seed share

Posted: 21/08/2013 at 23:31

Hi I also have some seeds which I mail ordered but never got round to planting. Been in the fridge all this time. All are for growing indoors I think.

Toona sinensis

Liquidambar styraciflua

Diplarrena latifolia

If anyone wants them just ask but dont know if they will still germinate after being in the fridge for a few months

i had actually previously posted about the plant before in a different thread

Do laburnums climb up other plants? It seems to have small tendril like growths on the tips

I guess no one has any experience with them but I may have jumped the gun anyway as more buds are opening. I guess the sudden change in environment probably caused the bud drop :/

Hi wondered if anyone can id this plant please. Grew from mixed unknown species seed packet. I think maybe its a kind of pea. It's climbing up the mahogany tree in the pot but pictures may not be very clear. Hasnt flowered yet just keeps growing.

I maybe rather stupidly bought an oriental lily from homebase that was labelled as suitable for growing indoors. I have had it two days now with flower buds on and now the unopened buds are falling off.

I was told by a specialist breeder that they can't really be kept indoors to flower but since I liked the scent so much I bought one from a homebase store. The person in charge said it would be ok but I know they want to sell their stock so

Is my lily going to just not flower ever? One of the flower buds did open but this was a well developed one. I dont have a garden just a window that gets a lot of light and warmth during the day.

Most of my tropical plants are doing fine in there but they were grown from seed. If anyone has any advice I would be glad for it.

I have grown these plants from an unamed seed mixture. Need help with any clues as to what they are. They have flowered kind off so I think they may be annuals

There were but not of the same plant sorry. I do have another seedling growing which could be the same but its not got its first leaves yet. It was just a lottery mixture from chilterns seeds. These are just 'small quantities of hundreds of different varieties of seeds' that are just mixed together, according to the description.
