Trip to Cambridge University Botanical Garden 11th October

Posted: 27/09/2014 at 18:18

Right, I'll be there.

They're open 10-5 

I can do by 11.45 at a pinch, I can take the car to the next bus stop to avoid the before 9.30am no bus pass rule. I have to drive to a bus stop anyway, no buses where I live.

What time can others make and who's coming?

Talkback: How to sow fresh seed in autumn

Posted: 27/09/2014 at 12:25

Carrie Thomas (Touchwood aquilegias) says cold GH in January for sowing. That works well for me, no failures.

I used to sow them when ripe but they germinate quickly when fresh and then there are young plants to see through winter.

Planting species tulip

Posted: 27/09/2014 at 10:37

Species tulips are the wild ones, before they've been hybridised and bred for the biggest, brightest and best. (Or worst depending how you look at it)

Give me a species every time

Eryngium seeds

Posted: 27/09/2014 at 10:14

Eryngiums germinate well sown now, outside or a cold GH or cold frame. They'll either germi way. That stops the p[rocess.

If you've got plenty you can direct sow. They self seed in my garden but get swamped by weeds
