Veg plants dying

Posted: 10/06/2015 at 18:00

They have probably had a shock as your conservatory has been very warm and we have had cold high winds recently which have probably scorched your plants.  Try again there is still time. 

Anyone identify this plant for me?

I wouldn't take the risk of letting it grow on just in case it is JKW and it looks like you have lots of lovely plants in your garden anyway.  If you do dig it out keep a close eye on that area in case any more pops up in which case I would weed killer it.

Plant (weed?) identification

I class this as a 'good' weed as it is so easy to pull out or leave if you like it - hate the smell though if you touch it.

I'm glad Monty gave advice on growing streptocarpus as they are so pretty and not often covered in programmes.

After sampling White Lady last year from another allotmenteer I have been converted as the flavour was so good.  I had 100% germination and they are growing out in the allotment now and look really healthy. 

What is this?

They have been particularly good in the hedgerows this year, around our way.

Buddleia Globosa

I usually fling blood fish and bone around the garden in spring and leave it at that.  Do take care about pruning though as globosa is not like davida and rarely needs pruning.  If it does need to be tidied up do it after flowering (summer) - if you leave it too late you will  not get flowers the following year.

Trees from Seeds.

I was sent some germinated astrantia seedling by another forum member last year which she had dug up from between gravel where they had germinated.   She put them between damp kitchen paper, wrapped them with cling film and put them in an ordinary envelope in the post.  They arrived a couple of days later and now are merrily growing in the back garden.

I know that they weren't tree seedlings but it could work the same.  Perhaps you could experiment with sprouting some seeds and send them to someone you know to see how they get on.
