Cleaning plastic plant labels

Posted: 28/04/2014 at 18:05

I use both sides by which time plastic fatigue has set in and they snap. I slosh them around in a bowl of soapy water before the second use. Mine have a long time in the pots, it's shrubs and perennials I'm growing.

You can't beat fresh seed gg. Lots of those said to need a chill will germinate in days if they just drop to the ground.

Is this a weed?

Euphorbia amygdaloides . Only fit for the wilder parts of a large garden

I'd cut the naked stems make to base and, if it's not too big, move it to somewhere with more shade.

That's good Victoria, so disappointing when nothing happens.

The warm first relates to what happens naturally. It's warm when they set seed, then cold in the winter, then it's warm in the spring and they germinate.Magic

Update on the seeds in my fridge

Paeonia cambessedesii germinated in the fridge and Aquilegia skinneri after about 2 weeks back outside.

That's the only action from my artificial winter so far
