Very exposed here, if you want more just wait for seeds to ripen on the plant then catch them, you have to be quick, they ripen and pop. Sow as any other seeds, every one will germinate then prick out into little pots. 

Please help in identifing these plants.

2nd one looks like Meadowsweet. Although it looks a bit to white, the leaves are the same.

I didn't know they liked shade, I've got three different ones, plus the thug type,  and they're all in full sun all day. I haven't got any shade, they'll have to put up with it.

Anomatheca laxa,  False Freesia, I've got lots of those, courtesy of someone on the seed swap thread, you can save the seeds and they will flower and make a bulb in the first year. Very pretty, all shades from white to your dark colour.. 

they don't over winter here so I keep them in pots, I dug the bulbs up and planted them again in the Spring, when I also sowed their seeds.

Help! pepper growing problems!

Have a look on the undersides of the leaves, you may have white fly or similar pests. They shouldn't be starved already, not at that size. Looking at the way the new top leaves are coming out crinkled I'd say more pest than starved.

I can beat you there NB, I was out there by 5.30 this morning, it's amazing what you can get done in the early hours, I'd rather be up and doing than laying in bed wasting time not sleeping,😀

Obs, I had some seed too , but read it can take up to 7 years to flower. 

Life is too short for that sort of commitment. 

See original post

 Mine all germinated well, but have been slow to grow on, I'm not expecting flowers this year either, so I think you're right,

What are these?

Judging by the green leaves I think they are those drumstick Alliums, but starved in the pot and they won't grow laying out on the surface, if you can put them together in a group in the garden, about four to six inches deep, they'll flower next year.

I would like to see the link to the site that said it's a killer weed.

I wouldn't say £20.00 for the lot is expensive and there's also a 10% voucher available .

its guaranteed to last, good value I think.
