Can roots grow in drains from a seed within a drain?

Seeds growing in drains?  What a load of twaddle!  

That's a shorter way of saying I agree with Nut

Oh Chicky ,,, deep envy here ... we used to have auriculas in a gravel bed in the front garden in a previous house ...... I didn't know they were there when we moved in late January ... over the next few months that garden revealed that a real plant lover had lived there a few years ago.  

Now where could I grow auriculas here .................... 

Fairy ... fancy having all those friends living in Papi Joe's garden   party time eh?

Morning Joyce 

Morning Hosta - love the new pond   those Lollipop birds are busy 'nesting' ... .e 

I've just ordered a batch of live mini-mealworms for our robins - they've grown to expect assistance with feeding their brood at this time of year and come and take mealworms from our hands.

I would prick them out singly. That way you'll get stronger plants.

Hello Loana  And welcome aboard 

Good luck at the Hort Show. I used to take part in our village horticultural shows (3 a year) when I lived down in rural Suffolk. They're a great institution and a lot of fun .... usually  As you say, there's a lot to be learned 

please help me to identify this plant

Hi Vikas 

It looks to me like the Mexican Hat Plant - Kalanchoe daigraemontiana   

It may grow lots of tiny plantlets on the edges of its leaves - these can be taken off and grown separately.
