Seed tray outside

Posted: 26/02/2016 at 19:42

In the sun it would cook, so needs to be in shade.

Overnight, much the same temperature as outside.

What are you going to sow?

very leggy Hebe Pascal

Posted: 26/02/2016 at 14:17

I don't think hard pruning but not into old wood is a possiiblity.

I haven't had much success with cutting back leggy hebes, one looked OK for a couple of years, lots of new growth from the base, then snuffed it.

Homebase seeding compost

Posted: 26/02/2016 at 13:57

I find seed compost is generally a bit hard and mix it with some MPC and sand/grit to free it up a bit.

I haven't tried the Homebase version

Why are all my plants doing badly?

Other than primula and auricula, what plants have you got inside. Most hardy plants don't like being inside.

If mine get very crowded they stop flowering. Maybe splitting up would help

Old Sunflower Seeds

If they germinate they'll be healthy plants. If they've been stored cool and dry they should be OK to germinate

Astrantia major 'Ruby Cloud'

The cultivars like 'Ruby Cloud' don't seed reliably true but you should get some nice ones even so. 

agree with Lyn re cold

Fast Growing climber plant

It's Ok unless it gets out of hand and it sounds like yours has

Only the mature (non cliinging) growth of any ivy will get the flowers.


Anyone grow Agapanthus in border

Posted: 22/02/2016 at 23:14

Mine was in the ground for years, I only potted up to get it out of the way of drain digging. I'll plant it out again soon. I think it looked better in the garden but I'm not very good at looking after things in pots. I forget them

Bargain Japanese tree peonies

You don't really need to ask permission to post the pics but it can confuse things if pics of other plants get posted. Especially on ID threads

Tree paeonies are woody by nature. No wood, no flowers. If you want a yellow one that doesn't get woody there's always Molly the Witch

 Paeonia mlokosewitschii
