Buld flower seeds

Posted: 14/04/2014 at 10:12

I'm here,

You need to wait til it's totally ready to fly. Then grab it. You could put a paper bag over the head to catch it (not polythene) Sow some straight away, it might germinate very quickly when fresh. or dry and save and sow outside in autumn and it will germinate in spring. Some gritty compost in pots and cover with grit. Don't sow too early in autumn or it may still germinate quickly then you have babies to see through the winter.

It will be a year or two before you get flowers. They're corms. Corms and bulbs always take a few years to get to flowering size.

I should say that this is extrapolating from other anemones, I've never grown de caen

Can anyone identify this tree?

You can try but they're usually grafted.

Nice single flowers, you should get some cherries (edible or not) let some ripen and you can grow from seed

i don't need to sound silly but...

Plenty there cotty. You can prick those out now. I'm very lazy and never prick out grass down to singles. 

Which ones are those?

My feeling is not fireblight but they look pretty rough and I would probably get rid of them if they were mine

It's Herb Robert. Geranium robertianum. Annual, easy to pull out. 

I like them, I always allow a few to stay

There's no photo Sara but anything with blossom isn't a birch, they have little catkins

Rhubarb & growing from seed

Posted: 13/04/2014 at 18:57

If you've got a good rhubarb I'd go for division. seedlings will be different, might be inferior.

What you say about the plant's energy is true and what danmvalverde says is also true. 

You just have to decide
