Newbie unsure what plant this is

Posted: 08/06/2014 at 22:01

Maybe fishy, it's an old one and I haven't seenit in GCs lately. The one potsand pansies mentioned, Rozanne, has a longer flowering season.

All the hardy geraniums are pretty tough, If you buy them in flower you can see what you're getting.

Can anyone tell me what these are please?

the top one is Euphorbia lathyris, caper spurge

Could we see a bit more of the other one, the leaves maybe and a view of the whole plant.

At first sight it doesn't look like something you would support with canes on an alotment

white "mould" on my seedling trays

Not if they haven't germinated, there's nothing to harden off. I leave most of my perennials either outside or in an unheated GH all winter. Hardy perennials never need heat and some won't germinate if they don't get cold at some point

there's a lot of info on seed germination on this site

If you like it, yes leave it. If you don't take those bulbils off and don't let it seed

Eryngium does well with an autumn /winter start in the cold. I think they'd all be better somewhere cooler than a GH at this time of year. I have my ungerminated perennials lined up on the shady side of the house outside. From around 11am they're in the shade

 moist atmosphere will be the cause. I cover my perennial seeds with grit and that helps avoid the moulds and the algaes.

Hardy perennials won't want it too hot and any that haven't germinated might do better outside. It would certainly help with the mould problem.

Hard to say whether it will do any harm but it could overwealm the seedlings as they come though and if it's too wet they might rot.

Which perennials are you growing?

They always do better if you just let them get on with it don't they
