Mystery plant

Posted: 09/06/2015 at 19:55

Sanjy I quarantine stuff that i have doubts about. Separate into the smallest viable pieces and grow on in a pot for the summer. If nothing appears I plant it out.

Jo, I'll try and be more efficient in saving seed generally this year. I was a slacker last year

A wild flower

Not sure that's legume

It might be this

known as climbing corydalis.

A wonderful thing, the internet. I had something that looked like that years ago and never did find out what it was. Today I googled white climbing corydalis, and there it was, my plant, and maybe yours?

I think its best to start a new thread ifyou have a question though.

Otherwise some people will be answering your question and some will be answering the question at the top of the thread.

Mine are dwindling. I think their site has become too shady. I must sling some seed somewhere better.

Growing Alliums

Stefan, they don't like clay soil too much, can you mix in some grit for your next try?

and a nice sunny patch, then let them get on with it.

Ronnie, a lot af alliums seed themselves to a point where you wish they'd stop

Some take longer than others to flower from seed and the giant flowered cultivars tend never to be as big in future generations

Mysterious Rhizome

Can say no definitely to white bryony, that has a root like a parsnip.

It doesn't look like a hop plant as I remember them but I haven't seen one lately

Where are you and what sort of soil have you got Marco?

Growing Alliums

They're very much plant and forget plants Stefan and don't like to be too wet. They don't need watering. Purple Sensation is one I've found reliable and Allium christophii. Just plant them in the autumn and wait.

how close would you plant Daphne Eternal Fragrance to one another?

I have had a D. tangutica for many years now and it's still thriving. During that time I've lost 2 odoras and 2 mezereums.  Laureola seems to survive as well

Any Ideas?

More klikely from the compost than the seed packet Jimmy. I'm nuturing my stray until it flowers
