I'm so excited ....I've grown Gunnera Tinctoria from my own seed

I know its not rocket science but I'm so pleased that I have Gunnera Tinctoria seedings which have germinated from the seed I collected from my plant in the Autumn.

Well done Dawn, hard to believe such little seedlings will turn into such huge plants isn't it.

Great wel done, i'd be giving myself a pat on the back.

It is exciting. It's thanks to you Kathy, you inspired me to collect seed from my own plants and I didnt really expect them to germinate. I've read that it can takes months for them to come up - these were set about 6 weeks ago.
Yes Louise - hard to believe these tiny things end up being giants.

Well-done, Dawn!
It has very tiny seeds, doesn't it? Have you covered the seeds with the compost or just pressed in?

20 Feb, 2010

 

Hello Uma and thank you. Yes, I covered the seeds with the compost - very tiny seeds. Its taken a few weeks for them to germinate though. I have a couple more through now.

There isn't any chance to have Spring in February...:)
But we have a very rapid one and then in May Summer comes.

I'm hoping for vast improvements as we are fast approaching March.

Hi, Dawn! Yes, we have +4+5 all the day round, but at nights it's -2-3. There is still much snow here, it's melting...Brrrr, I hate cold wind most of all...:(

Hi Uma, I'm pleased your weather conditions arent too bad at the moment. Dream on about your hot summer months. x

Awww, Dawn...hot summer nights that are filled with Mirabilis and Mattiola's fragrance...I miss them so much!

26 Feb, 2010

 

Not long to wait Uma :-)

:)) Dawn, you can find these plants in GoYpedia. Mattiola is called Night-scented stock, and Mirabilis iscalled the four o'clock flower or marvel of Peru.

I've seen them Uma - beautiful. I love the night scented stock aroma.
