onions

Posted: 05/07/2014 at 22:02

If they all bolted, wouldn't it be worth trying spring planted onions instead? I found autumn planted ones were not worth the space they took up.

Can anyone tell me what this plant is?

Well i"d narrow it down to Lamiacae .

 Maybe watermint?  Where is it growing, height, soil etc?

RHS zones are more use in Britain.  American zoning is very different because of the increased rainfall we have here in Winter.

Knautia macedonica Melton pastels have about 4 to 5 ft height and lots of flowers the bees like.

Worried this is Japanese Knotweed!

Hellebore seedling?

Why is it White when it was Purple?

I have had a few strange colours this year. My Rosa filipes seedling that normally has a pink bud, but opens to white,has all pink flowers at the top of the hawthorn where it gets more sunshine. The rest of the flowers are white.

I have a dahlia,that for 2 years has been peach and coral, but this year is opening a much deeper colour.

certainly some sweet peas that I have are a much deeper colour than on the packet. I have put it down to the weather. I cant see what else would be different. The dahlias are in a different position, but the rose is neither pruned nor fed.

I.D. Required please

Mine are all bent over too. My problem is that the overwintered plants look like dandelions and are in great danger of being dug out.

The flowers are almost identical to Catananche, or cupids dart when open, but the buds and plant habit are different.

Are these overwintered onions. ?

My onions are only just starting to swell and I wouldn't be thinking of drying them off for storage until Late August.

If the tops have died off, and you have dug them up, then you can dry them anywhere. Leaving them on the ground just invites slugs.

Can i uncover carrots yet?

I'd keep it on.
