Hello all,

Someone has given me the following seeds from their garden :

Aquilegia, lupin, large poppy & wild poppy

Being an absolute flower-garden beginner, could someone please explain how to sow these. Should they be sown in trays and then planted out or just scattered in the desired growing location.

As much detail as possible would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I have grown the first three on your list from seed in seed trays, and then planted them out in the spring and all have done brilliantly.

If you need exact sowing advice, I couldn't recommend a better website than www.seedaholic.com....but beware, the site is so lovely you'll end up buying seeds online ! Fabulous service and all seeds come with details of how to sow them etc etc

I don't know if this is the right section or not. I am looking for a plant for the past two years and always appeared to be sold out
Geranium Roxanne is the name a perennial blue flowered hardy type.
Any help appreciated.
