to me it is a mistery

Hi Neil   Big Shooting Stars fans here   Plus our garden's full of pigeons and doves 

Agree that the second looks like a geranium, but don't think the first is fennel - the structure looks wrong to me.  Fennel has a very angular structure with 'branches' going off alternate sides, then the ferny leaves having leaflets in opposite pairs.  

I'm wondering if it's Nigella aka Love in a Mist

If you can get to a pc you can post a pic by clicking on the green tree icon on the toolbar above where you type your post and follow the instructions - no idea how to do it from a phone - not even sure if you can - think that's being worked on.

Think there might be a culture clash going on here - Autumn, some of your earlier posts were perceived as being rude and arrogant; totally dismissive of other people's long years of experience and offers of advice.   I'm sure that was not your intention but it's the way it came across. 

To quote a phrase with multiple attributions, "England and the USA are two nations divided by a common language"  - to add to that I would highlight that the social graces in each country have developed quite differently, to the extent that members of the USAF were given lessons in English manners when newly stationed over here in the past. 

This is a friendly forum and hopefully it will remain so.

For this season think I'd pop along to the GC and buy some plants and pop them in the veg patch, and stand back and admire them proudly with your fingers crossed behind your back 

Climber grown from pot?

Hi Barney Kemp

How big an area of wall are you hoping to cover?  Which way does the house face and is it windy or sheltered?

Beware of making a raised bed by a house-wall - it might compromise the damp course.
