Please identify my flowering plant in my garden

Posted: 26/07/2013 at 12:48

from the leaves, it looks like the wild double flowered opium poppies.

Can you identify this plant and is it ill/deficient?

That was the only thing that germinated, and it got a lot of TLC as well. Unfortunately I was only  looking after a rogue plant .

i bought some kew seeds of some exotic euphorbia from T & M with yellow flowers. This was what I got. This was planted 3 yrs from a seedling. It's about 6ft tall with white flowers with fishy smell. Should I dig it up and bin it? It's in the middle of my raised bed.

A Cautionary Tale .....

anything that is rampant goes in a pot or get planted in the border with the plant still in the pot. if it spread by seeds, then the seedheads get chopped as soon as the flowers go over.

Dead Head Alliums?

it depends on what type of soil u have and how big yr garden is. if they like yr soil, then u will get loads of seedlings like grass seedlings and they can take over and swamp the spring display so if u have a small town garden, then its a bit of a nuisance and deadheading will be a better option.
