March is not going out like a lamb, but seeds are germinating well at the moment, possibly due to the hard winter we had.

My latest Diary entry is here

Good to see the seedling pots Diane as presentations to groups rarely show these. Also the harsh conditions this winter seem to have had a miraculous effect on pots that have sat there for 18 months doing nothing. It was either the winter or Brian's dire threats "I'll give them till the end of March then they are out!!!"

seeds by size

Hi Diane and any other forum members.

Has anyone any experience of buying seeds from the above firm, as well as an impressive catalogue of veg. seeds he also lists a lot of bulb seeds including what i would consider choice species.

Liked the entry Diane I still have a few 5 year old pots of seeds still waiting in hope! Anne

Great entry Diane, many thanks.

Agree totally on Arisaemas, the germinate so well when sown late April/early May.

All my colchicums germinated well in Feb 09 after the cold weather, some pots being 4 or 5 years with no signs of life. Most of these pots have even more germinating again this spring.
