what is this and can i plant it now for spring?

Posted: 10/11/2016 at 10:45

Here is my aubretia in April last year. I planted some little plants in a bed on the edge of the terrace a few years ago and it's seeded itself around the flower pots and in cracks in the terrace. I didn't plant any of the plants now on the terrace! I love plants that give you a bonus like that.

Good luck with your hand.


I'm happy to look out in winter and see plants wrapped in fleece, gives me a feeling of satisfaction knowing I've done what I can to help them survive the winter.

I would pot them into bigger pots and put them in the cold frame. Heleniums should be hardy. Salvias - depends on variety.

Good advice from pansyface. It will be better protected once planted and will get off to a better start in the spring.


By the way, pansyface types in capitals because of an eyesight problem, she's not shouting.

I just hope that Trump has some good people on his staff to keep things going.

I've just looked at Meadowhall's website, it's all about Christmas shopping. Afraid it's going to cost you money, punkdoc.

Morning all. I have the same rain as DD.


Hugs to DD. Any further news on the house, or is that a sore subject?


I'm staying indoors today, probably sorting photos.

Donald or hillary?

But do note everyone that Verdun apologised on the previous page.

I remember when Verdun was called Christopher, he was quite shy and only posted about plants then. Then he was angry because another poster tried to steal his profile, so he changed his name, then I remember, as does Dove, when he had a sense of light hearted humour and liked doughnuts. Now he sends out sniping digs and upsets people. Is it the same Verdun we used to love? Or has he been taken over? Please come back the fun Verdun.

I think 1 and 2 are argyranthemums because of the leaves.


5 is indeed a Physostegia or Obedient plant because if you push the flowers they stay there.


6 may be a rudbeckia called Maya.
