chelsea again.


By bloomer


Thank you so much for all the lovely comments on the Delphiniums and Alliums at Chelsea.I bought a packet of the D.seeds from that grower,and sowed them in spring,but waited so long,I thought they had failed,so sowed some cosmos in same tray.When they were well on their way,I noticed 2 different little plants [only 2] and pleased to say one was a white one,but other didn’t flower.Next year,they should be nice,if I make sure the slugs don’t get to them.They are staying in the tub so Ican keep my eye on them.
The grower told me to keep the seeds in a sealed container in the fridge,and the rest of the packet is still there.So next spring,will try again.
Maybe someday I will have my own display like Chelsea.Dream on !

Your welcome ,Yes seeds keep better in the frindge make sure no moisture get in and its air tight. Happy to see you have some comming up will look forward to seeing them next year, hopefully the slugs will keep away, it you get horse hair surround the plant and pin the horse hair with pins not stones the slugs won't cross it as it will burn them because of the oil in the hair.
