What are these?

Posted: 26/06/2017 at 08:47

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.

Pond - Preformed or Natural

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.

Hi Perki😀 Surely if they grow from seed they need dead heading, it's only the sterile ones that don't need dead heading.

We bought liner, it carries a lifetime guarantee, we got this one from here. There's a chart to help you work out how much you need, it was very easy to lay, far better than the pre formed ones. We used it brown side out but that's your choice. 

What is this succulent please?

It was me who sent you the False Freesia (Freesia laxa).  It flowers reliably from year one. I also grow a beautiful hybrid, Freesia laxa Joan Evans. I'll have lots of seed by the end of the Summer. 

See original post

 Yes! I couldn't remember , I have loads of them now as I collected my own seeds from them as well, very pretty little things, I was amazed how they had made those little corms so quickly, but then a dahlia seed makes a tuber in the first year. All plants are different.

i would love some seeds later if you have some spare, thank you.

i know those blue flowers are not related, will have to wait a bit for those.  It took a while for the Monbretia  to flower from seeds.   

Confusion in understanding growing instructions

Posted: 24/06/2017 at 00:56

I do live halfway up a hill in Devon, 960' up.

It can be difficult growing things here, there's always a wind and for every 100metrs up, you can knock one degree c off the temperature. 

I just grow what I like, all from seeds and hope for the best. I've got shade loving plants in full sun, sun lovers in shade, it all seems to work whichever way I do it.

Erigeron grows wild everywhere in Cornwall, just hanGH's on stone walls, it won't grow for me here though.

I pick mine out when they're small, just like any other plant from seed, they thicken out right from the start then.
