Wildflower seeds

Posted: 08/04/2014 at 13:14

I have had some wildflower seeds which I just pretty much scattered on the soil. - they were free and I was bored... but yeah some of them seemed to work just fine. Probably not the best of methods though - I imagine many of them probably didn't germinate.

Found this sometime last year - didn't know it was a common thing - looked cool though.

Hi all, I've had these since last summer - they are so good! they flowered all through the winter! and still going strong! I was wondering if they are some kind of daisy? (osteo spernum right?) and can I take cuttings from them? I'd love to grow more of them since they seem to do so well!

Many thanks in advance (since you are all so lovely and helpful on here!)

I've just started building a raised bed for my mum. Mainly used just old wood that was lying around - an old bed and a couple of old bookshelves. going to treat it and stuff so it doesnt die too quickly. whats the best stuff to treat it with does anybody know?

Talkback: Dandelion

I love Dandelions! I try and let them just do their thing! when they establish well they get such huge sunny yellow flowers! I don't understand why people dislike them so much! 

foxgloves in pots

Posted: 18/03/2014 at 13:26

Thanks all!

the pots are about 12" in diameter - I will move the bunched up ones asap. I'll leave the best one undisturbed as much as possible I guess. not entirely sure on the species - they are supposed to have pink flowers and have big ol' leaves that seem to be turning slightly red at the ends. I'll try posting a pic when I can. They are definately the thing I am most excited about in my garden!

foxgloves in pots

Hello all,

I have a few foxgloves planted in pots, but I think there is more than one in each pot. Should I split these up for a better flowering? If so can I do that at this time of year? are there any tips or tricks anyone has?

Many Thanks!

yeah I felt a bit mean about that post... sorry about that, its true though, I dont think (for now anyway in my tiny pot collection) anything more than a jug is really needed. The mouse idea sounds like the best to me.
