At least I do not feel left out this time, I too am stuffed to the gills with reviews.

Ah, so you are the Kitchen appliances crew then!

Not easy. I store the dried seeds in those tubes in which False teeth cleaing tablets are sold. They are sterile and airtight. The tubes are then stored in a polystirene box in the work shed. Seems to work for me.

Blue is hard but pink is easy. There are various Lamprnathus in pink and Delosperma. Mind none of these Mesambrainthemum type plats are truly hardy.

The Meths thing works but only if you actually dab the stuff on the aphid. No insecticide really works as they are protected by the wax (wool) so it just runs off.

Apple tree problem

You can use the Winter Wash now when you scrub the tree. It is a natural insecticidal soap and that dissolves the wax on the aphids and they then dehydrate and die. It is a long term problem by the way and getting rid can take a fewapplications.

Any ideas?!

Has anyone seen seed heads on the White Swan anemone? If so can you describe them? A. japonica has woolly seed heads.

Please help with plant ID

Sorry my eyesight is not up to that.

Well the A. rivularis has been around for a very long time. Odd one in that it sets good seed which if sown fresh, germinates almost straight away. BUT getting from that to  planting out size is difficult, not managed it yet.
