Marguerite seeds, Argyranthemum frutescens

Posted: 16/03/2016 at 20:59

Most argyranthemums are propagated from cuttings.i have kept one that I was given, i take cuttings every Autumn to overwinter for the following year. I was given the original plant over 20 years,ago.

What are these?

They could be raspberry canes. Wait until they have leaves then send in another photo.

Good evening, Panda.

The ducks are back. A pair of mallards come around this time, for the last five years or so. I wonder how long they'll stay this year.

I had wrens make a nest in one, one winter. It was by the back door. Every time the back door opened, they would try and get into the warm kitchen. I didn't dare move it until Spring in case they couldn't find it and froze to death.

Is this Cephalaria Gigantea (Giant Scabious)?

That looks like a small tree or shrub.  Cephalaria gigantea is a herbaceous perennial, it dies down in winter usually,but this winter has been so mild it only went down to a bunch of divided leaves. It is now growing well, and about a foot high, no woody bits except for the remains of last years flower spikes.

Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

Posted: 14/03/2016 at 19:18

I sowed some salad leaves today, and some microgreens.

Hostafan, that edging could do with some snowdrops. I can send you some later on in the year when they die down if you like. I just push the bulbs in gaps in the summer, the dying leaves get covered over later.
