I have a book from the 1930's where there are instructions for doing this...........as a gimmick.

Can you tell me what this is?

Posted: 30/09/2013 at 10:48

Yes and another plant which will go for miles if you are not careful.

Some unknowns ....

I would love to get hold of A. simplex Pritchard's Giant, but none of the Nurseries we frequent stock it.

What is this

Posted: 29/09/2013 at 21:08

The one there is probably A.j. Honorine de Joubert.

Do be careful, I have been trying to get rid of them from one bed for 5 years now and despite weed kiiler every time it shows a leaf, I noticed today that the dratted stuff has grown again.

A crow in a crowd is a rook.

We have alot of rooks round here and I have never seen them attacking potatoes though.

The Paenia seeds are the black parts. Sow fresh and wait for a long time.

Some unknowns ....

Cimicifuga is the top one, or is it now Actaea? Probably simplex.

2nd is Phytolaca americana

Both of these berries are poisonous.

Can anyone Identify my plant please

Proper name is Nicandra physalodes by the way.

What is this little plant?

And in any case the vast majority of plant names are in almost any other language than Latin.

And most people know far more correct Botanical names than they think.

Cyclamen, Crocus, Chrysanthemum, Cornus, Dianthus, Cotoneaster.....I could name dozens, but won't. All of these are the Latinised names for plants.

What is this little plant?

Fumaria officinalis.and would you believe it is related to Poppies?

One of the few plants like this which so far have not been renamed.
