Bird of paradise seeds

hi,

has anyone tried to grow this from seeds? A friend of mine brought me two seeds from Tenerife. the little info i have found indicates that I should soak the seed for some days but then the advice forks. Some say I should then keep it in the fridge whilst others to plant it. 

the seeds didn't come with instructions.

Weed or not a weed

The whole patch is a mix of wild strawberries, Greek oregano and creeping buttercups plus the odd thing I've actually planted. The left one sadly looks more like willowherb. I rather it would be what nutcutlet suggested.

Tetley, it does look like vinca which I rue that I introduced into my garden but the leaves are not rubbery.

Nutcutlet I think you might be right. I have taken seeds of that last year and planted them but totally forgotten about it.

Anyone done any gardening today?

I've done some seeding of Tomatoes, beans, cucumber, peppers, cucamelons and courgettes. Hopefully some of it will grow. Half of them are sitting on one of my radiators waiting to germinate.

Just spotted these two small plants in my border (after a long winter of neglect..) They are circled in red. Are they weeds or something else. The one to the right look a bit like basil but no way it is that. Any ideas?

Hibiscus pruning (indoor variety)

Posted: 06/04/2015 at 18:36

Hi, I have an old lovely red double/triple hibiscus that has gone rather lanky and lost most of its leaves. Can I give it a sever haircut and hope it will regenerate itself or would that kill it? Was thinking of cutting it back and then let it spend summer outdoors as that has helped it before shoot from bare stems

The previous mixes I have used have worked fine so I didn't expect this to cause a problem. I quite like the idea so that is why I do it.
