My son planted a few seeds at a playgroup. My wife thought they were sunflowers which they don't appear to be. Does anyone know what they are?

Thanks

 

Grow lighting

i just use the energy saving bulbs I have a couple 6500k colour temperature and 2700k and have grown all sorts early. It works although I am not sure if it is cost effective or not and some plants don't like the extra heat etc from the bulbs/light.  I just use those cheap clip on lamp holders you can get from poundstretcher etc

Water Retaining Crystals

I didn't realise this I have added these crystals to my pots and hanging baskets this year as I work shifts and cant always water them. I wish I hadn't now. I assumed it just break down into something harmless.

No they don't not in my experience anyway but you can easy take cuttings as most aren't fully hardy and will probably not survive the winter although mine did this year.

They do and they smell like candytuft flowers. Weird. At least I didn't pull them even if they are not candytuft I think they will look decent when in flower.

They are starting to flower now any clues as to what they are. Flowers do look similar to candytuft and have a weak sweet fragrance.

Rose help needed

They are aphids on the flower bud. Either blast them off with water or use a washing up liquid and water mix and spray it on the plant or you can just slosh some in a glass and put the foam on the aphids. The marks on the leaves are black spot.
