Are you thinking of leaving the seedling pots standing in water?

I water from the bottom but I put the pots in shallow water and take them out when the compost is damp enough, it only takes a few seconds or minutes depending on how dry they are. I assess this by weight.

I've always gone for 'interesting' plants Vic. 

Anything in a seed catalogue I've never heard of, if it's hardy and not a lime hater, I'll have a go.

Fishy, except for the Ribes, all those plants are Boraginaceae, a good bee family.

Trachystemon is great ground cover in deciduous shade.

Dunno Dave, a lot of the sticks you see in the pic aren't part of the forsythia. There's no room for it where it is, I took some cuttings in autumn and I think they're OK so I'll start another one and take this one out.

I bought it from a roadside stall and have never known which one it is.

Do you think this is Forsythia suspensa?

It's quite pale, flowers much less close together than the usual bright yellow ones and long arching branches

 Nonea lutea

 assorted pulmonarias, this one is P. rubra

 Ribes laurifolium, I haven't got this one in the ground yet

 Trachystemon orientalis

There must be bees in the photos somewhere, they were there when I pointed the camera.
