Rose Campion Seed

Surrey, United Kingdom Gb

A friend has very sweetly given me some Rose Campion seed from her garden. I would like to know how and when to plant it, and would it be ok to start it off now in the coldframe? Thanks.

I am muddywelliessurrey and there is the original muddywellies (who is much more knowledgeable than me!) - I didn't know the name had been taken when I signed up and have apologised to the original one! How are you?

you can start them off in the coldframe, no problem, but i think you will find they will grow readily around the garden from self set seeds also..

Thanks Steveb - I will start them off in the frame, as I like a full coldframe and at least I can give them a little bit more attention. If I plant them in the ground - I will forget where I put them, and probably weed them out!
