Plants ID please

Wanna be, could you do some more photos please?

You'll be able to tell nightshade from physalis soon. Nightshade will have berry-like fruit and physalis will have inflated papery cases and the fruit inside. Orange cases for chinese lanterns, brownish for the edible ones.

Anything that wasn't there last year and is all over the garden now is an annual. Beware of letting it seed this year

 

 

perenial seeds

Hi Snoodle, which perennials are you growing, some need to be chilled to break dormancy. Astrantias, aquilegias, aconitums, clematis, all germinate much more reliably if the have a cold spell.

Lots of other too.

Have a look at this, http://theseedsite.co.uk/   on germination.

Hi DW

I haven't given up on this one yet so I've copied  the last photo to this thread.

Are the stems round or square or smooth or bristly?

And are they hardening off or fleshy or firm and green

There are several plants that have yellow roots, berberis and stinging nettles for two. Not suggesting those as ID though

Fungus on stems is rarely a good sign. Have you got a photo?

Have I missed it all or will there be more tonight?

ID please!

Have any of the spireas got anything to offer apart from flowers? I like a good shaped bush or attractive leaves or berries in addition to flowers?

1 is one of the nightshades, probably Solanum nigrum.

I don't recognise the climber

Asters

Sometimes when you have a mixed packet of something one colour germinates much more quickly or looks stronger than others. So they get pricked out and grown on. The empty looking seed tray with all the ungerminated other colours in it is discarded
