Sounds good Dove.

Dove is working on an ID for one of mine. Might be giraldiana

But it might not.

I bought it from a roadside stall years ago, no label, pretty pale yellow flowers, not too crowded. I thought it might be  F. suspensa but Dove says it's not like hers. 

What do you think Jane? 



Climbing Fuchsia 'Lady Boothby'

Posted: 23/03/2016 at 14:02

Fuchsia can get long and lanky but they have no equipment to climb anything, no twining or tendrils or thorns to hang on by

So technically they're not climbing, without help they're probably ground cover

Are these weeds?

I think the 3rd is a willowherb but not rosebay.

Not so many people have F. giraldiana though. Forsythia x intermedia (and its long string of cultivars) is much more common. 

Most people (including me ) haven't a clue which one they've got.

I don't find them happy to be sown in trays and pricked/planted out Watery. They're happier to grow where they grow. 

But it's interesting how difficult it can be to establish some very easy plants. There are many I've failed with that I'm told are easy
