Thanks nutcutlet

I think calibrachoa looks right. Although not petunia they label and sell them as such. Rascals. 

So now to find a supplier of plugs for the summer.

I think you may have nailed it. Thank you

If I may be as stupid as to ask if it does not produce any seed, how does the poor plant reproduce itself?

Thanks sotongeoff

I had already found the ones on the T&M site but as far as I can make out they are the variety with the larger flower head and not the small one I am looking for.

The problem is the label that came with the plants last year only gives the variety as petunia and is not specific.

Hi all

I would like to grow some Petunia from seed this year to fill the hanging baskets.I normally just buy plug plants from B&Q etc, but this year I want to take full control.

I am looking for the small flower variety, which from googling I think is called Milliflora, but I can't seem to find them on any of the big suppliers lists.

Can you recomend what varieties are best and where I can purchase the seed from.


Is it a weed?

Sorry for my tardy response and thank you to you both.

It does indeed look like Figwort. I can now consign it to the garden waste bin and consider myself slightly further educated in the garden. Sometimes curiosity gets the better of me.


Incidentally one thing that may be of interest to others trying to identify this plant, is that the leaves smelled of cooked / barbecued meat. Very strange !!

Hi all

I found a tuber/root in my new garden, (only been here a couple of years), when digging the border and lifted it and potted it to see what would grow.

Link to photo.

I think it is nothing more than a weed, but I don't see any more growing anywhere in the surrounding area. Even if it's not a weed, it's not very nice plant anyway and will get the chuck.

Thanks for your help.
