A home-made fungicide

Posted: 16/12/2016 at 13:51

If you want to germinate the seeds aym, read punkdoc's last sentence, that says it all.


Where do they grow naturally?


What time of year do they set seed and what is the temperature when they do?


what is the soil like where they come from?


How much rainfall is there and when?


That's what's important, not fungicide and chamomile and cinnamon or anything else from the spice rack

Has anybody sown Pulsatilla vulgaris seeds successfully?

Yes, I'd love to have the Barnack soil Dove. It's stodgy stuff over gravel over clay here. Plus the years of dumping of anything and everything.

this thread started in June. Must have got lost somewhere.


Those flamingos aren't very tough, they can't deal with dry or hot sun. Not enough chlorophyll for health. Those in pots suffer most

That gravelly bit is a membrane over some very stiff soil Dove. It used to be where I lined up all the babies in their pots. I've got some purple sage and may have a green one somewhere. 2 rosemary bushes and lots of thyme.


I wouldn't turn down a rooted cutting though if you did find you had spare please.

I've been growing seeds for decades, I have yet to dust a seed with fungicide or anything else.

I wouldn't have though of that one Kitty but not long ago someone posted here and they had got their bays and laurels confused. As you say, there is a resemblance between the Portugal Laurel, (which I call Prunus lusitanicus so I won't be confused) and Laurus nobilis (which I call bay when I need a jar of leaves from the SM). 


I have a huge bay bush and I buy dried bay leaves
