Wish list for seed and plant swap

Posted: 14/09/2014 at 15:37

The trick is  wide pots, gritty compost, grit on top. Sprinkle the seeds on top of that. It imitates a gravel path and works well for small seeds.

Larger seeds won't fall though the grit so they have to be sown before the grit goes on

Advice for a newbie, please ...

Hi Mickledore

I don't think I'd plant out anything from a polytunnel at this end of the year, 

 

Watering in Viburnum tinus 'Gwenillian'

A good watering in, then back off a bit. When the rains start for autumn you needn't water again till spring.

You need to loosen the roots a bit before planting if it's got pot bound, it makes it easier for them to get established.

Righto Vic, I'll put some in with them

More ID's for plants in my wildflower border, please.

The top one is an ox-eye daisy, the second one might be as well, before it starts to spread. 

Do the dill like ones smell of dill?

The white flowers look like candytuft but it's not, the leaves are wrong.

Are these damsons or sloes please?

sloes are more than sour, they're so tart they're inedible

I'm posting mine tomorrow, does anyone need any sowing instructions on anything they're asked for?

posting seed

Yes, unless you're sending lots. Then the issue is thickness of envelope and you might need a large letter stamp.

It's 5mm thick, up to 100g and up to A5 envelope for an ordinary stamp

 25mm thick, 750g and up to A4 for large letter stamp.

You can weigh on the kitchen scales but a few packets of seed is unlikely to go over weight.
