Labrador rescues

What a lovely thread and pictures, I'm pleased there's people like you and your wife in the world and all those that give rescue animals their time and love. Alfie looks like he's going to be a great pal 

Are these foxgloves ?

They look like foxgloves to me. I've had lots of little seedlings where mine were.

ID please.

Anyone done any gardening today - version 3

Not much gardening done but my evening primoses,salvia and pink Lychnis coronaria have all germinated and looking healthy. Thank you seed swap   Don't often have seedlings in the frames this time of year.  Late cuttings of penstenmons, seem to have taken too

Request please

I still hover too Watery, it was useful. Unfortunatley without this now I often click on posts that I've read before and can't help or have no interest in. Not much serendipity to be found when you've clicked on something several times

Haven't used them yet, but I have heard good things

Good show with the nemesia. I think mine were a Spring sowing, maybe March/April outside in one of my frames. I made the same mistake with some sort of phlox this year, pricked out individually and the results were disappointing.

Yes, I've just brought mine inside for the Winter

They germinated easily for me in a seed tray but I made the mistake of pricking out individual plants rather than growing them as a clump, so the effect wasn't that great

Planting cuttings

If you leave the ruddies and the helenium standing, you'll be able to collect your own seeds from them. The seeds will be in the centre of the flowers, just need to wait until they dry out
