What Weed

Posted: Today at 07:40

Avens aka Geum urbanum

It will have a delicate yellow flower and then seed all over the garden. . Get it out before it flowers.

Poppy seeds or weeds?

The ones with forked leaves are Californian poppies., as nut says.

Yvie Stevie, yes that was John Massey from Ashwoods.

He scrubbed up well, even if he did get a bit emotional.

I just watched yesterday's. If you still have it, look at the faces on the people behind Grayson Perry.

As my mother would say... It looks like the circus is in Town.

Let's get really radical, try asking some gardening members of the public what they think.

Oh, sorry, that's what this thread is.

Apparently, some plants are male and some female. I like the central one with red calyx.

 How big is your pot?

Maybe you could stand a smaller pot onto a larger pot of compost, the roots will go through the bottom and you can keep the bottom pot wetter.

It's probably going to be difficult to repot. I grow cucumber in florists buckets with plenty of holes in the bottom . Plant the plant in the middle on a mound so that if you water from the top, it does not puddle around the stem. Wet around the stem causes rot and collapse of the plant. The compost has to be kept moist though, so it is a fine balance.

I find the boggy area is nigh on impossible to weed. Every now and then, i have dug the lot out and started again. Candelabra primulas look lovely. Interestingly, a couple of years ago, I sowed hat are supposed to be Primula florindae. They have started to flower this last week. They look more like a candelabra pulverulenta  type and are dusky rose pink instead of yellow.

I have had that type in the boggy area at the edge of the pond. I found that if I left them in over winter, with a mulch, they were slow to start in the spring. I started lifting them, and just plunging the pot for the summer.
