Shrub Identification & evergreen climber recommendations!

It is lovely when in flower but not much to offer for the rest of the year. Not well shaped or wonderful leaves. I'd choose something that flowers in a different season.

3.  I was looking at  the pink flowers. I shall have to go and check if my buds look like that. I think it's stopped raining now so I shall need a walk round

Anyone done any gardening today?

It's stopped raining now but very soggy so probably only a wander round for me

1 and 2 might be one of the privets and 3 one of the winter flowering Viburnums, fragrans, bodnantense or similar, I can't tell them apart

Are there seeds that don't like very cold storage?

Hi Bekkie

Are there seeds that don't like very cold storage?

It's -20C in the seed bank. Dry is the important thing. Most GC seeds are in foil wrap and won't absorb moisture

The seed bank stores seed for years at very low temperatures.

If they're dry they'll be fine.

fast germination of seeds in propagator

re the aquilegias, you may find they won't germinate in a propagator.

Some seeds need to be germinated cold, it's what happens naturally.

Propagators are for seeds that come from a warmer climate and naturally need more warmth than the garden provides.
