Gerbera seeds

Posted: 26/08/2016 at 21:26

I think Gerbera seeds are quite complicated to grow.

Try looking on the RHS site, they will have information.

Bloody Banks. Just drove into town, to pay a cheque in, branch closed down. Thought no problem, drove another 6 miles, Bank has Thursday closing.

What is this

Yes, I think so to Hosta. Mine don't seem to survive winter, so I sow a fresh batch each year.

Depends how big each plant is. IF small, I would group them, suitably spaced, so they grow to become a good clump.

I have been using Jacks Magic for a few years now, it seems to be the best I have found.

Hi all.

Big thunder storm kept me awake, but it is now much less muggy, more rain due today.

Going to start choosing next years seeds today, initial list always includes about twice as many as I will have space to germinate, then hopefully get down to a reasonable number. Always choose a few new ones every year.

Have a good day.

What seed are you sowing now ?

Fresh Angelica seeds, and Lychnis Vesuvius, were sown yesterday.

Japanese Anemone propagation

Still depends on how big they are. I have seen Japanese Anemones grow large plants within a year, perfectly ready for division.
