Posted: 20/05/2016 at 13:53

I'd just sow them, and leave them outside to germinate when they do.

Jasmine looks likely.

What's wrong with these?

Posted: 20/05/2016 at 13:45

Not good at all. 

any chance they could have have a touch of weedkiller, even if not yours?

They clematis looks a bit like some of my plants when Aggro Chemicals have been sprayed in the field next door

magnification just gives a big blurred image.

whatever it is I wouldn't plant it out yet, it looks starved and sad. Pot it on and see what develops

I have a theory that the over-tidy, clear it up, spray it, kill it, attitude of many gardeners destroys a lot of the easier to kill life in the garden leaving it at the mercy of the real bullies. Left to itself it all balances out and nothing reigns supreme.

There is HF here, 2 old willows died of it and possibly a clematis and a ceanothus (inconclusive).

Everything else just goes along, tree paeonies, lots of shrubs and trees. Native trees have probably learned to live with it

Plant ID please

yes, keep them in their pots for now. Don't be alarmed when they die back, it's normal, they'll leaf up again in autumn

Paeony. Is this one worth keeping?

Posted: 19/05/2016 at 22:43

I don't sell them wakeshine but I put a few paeony seeds on the seed swap most years.

I have a minute red one, only about 6'' tall, a couiple of years or 3 old and it's got two flowers, they're not usually as quick as that. 4 years minimum I think but no real records
