing. Most GC seeds are in foil wrap and won't absorb moisture

The seed bank stores seed for years at very low temperatures.

If they're dry they'll be fine.

fast germination of seeds in propagator

re the aquilegias, you may find they won't germinate in a propagator.

Some seeds need to be germinated cold, it's what happens naturally.

Propagators are for seeds that come from a warmer climate and naturally need more warmth than the garden provides.

It's hard to describe a smell Peanuts but anything very pungent when you do the scratch and sniff will give a clue. Also a photo from a different angle might help

Hi Minos, intertwining hawthorn would be very painful but perhaps that's not what he meant

I don't think you'd have a problem with willow roots if you kept it back to hedge size but there is a but. Either you cut it back every year to get those whippy growth and weave them in. Or you don't cut it back and those intertwined branches get thicker and thicker and eventually look rather solid and lacking the bright colours of young growth.
