Acer palmatum 'Atropurpureum'

Normally I would say sow them in gritty compost in autumn (or when they're ripe) and leave them outside. I don't think we have enough winter left now though so it will have to be the fridge for a couple of months or so.

Someone else may give you better timing advice, I've never done acers in the fridge. But don't wait. Sow

I have over-wintered S. patens Bob but I think I get flowers earlier when I start new from seed. I haven't grown it lately, maybe time I got some more.

Beautiful day, afternoon tea in the garden 

Collected a barrowload of leaves from around the pots of things waiting to be planted. Admired the snowdrops and the growing number of aconites. 

Wondered why February Gold is so called as it's only flowered in February once in the 15 or so years it's been out in the meadow.

2 sorts of daffs out. One is Rijnvelds Early Sensation, the other is very pale and fades even paler after a few days as a cut flower. I don't know what it is.

Not sure I like daffs this early, this is snowdrop time
