I have Sown two batches of each now and no germination. They are in a cold greenhouse but everything else is doing fine. Is it still too sold for them out there???
Oh great Lyn Thankyou. That would explain why nothing has come up. I will give it another go and fetch them into the house. Thanks.x
Larkspurs, I find them strange plants to grow from seed, just when you think nothing's happening up they come. I sowed mine off the plant last summer although they weren't big enough to plant out last year. They have survived in the frames and am now nuturing them to go out this year
Hmm, so you think if I leave the ones I have already sown alone they may pop up just as they sense I have given up on them?
Right. Thats the job for tomorrow then. Thanks guys
Don't give up on the aconitum seeds yet Lyn. They're slow cold germinators
Mine are sown fresh in autumn, left outside most of the winter, brought into the cold greenhouse about end of January, more for my convenience than their need. Germinate about now, one or two coming through already but hope for more. Own fresh seed is always best. I never have failures with my own seed, often with bought seed. Makes you wonder how long some of it has been stored and what the storage conditions were.
