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.

Sundays are a bit full this month artjak re the Lynford trip. I think I'll have to let that one go

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

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

I should think you're right re which alliums they are.

I have some alliums in leaf, can't remember which they are, neither of yours

I'd get the foxgloves out of those cells are either in the ground or larger pots. Those should flower next year

There speaks one who has Digitalis ferruginea thoroughly pot bound in 2 litre pots and still not planted out

Hi Matt the ones on the right are the foxgloves

What sort of alliums are they? The leaves look very long and narrow

Rescued this from family garden that's being sold - was it worth keeping?

I think that's a Lysimachia, possibly L. ciliata. It doesn't look quite dark enough for 'Firecracker' but something like that.

Invasive. On my dry soil it never looks much but can be quite attractive
