I find all the digitalis germinate whenever I sow them.
Throw some grit on top of the pots, put them outside somewhere sheltered and ignore them. My over winter seeds are mid germination, still some to go. There are always a few that don't so don't feel despondent
It doesn't look like a salvia to me but I haven't got a better suggestion
I've germinated hostas. I sow everything fresh (if I can get it fresh), when it's ripe on the plant. Never use heat, mostly outside but may have used cold GH for hostas as they're such slug fodder. It's a few years ago now and my memory isn't reliable
No snow but we had one of the sharpest frosts of the winter last night. Ice 1/4'' thick on the birdbath this am.
Missed that one Jimmy
there's a Lonicera Mandarin? or poossibly Madarine
I'd use engineering pricks or those made for paving. Some others are as obelixx says, they can start disintegrating very quickly indeed, one winter.
Do bumble bees live in hives?
There are bees in my garden, I think that's where they need to be. I didn't know you could get bees in packages. Do they come with instructions?
I pronounce as crime but that doesn't mean I'm right
