someone gave me some seed heads of a euphorbia and I put them in my shirt pocket. They were exploding all the way home. Odd sensation

Mould in seed pan (viburnum)

Have a look on the germination page here.

Astrantia is a cold germinater, outside or cold greenhouse. No heat. They'll germinate in the spring. It's what happens naturally. don't do anything to them other than sow them and put some grit on top. Come feb or March you can bring them in for your benefit so you can see when they germinate. 

Done like that is pretty reliable

They're  wild somewhere in the world.

I remember those now from my childhood, thought it looked familiar

not a rhodo, you wouldn't get that to flower in a season. It will be an annual.

When to plant seeds

Posted: 13/09/2013 at 10:52

I used to sow aquilegias outside as soon as ripe, it's what they do themselves as flowering rose says. With bought seed I now sow them in a cold GH in january. They get the required chill but I don't get any germinating in autumn and have to look after  them through the winter. 1005 germination using this method this year.

I don't grow delphiniums but I have been told this works for them as well. They are Ranunculaceae and lots  of that family need a winter sow. Some need a fresh sow but I can't see that working for delphiniums
