If you take cuttings the plants will be the same, they are bits of the same plant. Changes can occur with seed raised plants
sounds like a great place you've got there kathie
builders sand isn't the same as sharp sand, It has a softer feel and is just right to form cakes with addition of cement and stick the bricks together really well.
the leaves look like Kerria japonica but the flower stalk in the first pic looks a bit long
The aquarium stuff is expensive LB
sharp sand is fine when that's what you want, I often use it. But I also want horticultural grit which is somewhat less fine, good for overwintering the cold germinators and putting a layer on top. I don't find sand so good for that
This site has a reputation for being tricky with photos. Might be worth sending pic of the leaves unless they've died back. I can often ID a plant better from the leaves than the flowers
Is it? I'll have to look at that. Thank you.
I've got some tagged RHS at the moment, bought locally, but it's a bit chunky.
I've had that one in the past Lb but nobody seems to stock it round here now. Delivery charges would be high for that weight of stuff
