Seed and plant swap 2015

Posted: 11/09/2015 at 18:10

Hi Kathy, I would like one of each if possible. I'm afraid I don't have hostas or ferns but if there is anything else you are after and I have it, then you can have some.

Yes it was Lyn. I only got 2 to germinate with the seed I got from the rhs seed store.

I would think its ok as the pansies will be over by the time the bulbs are due to appear.

What device are you using to upload the pics as some won't allow you to do it.

3rd one is a variegated dogwood, I'm afraid I don't know the others.

If I order any it will be from Sarah Raven or it will be when Taylors Bulbs have their charity open day and all will be half price (it won't be online, you have to go there)

Another Plant ID please.

the small plant in the first picture is a violet and the second plant in the same picture looks like it might be a dogwood, but I'm going by the leaves.

A Grass, but which one?

I've had this in my front garden for a while but don't know which type it is. It might be a stip but its not Gigantea or Tenuissima.

Bargain Buy of 2015

What has been your best buy? Mine was a flaming katy for £1.00 and a slipper orchid £9.99. Never seen one 'in the flesh' before so hope I can keep it going.

Shrub ID

This has been growing in our hawthorn hedge and this year decided to be 12ft tall with read berries. I thought it migh be a pyracantha but not sure which one as there are no thorns.

Mystery plant at the bottom of my garden. I've never seen this before and it isn't something I planted.
