Re: Vermicomposting

It absolutely skipped my mind to read this forum. I actually did try to locate the red worms and succeeded. My family friend brought back live worms from one of his trips to Europe.

Re: Winter & Spring Flowering Annuals (By Khabbab)

Re: Winter & Spring Flowering Annuals (By Khabbab)

But I purchased yellow dahlia in June so it had to be prepared in the summer season :S I have packets of zinnia dahlia seeds as well and everyone who sees them says they are to be sowed in summer. Are they incorrect?
Types I have are Double White and Double Golden!

Re: Winter Flowers and Vegetable seeds

Exactly! Oh my God thank you two! I just wish I hadn't given in to my obsession to how good seed trays look and accumalted three :( Pots really do show a stark difference in germination.

Re: Winter Flowers and Vegetable seeds
