Help identiying this plant please.

Easily grown from seeds and you can't get rid of it once you've got it.  The bees go mad for it.

Plant IDs please

I think they are  Echinops,  and the bottom ragwort.

Struggling indoor garden

Whatever plants they are, they should be outside by now, probably dried out at the roots.

It's not Phlox Or Michaelmas Daisy.  Can't tell what though with purple over it.

Bidens is a patio plant, they are only annuals, not suitable for ponds.

What is this plant?

I've got one like that, bought for £1.99 in Parkers sale a few years ago, its called Strawberry Fields. I think you have to prune it right after flowering, ready for new growth to flower next year,  that's what I do.

If you just think about what happens in the natural process and they will germinate. They drop off the plant, fall to the ground and grow next Spring, just put the seeds in a tray or pot, put somewhere sheltered and wait for Spring, no propagator in the wild..

Nice for the birds? 

Surprise tomatoe seedlings

Tomato waste is about the only thing I don't put in the compost, drives me mad picking them out of the borders. Your home made compost doesn't get hot enough to kill them. Oh, and potato peelings.😀

I have a lovery ruby red Weigela. I think camellias have a short flowering time, usually late winter/early Spring  then there's a bare plant all year.
