I have too many plants. I can meet up for a plant swap, any day next week if anyone in South Yorks or north notts is interested. Actually I probably don't want to swap, just find homes for them.
I will do a list later on.
They generally need a frame of some sort. There is a beautiful one in The Park in Nottingham, trained over ironwork supports to a tree shape.
When did you plant them?
. I bought a load that I Autumn planted and they flowered, no trouble at all.
Well drained and Sandy soil. In heavy clay they will rot.
Bulbs too small or not planted deep enough.
Linaria purpurea. It seeds around a bit but the bees love it. Just pull out any you don't want. It's easy to remove if it's in the wrong place.
Yes, a lovely hardy geranium.
You have to trample the stems to break the coating and then use glyphosate. Marestail has roots that go down miles. Good luck.
I now have a dozen in 7cm pots, growing strongly.
Plant it on its side, growing out of a wall or something. Lewisias don't like wet in the crown.
