I agree, I've no experience of this one but hardy plants hate indoors.

Some rain Verdun? we had lots. Quite needed but things have collapsed under the weight. I've sorted out all my collected and received seed this morning. Nut and seed roast in the oven to feeze later. Just hope I haven't got any of the ingredients mixed up.

Sun's out now and I'm going to sow the roscoea seeds I've been sent through the seed share

It does look like something in that family. Can we havea look at the leaves and the whole plant terry (please)

Surfinia - cuttings or collect seeds?

Posted: 25/08/2013 at 12:01

You may disagree John and you may have got some lovely plants but they're not 'Surfinia' unless they've been grown as cuttings from 'Surfinia'.

If it seeds at all it doesn't seed totally true. As time goes on you'll get more seeds and further away from 'Surfinia'. But while you've got nice plants, maybe nicer than surfinia, I wouldn't worry about it.

It was a very long, cold, wet winter for newly planted trees to deal with.

I had a slice of beetroot cake from a friend. It was OK but I didn't ask for the recipe

Hi gang. Mine are ready to roll but yesterday evening I found this on a youtube wander

Which telly watchers will probably have seen but is worth a view if you're interested in the science of seeds and gardening in general.

Seems my honesty might have been better left in the pods even if everything is browned off. I'll post them anyway. There's more out there and I can do some pod collection and distribution a later time
