Verbena bonariensis

I think you might be pushing it a bit. I've only grown them once from seed and they took an age to germinate. Once they have though they do grow really quickly.

Anyone can help me identify these?

Creeping buttercup, my most hated plant. It's a weed and can spread really quickly

Honey Bee swarms

Great pictures and reading. So the bees come out of the hive in a swarm and then have a look around for another one?

Anyone done any gardening today?

Your veg garden looks great BusyLizzie. Did a little bit this evening, potted on some statice, cornflowers and moved things about a bit. Planted birds foot trefil and an arabis. Could do with a bit more sun

The photos are really useful as I've been given to little seedlings but never have grown them before.

I did put mine in my frame the first night I had them but that nearly killed them so I brought them back in and they recovered. I think I should have hardened them off first.

Tomatoes in a cold GH

Not an expect veg growing by any means and I don't like toms. My partner grows them and he has seed that has germinated in the greenhouse. He just keeps the door shut, they seem to be doing ok

Help/advice needed

That looks like a shit job, showed my partner and his first reaction was what are the  pipes doing outside?  I would get that checked out, doesn't look right at all

Is it possible to divide Sweet Williams?

I do the same as well butterfuly, sometimes just can't be bothered so they are all go in together.

Not sure why yours didn't bloom Dimwit. A lot of the plants you buy have been nurtured to bloom early. A couple of my plants are now starting to form the very beginnings of flowers.

Sometimes when I've been a bit too enthusastic about pinching out the plant has flowered less well

Just wanted to share :)

Well done, will be growing forget me nots later this year.

Gardening is so much fun and with these they will self seed so you will never be without them. All that from a packet of seeds
