Hi Hilary. They are annuals, they flower and then die within the season but the season can be any time.

They're nearly hardy, in a mildish winter like last year they survive outside. I have rescued a few seedlings and put them in a cold GH

I'd do it now before the ground gets cold. It's already wet so ideal time

I agree with Dave, bung 'em in


B******* Magpies

I doubt if it's all down to magpies. Look at the wider area. Changes in local environment, hedge removal, extra feeders in other gardens, more cats

Is it too cold to do hedge cutting?

I've just done my hawthorn/hazel/wayfaring tree/spindle/buckthorn and all the rest hedge Verdun. But perhaps that's not a hedge in the full sense of the word. Spring gets me into birds nesting season.

I did some laurel as well, with a bit of luck that might kill it. I've gone off laurel

They won't take over, they'll have a short season and you won't see them till next year.

You did Fishy

I don't like amaryllis, I'd leave up there

You clean the tops of cupboards as often as i do Fishy

More often probably

Primula - growing from seed

This is a useful site for how to germinate what. Look under germination and it's all alphabetical.

I haven't found primulas need any cover, they do OK outside but I don't know which ones you've got.
