a couple of oddities

Posted: 29/09/2016 at 10:21

Can anyone ID a couple of oddities seen on our seed compost/coffee/sticky bun trip yesterday.

The first had very few basal leaves but what there were looked succulent. In an outdoor display but not necessarily hardy. About 5 inches tall at this stage but might not be as tall as it gets

The other was in an indoor display in a darkish site

The pointy leaf on the right in the second photo isn't part of it

I agree with B-L and now I needn't type all that

If there's nothing there it won't matter

 most people leave the cutting back of penstemons til spring. I've already shortened mine to stop them thrashing about in the winter gales

Yes, they need all the light they can get.

if you add organic matter, muck, compost, the worms will turn up on their own.You'll get a better lawn as well

start from the camera icon and make your photo much smaller. I reduce the size of mine to 30%

slug worms probably, there are quite a few species, I had Cherry Slug Worm, Caliroa cerasi, never seen any of the others.
