I would cut the seed heads off as they don't grow true from seed. If they survive slugs and snails when they pop up again in the Spring you should have a good plant

Verbena Bonariensis

Mine are still going strong from last year and they also have fairly thick stems. They seem to take quickly from cuttings so it's worth having a go just in case the plant doesn't overwinter

I grew some trailing phlox this year, tapestry mix I think it's called, would be good for baskets

Are these aquilegia seedlings?

Lots of free plants there, I don't think I've ever had them self seed.

Why?

A Donald Trump thread, missed that one. No idea of it's content but my best guess is that it was going down a well trod path here of unpleasantness in the guise of political debate so the moderators removed it.

Lovely plant, I haven't had one of these for years. I'd go for a bigger pot and add in some support. It will give off aerial roots, try and tuck those into the soil as they grow down

I've always found Jacobs ladder really easy to grow from seed, sow them now outside and you should have flowers for next year.

I've treated them to some time outside today madpenguin. They have had a wipe with damp kitchen roll and a tidy up. Had a go at some leaf cuttings too I'd go for taller narrower ones if possible Joyce to try and prevent them getting top heavy.

You've done a really good job Laura The great thing about creating a garden is that you can move things if you are not happy where they are. Enjoy the fruits of your labour
