The photo hasn't loaded properly maya and I'd love to see it. Start with the camera icon and don't try and upload too large a photo. I reduce mine to 30% from the size the camera and the phone produce.

astroturf might be an option, very good for non-gardeners that want it green.


Some of those nice plastic box balls round the edge. Job done.

I'll stick with my worms. Fortunately more people are coming round to the idea that there's no future in killing everything that doesn't fit in with our plans. Glad to hear this one is coming of the market. It's a good start.

They are pretty, woodland species I think, it's always amongst trees and shrubs that I see them, never in the open meadow

Am I just being impatient?

aqilegias and hellebores are cold gerninators, sown when ripe for hellebores and same for aquilegias or in mid-winter. Never in the warmth of the house, outside or cold GH.


Always worth thinking about what happens in nature. Seeds ripen through summer, then drop onto the ground. Some germinate first time it rains


Others sit all winter getting cold, then not so cold, then wet etc. And germinate in spring. Especially those plants in the ranunculaeae family and the apiaceae.

Yes it will at this time of year, just as the ground does when the seed fall on it. It doesn't matter, the cycle of wet/dry/ cold/not so cold through the winter breaks the dormancy

I don't do anything except slug pick occasionally from sowing time to germination time, they don't need watering before they germinate, the weather does that. You're copying nature, nothing artificial
