Good Evening FORKERS

Posted: 09/09/2013 at 22:00

Not so many trays and pots, good idea. I grow a lot of perennials, most of which are too small to plant out early and the soil is too hard to plant them out later on. So I'm watering pots of this and that right through til now. I haven't counted them but there must be several hundred. 

Then there are the plants I acquire through thesummer. 
yesterday I went to West Acre gardens/nursery. I got a Bubbleia lindleyana, Persicaria 'Inverleith', a hardy geranium I liked the look of and a Cotinus 'Grace'. I think that was all no, Rudbeckia triloba, which I've lost before.

Hi Gardengirl. I'd promised myself a year without lots of seedlings next year. It's not going well so far. I've seeds already sown, a box labelled sow in january and one labelled sow in spring.

Have you tried Plant World seeds?

 I've had some interesting seeds from them.

Should my honeysuckle look like this

How closely did you look at it Rose lady?

If you expect something to be a honeysuckle it's easy to see one.

You do lose some. I have a list of all (or perhaps most) of the plants I've bought/grown over the years. There are a lot missing

sow them now, leave them outside, they'll germinate in spring. The fresher the better for these seeds and they need the cold. I cover them with grit, Don't do anything to them, the weather waters them.
