Greenhouse and cold frame?

Posted: 10/10/2016 at 09:36

The advantage of a cold frame is that you can take its lid off to harden stuff off. With the GH you have to keep taking plants out and putting them back at night.

what are the ends of the fruits like?

Is it your tree? can you cut open a fruit and see what's inside?

I wonder about one of the species apples. Malus baccata maybe. Tiny fruit but recognisably apple if you bite one

nice big ones, good flowers next year. Don't forget to let them seed, they're biennial.

Plant ID please

It's a cyclamen. Once it flowers it will seed around and you could get a good patch. I think it's Cyclamen hederifloium

great idea, I wouldn't deep dig, just loosen the surface a bit and sow like you would grass seed. All native plants can take an autumn sowing, if they couldn't they'd have died out.

Most native plants respond well to autumn sowing, in nature the seed is set in summer and autumn, some plants germinate quickly before winter, others wait til spring.

What sort of meadow are you thinking of, perennial with grass or annual? Native or non-native?

Horseshoe vetch is a chalkland plant I think, is that what you have?
