Bit late but plant them asap. You may have spuds for christmas if you grow them in the big bags and can give them protection from frosts in October.

Silphium perfoliatum is native to Connecticut and is a weed in some  AmericanStates  . In UK it is a large sunflower type plant for the back of a border.

Bad batch of runner bean seeds?

Posted: 28/06/2016 at 07:54

I had a packet of runner beans, new this year, not one germinated. The seed company replaced them, after I had resown with another packet. I used commercial compost, sown at the same time as my sweetcorn, same conditions. All the sweetcorn came up.

But at least the garden  hasn't dried up while you've been away.

If you find a lion in the undergrowth, send it round to the neighbours.

I think chive cha cha is also a distinct possibility. If it is big, there is also Babingtons leek, that forms onions on the top of its flower stems, or the Egyptian walking onion.
