Anyone had success with growing clover ?

Posted: 27/09/2013 at 22:54

Hi ffb,the stringy tobacco is dead petals, the seeds are mini beans and rattle when they land in a collecting tub like a margerine pot.

My lawn - a little grass, lots of clover, moss, cat's ear, selfheal and all other weeds does flower. I have be careful when barefoot, bees don't respond well to being trodden on.

I love it. All those pots lined up, waiting for spring. Astrantia is a good one for autumn sowing and aconitum. 

What is this little plant?

fidget, you amaze me! How do you know all this? Have you and nutcutlet got plant enzyclopedias in your brains?


I might have Sue. There's not much else in there so plenty of room

Kashmir White likes rather better soil as well. Geranium renardii will put up with poor soil but like the sun. G x cantabrigiensis does better in shade and can cope with not very good soil 'Biokovo' is white(ish). The white version of Geranium macrorrhizum isn't as robust as the coloured ones but tolerates the shade. There's a white form of G. phaeum as well, good for shade

Hi Asho. Baptisia and poppies yes, rudbeckia should be OK, not sure about the verbena though. I only sow really hardy plants in autumn and winter. Verbena I'd sow late winter, it will get the required chilling but won't germinate in a warm spell and get frozen

perennials can be cut to the ground but if they're stll upright and looking good they can be decorative in winter with the frost on them
