Primula Auricula seedlings

I am waiting for the 1,000 I have grown from my own seed to flower. All open pollinated so there could be anything.

Great fun though.

Well, you do have to eat a humungous amount of Lettuce or Carrot for them to poison you, but they are poisonous. 

So is water in massive doses.

One of the few genus of which I have no literature.

A couple of IDs please.

Could be, now that I have seen the leaves. Not that I can find any Potentillas exactly like that either.

Sand/Grit

Posted: 26/06/2015 at 14:27

All to do with the particle size. Soft sand has smaller, more rounded particles so it sticks together. Sharp sand has larger more angular particles so it falls apart.

Rub it between your fingers, sharp sand feels gritty. Soft sand will make a ball when squeezed.

Sharp sand is what you need for adding to soil.

A couple of IDs please.

The shrub is Spiraea, not sure of the species, but bumalda is a possibility.
