Any idea as to what this might grow into?

Found these whilst weeding and have no idea what they are,  look a bit like walnuts

Thanks all

overwintered in greenhouse - but now what?

Hi Dave, Great idea about the box - do you think it would be too dark for them in the shed?

Hi again

Just moved my geraniums into the greenhouse for the winter -  just wondering if it is best to cut them down, or just leave them as I did last year and let them continue to flower in the greenhouse over the winter.  Was wondering if by cutting them down they might grow even better next spring.

Also running out of space in the greenhouse, will chrysanthemums survive outdoors or possibly in the shed?  Don't want to loose them - not at £8 a plant from Dobbies

Many Thanks all

I will pop it in the greenhouse and see if it will survive winter

I think it looked better smaller, not very  keen on it in flower

Think I had some cyclamens too -  will these overwinter too?

The above plant come in a pot without a label,  It grew tall and flowered this summer.  Now wondering what to do with it, will it overwinter still in an outdoor pot, or do I need to put it in a greenhouse? Can I split it? Or is it just a one summer plant?

Thanks in Advance



seeds or pelleted seeds

Thanks for your reply lyn,  have just been reading up on  weevil - wish I hadn't - hate bugs and creepies.  This might explain why I have one basket of begonias still in flower and the other one everything is dead.

I have a greenhouse also heated propagator and have just purchased 4 easy fill baskets so at least 16 plants for them and then 4 wall mounted baskets.

If you have any suggested as to what would look good with them that would be great.

Used Fuchsias and begonias this year - but not very successful - infact  looked pathetic  (a few of them are still alive - moved them into the greenhouse to see if they will over winter - not sure if they will or not

As you can tell I don't know anything about plants

Thought I might try Bacopa in my hanging baskets - is it better to start with seeds, pelleted seeds or cheat and just by plug plants?

Thanks in Advance

Plant I.D. App

Link does not seem to work.


But I'd love to find an app that would identify plants just by uploading a picture.  In the meantime, people on here seem to be very helpful doing that

thanks for the reply Verdun,  it was just a thought as there seems to be lots of them for sale in the supermarkets at the moment.

If I pinch them out once they start growing again next year would that stop them growing so leggy or is that just the nature of those particular plant?
