Honesty seeds.
I planted some honesty seeds in a seed tray a few weeks ago and they are now 10 cms tall and doing well.
What do I do next? Must I overwinter them in the greenhouse in pots or can they go straight into the ground now?



well I have similar sized ones in the garden anyway so get them in asap. they will be fine.

Very hardy, get them planted should have some lovely flowers in spring..and millions of seeds if you leave them to warned,as you will be able to supply the whole country ! Lol..I've spent many an hour peeling the outer covering off,to reveal the white casings underneath,for indoor flower arrangements..( over a bucket to collect the seeds )how sad is that? .I call it therapy :o)

Nice and straightforward then!

Many thanks to you both for helping me out with this. I too found it very therapeutic peeling off the outside covering of the honesty plant to reveal the mother-of- pearl effect beneath!

My mother sent me into the garden once to gather honesty seeds. I gathered them all, pulling off all the seed heads and leaving the stems behind. How did I know she wanted them for decoration... Therapy? Not a bit of it!
