Hello everyone, this is a story that is a lot similar to another thread that has been running. I've posted it as this is very close to my heart. The daily mail link shows some really interesting pictures.
Since the story has been run the estate in question has now retracted the £5k bill
This is not the "council" but a private rural estate.
I would say yes, only just started with veg but have bought flower seeds from supermarkets in the past
I have two lovely ferns in pots either side of my backdoor. It's a fairly shady spot but gets dappled shade.
From a couple of years ago, the rest of the plants have gone but the two ferns are still there.
I would chuck them in soil and see what happens
Now is the time to buy them, I picked up a small bunch from my local GC
Good news, thanks nut. Looks like I might have picked up a bargain
I wouldn't waste bought compost on filling pots, I would mix it, probably 2/3 soil and a 1/3 compost for bulbs, maybe a bit more heavy on the compost it was for summer bedding
I've been looking at the Phlomis russeliana and the leaves definately look the same and the stems are square in shape. From what I've read they are also called Turkish Sage. I think the guy said that the flowers were green/yellow. I'm pretty sure that's what I have got. Thanks to everyone for helping with identifying it.
My next question would be is this a plant that encourages pollinators?
I have some beautiful white ones that are just ready and waiting for the sun, they remind me of little parachutes or balloons. Hope we get some sunshine soon.
Good news Ww, not seen any pollinators yet, just goes to show they are out there
