Collecting and Saving Seed.

Posted: 07/07/2014 at 18:01

It was clear to me Philippa. and true. Each seed doesn't ripen at exactly the same time and by the time a head is completely ripe some have been ripe for a while, and some may have already dropped.

Can you name this plant please

Oilseed rape?

Did it have yellow flowers?

I dunno Pauline. But I can't either. Haven't been able to for some time now

If the roses don't germinate I should be able to collect seed from some of mine this year. I think what you had were the remains of a large packet from Chiltern seeds. I find they often flower first year from seed if you start them in the autumn.

I'd pot them up unless your soil is very kind. They'd never get a hold in my soil at this time of year

I agree with Dave. Try general TLC every time before you get the sprays out

Hi Gardengirl, they aren't roses, they're something much softer. If not corydalis maybe thalictrum?

Rose seedlings are obviously shrubs right from the start and the base starts to get woody early on.

Gardengirl, those seedlings in the pot look more like a corydalis than a rose. I'll check on the old PMs and see if I can work out what I sent you.

I've looked and they don't do back far enough.

Weed or plant!?

Why do perennials die?

Posted: 07/07/2014 at 15:19

Don't throw away a plant because it hasn't flowered.

But if there are no leaves at this time of year it's dead.

We all lose things, don't be disheartened.
