Found these in a drawer, what are they?

The crocus might be small because they've shrunk with time or because they're one of the smaller species rather than over-large cultivated ones

Saving money by sowing seed

I'll put some thought to it but if you consider all hardy members of ranunculaceae and apiaceae as needing winter chill to germinate, you won't go far wrong.

So that's all the astrantias, aconitum, aquilegia, hellebores, (better fresh), 

I've sown some foxgloves I picked up in the end of season sale, they have germinated and I'll protect them in the cold GH through the worst of winter. 

I really do sow more or less everything as it gets ripe, and leave them outside.

I think the ones in the bag and at the top are crocus but no idea about the shrivelled ones

It's a good time of year to sow some hardy perennials, the ones that need a chill to break dormancy. I sow every thing that's hardy in autumn, all outside in pots. Some germinate quickly, some already have, others wait til spring. I bring the germinated ones into an unheated GH and all pots in there about February, as much for my benefit as theirs.

The big thing about a GH is that you can get in there with the plants. If it's big enough you can have a seat

I shall circulate my new mobile number in case of need.

Probably tomorrow as I'd have to get off my a..... and fetch the phone to do it now.

Of course I don't know my own niumber. I had the last phone for 12 years and didn't know the number
