Hi everyone,

I sowed some larkspurs a while ago and potted on a few. These have grown as well but don't know what they are. They don't look at all like weeds to me. I did sow some delphs at the same time in a different part of the seedtray but they don't look like delphs either?



i can see a couple of the larkspurs in there as well, all is not lost


I'd have said Foxgloves too. 

Those little parley-like leaves might be larkspur?

Thanks, I was thinking they may be foxgloves but have no idea how they got there



Have you got foxgloves in the garden?

Hi Dove, yes I have quite a few of them,I do reuse seed compost as well.This happened last year, thought I was growing sweetpeas but up popped a couple of larkspurs, that I'd given up on months ago. On a bonus this year, a lot of the larkspurs germinated...still too small to go out though

Had another look at them tonight, they do look like foxgloves, they are doing better than the ones that I have sown

Will the larkspur flower this year? How will you look after the seedlings from now on? I've got a packet of seed, but not really up for any more pots of stuff....

Not sure PaperFlowers, although in theory they should. They are only in small pots, they are about 3 inches big, got a few little roots poking through the bottom. Will let them grow a little more before contemplating putting them out. I try and grow things on a bit so I don't lose them all overnight by the slugs and snails

The Larkspurs I grew from last seed, were too small to go out so they were over wintered in a cold frame last year and I planted them out about a month ago and they are about to flower. I had 3 of the 6 survived but that was probably down to me completly neglecting them
