strange looking seedling

Posted: 23/07/2015 at 17:49

It looks as much like a stinging nettle seedling as anything I've ever seen, and I'm someone who's seen a great number of stinging nettle seedlings - take a look here

When I enlarge and zoom in I can even see the little hairs, that when they're big enough, will certainly give you 'nettle rash'.

Verdun, we've got heavy rain forecast for East Anglia tomorrow and Saturday - I've been around deadheading and cutting some perennials back and yesterday I planted the PSB - it'd be nice if the rain turns the grass green again

4thPanda are you there. Is it OK to post my question now?

I had a conversation with Panda earlier and I know that you've got the right answer, so I'm sure Panda will be happy for you to go ahead and post your question Fritillary

Hi folks

Wonky, Panda and I are meeting up at Bressingham Gardens about noon on Monday, 27th July - anyone free to join us will be very welcome!  We'll be looking at the late Alan Bloom's Dell Garden and Adrian Bloom's Foggy Bottom which was much admired when we last saw it

I understand the steam trains and the gallopers will be in action as well, and the icecream and cakes are always very good

Nut, my L. Graham Thomas is flowering its socks off this year - the best it's ever been, and the perfume in the evening is fantastic

Panda guessed correctly - the answer was Aeonium 'Poldark' which has caused some people to come over all unnessary

Shall we pool our piggy banks?

Or shall we stick with our seed swap?
