Watching seedlings grow 2016

No pic but I had an exciting germination today. A single paeony seed, given to me two and a half years ago, has germinated.

It's a white herbaceous one

Lovely plant under trees if you have room.I wouldn't be without it

Everything is so much quicker now. The early plant hunters probably took months to get home. Long enough to spot and eliminate problems.

Try not to take it personally aym. Idiotic decisions are made and we all know it. No individual, plant hunter or otherwise, has been accused of anything

too late to get eremurus flowers?

Posted: 02/04/2016 at 14:25

Eremurus are up in leaf, I saw some yesterday, about a foot tall. If you've got them, plant them, they won't improve with keeping. Plant and leave alone, they're not things to be lifted yearly or moved around.

My feeling is that with not much root and not planted yet you won't get flowers this year

They seed themselves once you get them started. Into cracks and steps and look great.

I wouldn't be surprised if Lisa is right

It's something in that family and I don't think any of them have red flowers do they?

I always sow too much stuff Kitty. I even sow seeds from my own plants, those that would divide and give me flowers more quickly

I've used vermiculite this year, I prefer grit really but it's hard to come by round here, all too big. Grit prevents algae better than anything else for slow germinators. 99% of my stuff is hardy, sown fresh and either germinated last autumn or is germinating now. Some things are in those pots for months and moss/algae can be a problem. The aquilegias were sown at new year in the GH

I know little about half hardies and tenders. Cosmos germinate easily and someone gave me those seeds. I think aubrieta is easy as well, I have grown that, though there doesn't appear to be any in the garden now. Overtaken by  weeds probably

The GH is big and provides shelter but isn't heated and the door is always open.

Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

Posted: 01/04/2016 at 23:26

Nope, nothing except put some hardening off babies outside. I've left them out so hoping no frost but they'll probably be OK now if there is.

Got a weekend of gardening lined up so hope nothing gets in my way
