Pre-soaking Seeds?

Posted: 08/04/2015 at 23:53
I always germinate sweetcorn on damp kitchen paper and transfer the seed to a pot of soil as soon as the root emerges. From certain seed companies I have 100 percent success.

Other companies are a dismal failure. I avoid them for all seeds now.

Last year I planted them straight in the garden. No soaking, no starting off in trays. They put on a grand show for me and there they are again for me this year. Do not appear to have suffered any winter damage. They had no special protection.

Anemones planted at the same time are flowering away now and have done for a couple of months. Gladioli Nanus are all up too. They flowered their socks off last year.

Traps mostly work. They can be purchased from agricultural merchants or I am sure you could get them on-line.

The previous owner should have thought of this himself; it is not fair to lay this on you if you have no experience. If he wants a cutting grafted, you would also have to supply a rootstock on which to graft it.

Garden centres rely on gardeners buying plants too early; losing some of them and coming back to buy some more!

Anyone able to identify this plant?

Have you watered the leaves in the sun while the cauli are under glass?

Composting moss

Do not put it in your compost or you will surely spread it all over anywhere you put the compost. You can burn it. If you put it in your green bin it will be composted at great heat by the Council. That should kill it.
