The seeds can take a long time to germinate - sometimes more than a year. This plant grows happily all over my garden and I don't mind where it turns up I just let it get on with ti
I agree with Ladybird and always sow 'tricky' seeds in pots rather than trays and cover the surface with fine grit. That way you can leave them for a year or two without too many weed seeds blowing in and germinating, and they are easier to move around than trays or modules when you need the space. I sowed some Dierama (Slieve Donard) in February and only noticed last week that they had finally surfaced. No sign of the Jap. acers sown last September but I'll give those another year - I think they needed a colder stratification period than we had last Winter - 2 days of frost doesn't really count!
I'm still getting germinations from my artificial winter Bob, couple of months in the fridge when the weather had failed to perform. Arisaema tortuosum germinated last week and fidgets Roscoeas about 3 weeks ago.
Nice one, nut. I've now been banned from using the fridge for gardening purposes (keep forgetting to wash my mitts!) but have an idea.. I'll tell OH we need a new one and can then stick the old one in the garage.
Yes, the shed fridge is for wine and seeds
I don't like my beer chilled
Yep, the thought of a few cans and bottles had indeed crossed my mind Buddyboy!
Can't drunk in charge of a seed bekkie
I have to get all thinking done before I get the bottle open. No chance after that.
Not much before
