Armandii definitely don't like windy conditions, Gg. Can you provide some shelter, or move it?

Sorry for the delay in responding Chicky ( listening to Paul Tortelier play Elgar on TV) but agree with Dove. Ground will do nicely

If you plant them Chicly what is to stop them doing their best to flower by early Summer... go for it, what fun.

Wilsonii if your spot is in any way shaded, for me. And Wesselton is delicate enough to look a little washed out if in bright sun???

Haven't grown either so what do I know  

What a weird mild Winter

Posted: 17/01/2014 at 18:34

Please don't be encouraged to sow seeds too early, because of current mild spell. You will probably get lots of failures, and if they do do well it may not be possible to plant them out and they will be weak and straggly. Keep to your normal timings.

Whats your plans for next year.

Go for leaf interest,rather than gaudy flowers. lamiums, heucheras, dicentra??

Whats your plans for next year.

Ferns, fritillaries, pulmonarias, all look great at foot of trees, shrubs. Erythroniums too.

snowdrops in spring?

Whats your plans for next year.

Good luck THG. You will love it, but don't be too upset if you get a few failures. No season or year is perfect for everything and the conditions which help one plant may be the very things that hinder another.

Only by having a go will you learn what's best for you. We've all been there. My T-Shirt is full of holes already.

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.
