Kniphofia

I tend to sow fresh as well, things always germinate better fresh, but then if they germinate quickly you have very young plants to see through the winter. OK if you have a heated GH to protect them.

I don't know if kniphofia go dormant but they won't need cold to break the dormancy or they'd have died out by now.

Could you identify this dying berry bush/tree?

Dfingers, I fear It's too late for me. Too many years have passed and too much still to learn. 

Plus every time I learn something new I forget something old

Hi Philippa, yes St Johns Wort was H. perfoliatum 

and Rose of Sharon was H calcyninum, the creepy invasive one.

Now both names seem to be used for anything in the genus. Or maybe it's just the sites I visit that don't know what's what.

I blame the likes of Wikipaedia

Day Lilies leaves turning yellow, too soon?

Hack it right back before next spring, It improves the look 100%

That's Hypericum androsaemum, Known as St Johns Wort or Rose of Sharon now with every other hypericum.

How anyone knows which plant they're discussing is a mystery to me

 

Anyone able to ID this plant for me, please.

It looks like one of those sugar loaf chicories. But I don't think the wild chicory has leaves like that. Maybe in the first year though, someone will know
