Hello diggingdoris,  Thanks, glad my plant knowledge is increasing. The leaves are very similar to the hollyhocks that I grow. Still can't remember where where it came from though, but thats the great thing about  plants. It's very healthy and doing well.

Thanks Gary & dander,

Fox-and-cubs, what a great name.

So I wasn't far off. thinking it was a hollyhock. Can't remember where is came from. bit something tells me I planted it.  A mallow? Something in my brain says is that related to veg such as a cucumbers or something similiar.

Just out of interest what do you mean dander by the weather has fooled it? It's been very wet and windy and none of my other holly hocks are no where near to developing flowers. This one was planted outside the garden

Thanks again

freesias from seed help!

Hello Gloucestergirl13, I'm with you on the seed sowing.

I love growing stuff from seed, nothing better than seeing/picking flowers that you have grown.  You can get fantastic volume and great results. I'm in my 2nd year of doing this.

As for freesias, I thought that you buy freesias bulbs rather than seeds. Although I dont have them in my garden. Maybe have a look at bulbs

Perennial Geraniums

Posted: 10/06/2012 at 19:31

Over the last couple of months I've bought a few perennials geraniums ( I think). They are doing well, and have flowers. I have noticed though that that some of their leaves are turning a yellow/red colour.

The first one I bought, a Geranium bohemicum did the same thing but is now looking very healthy and flowering well.

Is this something I should be worried about? All of these plants are in partial shade, but in fairly heavy soil. Just wondered what causes the leaves to turn colour.

Helllo.

Would love to know what these 2 plants are.

The first the orange one, I'm guessing it's a weed but I like it,also smells good. Does it have any benefits for wild life?

 The 2nd, I thought it was some sort of holly hock but now I'm not sure

 Hello, here it is- I think it's some sort of Oestopernom ( not spelled correctly)

Sickly smelling plant

Thanks happymarion, you have identified what I have been trying to get rid of for over a year. I've been painting on weedkiller everytime I see a bit of it so a lot more under control now. Absolutley stinks,  looks ugly and incrediably invasive.

Hello FloBear, me too

I've just started out in my garden, been here for 18 months. It's already changed so much.

I guess what this programme confirms to me that all wildlife is dependant on habitat, be it it insects, birds & mammals.

So I will continue  to plant big ( and think small) so that I attract any wildlife that visit my garden

 

 

 

 

 

to think small ( and plant big)and who know where that will lead
