First germinations
« on: 30 November, 2018, 13:23:09 »
Do others do as I have done in recent years and follow Mike Hurst's advice and sow the winter rosette meconopsis in October. I sowed a range of seeds on 27th October and today had my first germinations. Only one or two seedlings so far in three of the germinating pots but masses of M.napaulensis (hort) {M. complexa correctly i suppose}. Great to have the start of next year's plant raising under way so early and hopefully there might be germinations from this years Meconopsis Group list (sown 10/11) before Christmas too.

My first germinations for 2019 are Meconopsis punicea sown in the autumn and left outside, and open to the elements except for a cover of chicken-wire mesh to keep the blackbirds off. 

Also a germination of the same species, inside the unheated greenhouse from a sowing in March 2017.

Sometimes it pays to keep the old trays!
