What on Earth is this?

It's cyclamen seeds ....... the stems sort of corkscrew down and deposit the round seeds around the parent plant.

Am I Fragrant!

Posted: 23/05/2017 at 14:03

I'm not up on the west coast of Scotland now ... that was a holiday ... but  I am on the edge of the Norfolk Broads, just on the edge of some marshes and we have a pond in the garden ... and I am also allergic to mosquito bites, they swell up and form horrid fluid-filled blisters which become infected.  


However, I've found as I've reached shall we say 'retirement age' the mozzies don't seem half as interested in me as they used to ......... so you've got that to look forward to

Brilliant news Hosta!  Hope she's feeling chuffed to bits!!! 


I've set Tivo to record James Wong etc this afternoon 


I've just potted on ten pots of basil and some other bits and pieces.  I think I need to plant out some echinacea into the front garden this afternoon ..........

Sorry but the leaves are not the right shape for Potentilla repens.

I believe it is Argentina anserina...silver weed.

Colour is so subjective ... they're described as lilac on the link

Try Avon Skin so Soft Dry OIl spray ... it has citronella in it ... apparently the British Army buy it by the bucket load when on manoeuvres  ... it worked for me on the West coast of Scotland ... most people seem to find it works although some say it doesn't but it's not expensive so it's worth trying, and it smells nice 

Amie seedlings are they related to Ground Elder?

That would be a shame ... show us a photo ... click on the camera icon to upload a photo ... if it doesn't appear try reducing the size of the pic.
