You'll be right then Nut - I'm on my phone and can't see rhizomes.

Have a look at Sisyrinchiums and see if there are any that look like yours. But you'll probably have to wait until you get blooms to know what you have.

My native primroses came from a packet of bought dried seed - they took a while to germinate but I've got several nice clumps now.

Good suggestion Bob - you could mix horticultural grit or perlite with the JI No 1 at a ratio of one part grit to  parts compost.

I would pot on geranium cuttings into John Innes No 1 loam-based conpost which will promote growth.
