Thalictrum seeds

Posted: 05/08/2013 at 20:13

i remember now. It does say fresh seed so I'd sow them. Cover them with grit and leave them to get on with it. the grit will stop them growing mould or getting washed out of the pot if they don't germinate til spring. 

i had to be very strict and leave that site. there are some nice things there and I've promised myself a year off baby nuturing.

Do you know that the seeds are fresh? Mine aren't ripe yet, but these are harvested and packed.

too right. Joe. that's a terrifying thought. I think we have to assume two bites though

I've got a good one at the base of my ring finger. Thought I'd have to take the finger to the workshop to get the ring cut off. But it's receding now. Itching still driving me mad though

the one on the notebook looks like one of the willows to me, Salix caprea maybe

walniuts have divided leaves along the lines of an ash.

That second one could do with a better photo if you could, Thig.

A close up of leaves and the trunk. It could be alder,but I'm not convinced.

Agree on the elder and the teasels.

Can't tell my conifers apart except for the pines which it's clearly not
