The leaf axils are wrong for teasels, teasels form a little cup that holds water around the stem.

Yet another plant ID question

I think it's a willowherb. Weed.

Bought seed that has been dried out doesn't germinate very well usually. Sometimes it's better to buy a plant and take your own seed off.

Top one looks like Penstemon sickasaparrot

Bottom one not much better. What were they supposed to be.?

I put plugs in separate 3 inch pots to grow on.

I don't have many flowers this year. the leaves are very grassy, so the undergardener mowed half the patch.

On the other hand, a fox has just crossed the lawn and carried on up the garden.

Wild orchid?

No, I meant long toms... they are a type of pot. much deeper than they are wide.

i found somewhere online that was selling a sling system to put a growbag in sideways instead of flat on its base, so the roots could have a deep root run. if you can only get six inch on the base, maybe the long toms that are used for roses may be a better bet.
