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.

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.

Mulch or fleece for the winter

If there is new green growth then covering that up might lead to problems, so in Spring you do need to be more careful. Have to say though, that we just throw it one without trying to be careful.

Old rule from years back, was Mulch in Autumn to conserve heat and manure in Spring to warm the soil.

Better not to have washed them. Once they are thoroughly dry and they need to be dry then we store ours in hessian sacks in a cool, dark, frost free shed.
