Do you know where your pets are tonight?

no pets now but we used to find loud music in the house drowned the fireworks enough to reduce the effect on the cats

There are some big ones (queens or potential queens?) about now. They like to hibernate in the cleaning rags in OH's workshop. He is not keen on this.

Propagation of Fatsia Japonica and Agapanthus

 Found it

not over-helpful. 

Light, Warm.

I assume that means it needs light to germinate, covering with vermiculite instead of compost or grit will sort that out. 

Windowsill job at this time of year.

If you've got plenty I'd do some now and keep some for spring.

Fatsia japonica will grow from seed. I grew it many years ago. I'll see if I can find my records, they might be difficult to find.

They'll need to be really ripe and black. I used bought seed but own fresh seed is always best as long as it's ripe.

Have a look at this thread re the agapanthus, it's old but recently revived.

As far as I know it can affect any plant, including some shrubs. I don't grow lupins so have no knowledge there 

 

how to save elder and birds whilst getting rid of ivy

Posted: 05/11/2014 at 15:51

Birds won't be nesting now but will be using the ivy as shelter through the winter.

It's a tricky one. You have a first class habitat for wildlife there but I can understand you don't want it if you have a small garden. 

I think I'd do it now, it will give the birds and other creatures time to move on before it gets really cold.
