Indoor Seed Propagator

Posted: 31/08/2014 at 17:23

It depends what you want to use it for. Many perennials and hardy annuals will do just fine on a window sill, or in the conservatory, however if you want to grow more tender stuff then a heated propagator is very useful.

I have a very old one with no thermostat and start of all my tender perennials/annuals in it.

Tree ID and transplanting advice please

Unless they can be dug out with large root balls, having previously had a large slit trench dug all around, with time left for them to develop a new fibrous root system, I think that you are on a hiding to nothing.

I would buy new smaller trees, which will grow quickly, plus you can also choose exactly what you want.

The Lychnis would be lovely, the greyish foliage would work well with the Delphinium flowers.

It is what used to be Eupatorium chocolate, but has now been given a new name which I cant remember, or maybe never knew.

Keep a good look out?

Agree with Buddyboy. Your Rhode does not have Ash die back or Sudden Oak death, but is poorly. Maybe be water, too little or too much, or not in a suitable acidic soil.

White Cosmos, Lupins, if sown now might flower next year, Ammi majus sown late autumn is a pretty, tall, white umbellifer. White Achilleas if sown early may flower first year, and the flat flower heads are a perfect contrast to the spires of the Delpiniums. White Nicotiniana, the list is endless.

Advice needed
