HELLO FORKERS!

It will need to go under cover, or you can take cuttings if it has stopped flowering. I usually do the cuttings when i cut them down in late october to go in the greenhouse.

I found three lurkers in the courgette patch. Now if I'd been going for the biggest marrow competition I would be happy. I have a flower on the discovery apple, and last years brugmansia cuttings are flowering, despite not being fed and in too small a pot. Funny old year.

You could do either. Carefully lever up a few seedlings and pot on in gritty compost. They look a bit crowded there.

Please ID this plant

It looks like an osteospermum. As we had little frost last year it survived the winter. It may be hardier now it is bigger,but I wouldn't risk it. Take cuttings of unflowered shoots now, dip in rooting powder and plant in a pot of gritty compost. Keep frost free and on the dryish side over winter. Pot on in spring and plant out in late may or early june.

Plant ID please

Or get a squirrel to do it for you.

I let the squirrels and jays have their fill, and just mow up the leaves afterwards.

Is this an escaped pet (or a boas dinner) or a natural occurring albino?
