Defintaley pinch the tops out, the more you do the bushier they become

Echinacea plants

I find them tricky plants until they are established and they take a while to do that.  Sounds like you've got some good healthy plants. Last years plants have put on a great show this year here

I have one remaining alive plant from seeds sown earlier this year and it's tiny but I will be keeping it in my cold frames over winter

 

Prayer plant(Rabbits Track)

I know them as prayer plants, I've seen some about in the garden centres. Not sure if it's just me but I don't see a lot of houseplants for sale anymore

the sun has helped have lots of flower spikes and seed pods forming

Hello, not done a lot of seed collecting this year but will have a look in my tin to see what I've got. Gardengirl this looks like like a lovely plant, do you think you would have any left? What are you looking for?

Had a very nice time looking back on that thread nut My cleomes were great this year and the verbenias bon and my rudebekias are still flowering

All 3 of mine flowered, they grew one flowerspike each plant, can't say that I was that impressed with the flowers, didn't seem to last very long but I do love the leaves. I left mine to die back so didn't deadhead them. Think they flowered around the same time as yours

Thanks very much Bob, think your right, had a look today and it had gone, learn't that they pupate underground.

Not sure if it's just the season but have been gardening for wildlife for a couple of years and have definatley seen more catepilliars this year

Good Evening FORKERS

Dove,four day weekends are great! I work part time so always have these now, lovely way to start to start no work!

The samples look really good gardengirl have fun trying them out

Been out and bought some spring bulbs, I love them....... such an easy and cheap way to keep adding. Got some grape hycaniths and some of the two tone purple ones as well as an aldi job lot of crocus and some bare root wallflowers. When you see them in the Spring, makes you feel very happy that you spent the time planting them

Growing from seed is great, been doing it a couple of years now and it's amazing how many plants you can get from a few seeds. Learnt loads on here, so always ask the question
