Help! Astrantia by seed

Posted: 19/09/2013 at 15:53

DO NOTHING... i.e, let the seed fall on the soil where they are. They will germinate in situ and you can dig them up and move them on next spring. Simples.

Whats your plans for next year.

If you have dry bulbs and you fear they will not do much why not plant them up in pots for the first year and then plant out "in the green" next spring. Watering your pots, but not waterlogging, is essential.

I used to visit my local greengrocer to collect the various leaves, stalks and bits and pieces he discarded. These were added to my lawn mowings to get the right combination of nitrogen and carbon.  If you can turn the heap to introduce air you will get bacterial action, lots of heat and nice compost. And happy plants.

We lived in a very nice cave, it had wall paintings.

Snap, I got married in 1970, but never travelled on the Brighton Belle. Nearest I got was watching the Bournemouth Belle steaming past the level crossing near my home. Used to stand on the footbridge and run through the steam. Happy days...

Your commuting reminds me when I was a long distance commuter. Fares were reasonable, only £16 per month from Southampton to Waterloo!, fast trains , a seat, and tea and toast from the buffet car for the equivalent of 6p. Working on your laptop was confined to reading a newspaper!  Long time ago, and yes trains had been invented.

Talkback: How to harvest sweetcorn

They are much better microwaved for about 3 mins., turned over, mw for 3 more mins. Lot less bother than boiling . Keep flavour and scrunch.
