Bit early to tell, could it be an Antirrhinum?  What else have you sown, could give a clue.

Hydrangea desease ?

Posted: 30/04/2017 at 09:33

I walked down to the bottom of my garden yesterday and found the hydrangeas there just the same, I don't usually dead head/prune back until end of April for that very reason but needed to get on. 

Now I'll have to go over them again and cut the damaged bits off.  Same thing happened a few years ago, that's when I decided to leave cutting back till later, oh well, more haste......πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

Its happened to a lot of people this year.

I've not sown mine yet. Next week, hopefully.

See original post

 Don't sow cosmos, I've got hundreds of them ready to be pricked out, I'll have to dump them soon. You're very welcome to them. X

Problem with my magnolia

If you had to replace 6 others, it would seem it's a soil problem, nurseries don't usually give you bad plants,  garden centres maybe, but not nurseries. did they do a soil test before planting, they prefer acid soil. I'm sure they must have done, couldn't see a nursery just going ahead with the job, just a thought,

I grow everything from seed and every year I am as excited as the last. I know it's a lot of work but I am rewarded with hundreds of plants that I could never ever dream of buying. It's definitely the waiting game with bienials and perennials, but worth it for me, they never cease to amaze me when they do finally flower.

The next batch should be ok if you wait until this cold spell is over, don't hold out much hope for the previous ones though,

Those in your garden are Spanish, much bigger, thick scrappy leaves and English ones don't come in tall white colours.
