Why do squirrels eat camellia flower buds? they nearly eaten all the flowers buds off my pink flowers camellia is there a way to stop them ?
I have always used my fridge, with varing success for seeds that need stratification, keeping strict records of my sowing regimes (a throwback from my botanic garden days). When surfing around the web to obtain information on the different requirements of seeds to get them to germinate, I came across an article about Gibberellic Acid and how scientists in Japan have developed GA-3, a powder that, when mixed with water, makes a solution that can be used to break the dormancy of seeds that require "a winter", thus negating the need for stratification. Apparently it can also be used on old seeds to get them to germinate.
Has anyone else come across GA-3 and is it available to amateur gardeners or is it just for the trade?
In your description of Abelia chinensis you state that it is evergreen and then that it is deciduous. Which is correct?
