Trees from seed

Posted: 24/09/2014 at 12:51

Seeds don't naturally sink themselves 6 inches into soil, they land on the surface. Then they sit out in the weather. I cover hardy tree seeds in a small layer of compost, just enough to surround them, then a layer of grit, then I leave them outside to take what nature would give them. I don't have many failures

Trip to Cambridge University Botanical Garden 11th October

Hi Mike, no, not arranged with anyone though you can book a tour guide.

http://www.botanic.cam.ac.uk/Botanic/Home.aspx

It's open to the public everyday, though possibly not Sundays except for members.

It's within walking distance of where I was brought up, we used to take picnics though that will be frowned upon now I'm sure.

It's certainly not a private trip and you'd be most welcome to join us

It won't affect bulbs  but they will cross pollinate and the offspring will be a mix

Bus pass

I was thinking of train because the station's so close.

but I've got a bus pass. I'll have to look at buses.

I don't even know the rules about where you can go with a bus pass, investigation needed

i dont known what kind of worm is in my soil plant

Posted: 23/09/2014 at 20:03

I've never put soil under the microscope but I've had pond water under. Nematode worms appear 6 inches long and all manner of unidentified animal life drifts by.

Fascinating
