Annual alyssum survived winter

Posted: 13/03/2017 at 20:55

does it look as though it's making lots of new growth or just hanging on?

Lots of the plants we grow as annuals are really perennial but not very hardy or long-lived, allyssum may be one of these. 

What plant is this?

Myth on coffee grounds?????

I think you'd have to drink a lot of coffee for it to have any effect at all. I sling the dregs from the cafetiere on the garden, nothing changes.

roots? a " best before date" ?

See original post

 roots crossed my mind Hosta.

I only grow Echium vulgare and something Dove gave me. I think some of the others wouldn't make it here.

But I hadn't noticed anything distinctive about the roots of these and would be interested to know what the big ones look like.
