How tall does it grow, Surrey?

20 Apr, 2013

 

It's a smallish one Mouldy about 12 - 18 inches tops

20 Apr, 2013

 

Was thinking of getting one for alongside my dicentra for next year, Surrey.
What do you think?

20 Apr, 2013

 

that should be fine Mouldy, this ones very easy grows in shade or sun and will spread by rhizome root. it will look good mate.

Growing annuals from seed is so time consuming, I've figured, so I want to be less reliant on them in the future.
Obviously, they'll still have their place/s, but I don't want to repeat having 100's upon 100's of seedlings sitting around in the flat, growing spindly or dying, while we wait for the whim of the weather.
Listen to me...starting to sound like a real gardener. Lol.

20 Apr, 2013

 

lol yep mate :-)

i like the challenge of growing from seed though.

20 Apr, 2013

 

Lol. Yeah, but within reason, the reason being I can't move for seed trays, plugs & pots of varying sizes that I'm adding to on a daily basis, mate, while trying not to fall over bags of compost & having to shift plants out of the way to sit down, have a bath or climb into bed.
I'm being serious, here, Surrey!
Still, plenty of free oxygen, eh? Lol.

20 Apr, 2013

 

lol yes true, i'm lucky i've got the space here.

20 Apr, 2013

 

I'll have to knock up a wee cold-frame & a mini-greenhouse, in the back court, when I get some breathing space.
Have to use perspex, so as not to tempt the kids! ;-)
I should have thought of that before, but the job sort of snowballed on me from the last week in Feb.
Next year, though...glutton for punishment, me. Lol.

20 Apr, 2013

 

Lol, Perspex it quite good stuff, good luck with it.

20 Apr, 2013

 

Thanks, Surrey.
I'll post photos as & when.
