What are these I potted up?

Posted: 11/04/2014 at 10:43

Hmmm, I labelled one pot per group or so I thought. Doesn't help when I move the pots around and some die anyway. I did label lots of plants in the garden but those have all vanished! There's another unidentified cluster in a pot, straight grass like thing, must be a bulb but not flowered. I'll just wait for that one to surprise me as it's ok where it is.

Thanks Adam, I think you've got it, spiraea sounds familiar and have put the other one next to philadelphus and is definitely the same!

Phew. Thanks everyone.

Lovely Fairy, it's on the list.

money or ratbags Lily? Unfortunately they do seem to stick together don't they? 

Kef - sure last time I looked the dicentra was almost invisible and now it's quite a bush with flower buds - sneaky! Might take lavender stoeches (didn't look up spelling, sorry) out of GH today.

Help!! Can anyone I.D this plant?

Mines also a vote for osteospermum, especially if the foliage has a strong smell.

Phlox thank you

No duetzia or cornus.

Have philadelphus but don't remember taking a cutting, will be nice if I did.

Vebena bon yes, but others are much bigger, think this was one of the mollycoddled ones.

one left - the long one with green stem, it's on the tip of my tongue - might begin with s or v. late ish flowering, about 60cm tall, pink or blue spikes of flowers, aghhh I'm sure it is, can't even find a photo from last year.

OOO really Nut? I do have some of those, wondered where they were!

Is the big one a salvia or a phlox or do I need to think some more?

And something that grows tall, pink fluffy flowers? One of the spindley ones.

It all looks lovely Sprig and so well planned, you're obviously enjoying yourself as well. What else is as rewarding as the things we create and love. Hope you get time to sit and relax in your garden as well as all the work you put in.
