Purple sensation, fail to flower

Posted: 29/05/2016 at 22:58

Bulbs too small or not planted deep enough.

Can anyone identify this?

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.

Please identify this weed for me

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.

Lewisia advice please

Posted: 29/05/2016 at 17:01

Plant it on its side, growing out of a wall or something. Lewisias don't like wet in the crown.

Weed? ID help please

How much bigger will my Alpines get

Taking it as a clockface.

12 o clock is a sempervivum, it will stay that size and grow slowly.

The one at 7  looks like snow in summer, cerastium, and is not an alpine but is used for ground cover. I would move it out on its own.

Sempervivums look good clumped together.

Plant ID please
