Am I a sillee billee?

Delphinium, Verbena (bonariensis?) rudbeckias and echinaceas can be sown in a cold GH or frame now, They do well with a bit of a chill to get them started. They don't need heat. Sow them in pots and top the pots with some grit to keep the moisture in. Keep the slugs off, especially the delphiniums.

I think echinaceas might need light, ie surface sow them, but I may be wrong there.

The nigella can be sown directly into the ground in  a couple of months.

My MIL gave me loads of loose seeds year ago, all the ones that had escaped into the box she kept them in. Some were very old, lots of different ones. All I germinated was hundreds of radishes.

I still haven't sown my 'sow in January' collection for this year, or been out and bought the seed compost..

Sorry garjobo, I didn't mean it to come across as sarky. Just concerned as electricity is dangerous stuff especially outside

Hi Susan

It is self fertile. I wonder if its habit of flowering one year and fruiting the next is the problem. It evolved in a warmer climate than ours.

Compost for sowing seeds

I don't exactly make it but as I find JI seed a bit 'solid' I add some multipurpose and some fine grit. That makes it just as I like it
