Blackthorn in the hedges, pretty, but prickly. Has sharp thorns as nutcutlet said.
When they get their true leaves, not just the seedling leaves, then ease them up carefully with the help of a plastic plant label or a pencil. Have ready your compost filled flower pots and holding a seedling by it's leaves, not the stem, ease it carefully into a hole you've made in the flower pot with your finger or a pencil. Gently push the earth around it and water using a fine watering can rose. Don't forget to label them. Sounds as though you did overwater the sweet peas.
Hollie-Hock, sorry can't remember how old it is, several years.
The flowers on mine are like this.
You can make a very smelly liquid plant feed with the leaves.
Bother, it wouldn't download. Clicked on edit, wanted to delete it, can't.
Matty, why don't you like lupins? I think they look gorgeous here in this garden we visited in Devon last year.
Forgot to click for the Dicentra!
I love violas.
Dicentra spectabilis is just coming out. I love it's other name of "Lady in the Bath" when you pick a flower, hold it upside down and gently squeeze it sideways.
Should be more Ls. Lilac and Lily of the Valley, all coming out here now and smelling so sweet. In France people give each other sprigs of Lily of the Valley on the 1st May and people sell them on the roadsides.
Raining in Dordogne. But needed after last weeks 25°
