Nicotiana affinis seedlings

Posted: 21/03/2016 at 19:20

I find this year's seedlings flower before the ones that are perennial Edd. Just like some of the salvias, eg patens.

Not as huge as N, sylvestris  affinis more reliable for me. The evening scent, fantastic

Yes, beautiful

Too late to cut back cornus Alba aurea?

yes, stick it it the ground and cut it right back

Maybe in the reverse order

They've been indoors Edd.

N. affinis are almost hardy, mine came through 14/15 winter and I expect to see them this year. But not at this stage of growth.

You'll have to ask Dove about the sulking of that one aym but I don't think so.

as Fairy says the idea that you can't move paeonies is a factoid.

Just like 'wild flowers need poor soil' and 'you can tell the age of a hedge by the number of species in it'. Everyone knows it, but it's not true.

I think I'd get those into individual pots now, keep them where they are until they've settled in and then start hardening off

Biggest problem might be extracting it from the conifer roots

Having watched OH's feet splatting stuff while wielding the chain saw I know there's no choice here

I think you'll be OK at that stage of growth. I dug up a Molly the Witch is a far more a advanced state than that a few years ago. Stuck in  pot, How long did it stay in a pot Dove?

As far as I know she is quite happy in her new home

As Logan ans fidget say, as much root with soil as you can manage, don't skimp on pot size if it needs to stay in a pot for a while
