Not what it looks like

It's a phytolacca, maybe not americana, hard to tell from the picture and I don't know the other species well enough. There are 2 distinct plants around that come labelled P.a. The differences are in the leaves, one has pale, almost white, veining.

Many thanks for reviving this thread Caroline. I've been searching for it everywhere. I saved the instructions to a file but the computer died

This is perennial but tender. If you can protect it from cold it will survive

Anemone nemorosa (wood anemone)

I'd forgotten the need for fresh seed there Berghill, I sow everything fresh so it just happens.

For the trickier ones I often buy a plant and seed on from there. You can buy Anemone nemorosa in spring from places like Potterton's Nursery Snoodle.

You can sow them now and leave them outside or sow them in late winter rosemummy. They're very easy and flower very quickly. Half my last lot flowered in the first year from seed.

The most prolific germination of rose seeds I've had was after making rosehip wine. Boiling water poured on the hips, soaked for about a week and then tipped on the garden. Next spring, a mini forest of rose seedlings

Identify please.

It's all about taste and style of gardening isn't it?

I love to have the wild plants and the wildlife that goes with them.

I was in a GC on Sunday and watched what people were buying, lot sof which I wouldn't consider for my garden

Identify please.

I'll have another go at transplanting mine to where I want it this winter. I think it's a lovely flower
