FRESH SEEDLIST NOW ENDED

FOR REFERENCE ONLY

This is a list of our freshly harvested seeds that need to be sown as soon as you receive them. They have all been hand pollinated. This process is very time consuming and fiddly, as it is often very difficult to find pollen on H. japonica varieties. This means that they are almost all crossed with whatever I could find pollen on. You will be likely to get a lot of variation in the seedlings. The photograph is of the seed parent. Most of the H. nobilis have been self-pollinated, so you should get a high proportion of seedlings coming true. There will usually be some variation, however - look upon this as a good thing!

The snowdrops are again all hand-pollinated to ensure your best chance of getting seedlings of a similar type, but again you WILL get variation (no guarantees!). Please do not label your seedlings 'Dryad Gold' - they are 'EX Dryad Gold'.

Seedheads are bagged to retain the seeds and watched closely. When harvested, the seeds are cleaned and disinfected before packing.

For Hepaticas I use a mix containing approximately 1 part John Innes no2, 1 part coarse leaf mould, and 2 parts perlite. The seeds are just covered with compost then topped with grit. They are kept cool and moist, then brought under cover in the winter. They usually germinate the following spring.

They are left in their seed pots for one year, then pricked out into the same mix as their new leaves are appearing. I usually cut off the bottom third of their roots as I prick them out. I also do this to all my plants at repotting, at the same time combing out any black, dead roots.
