I went to a GC this morning and might have seen this plant. Not pure Rehmannia elata but a hybrid between that and R. glutinosa

everything must be best sown fresh. It's what plants do

Growing acers from seed

If you leave the seeds outside to stratify naturally you can't leave them too long. They germinate when they're ready. That way there are no problems with where to grow them on. They never need artificial heat, maybe a cold frame or cold GH after germination and in the worst of the first winter.

Talkback: Growing Verbena bonariensis from seed

I sow thm in late winter when the cold GH heats up when it's sunny but is still very cold otherwise. This seems to work.

A few id's please

That's a long list, I may get muddled

1 is Rhus typhina

2 Houttuynia cordata 'Chamaeleon'  

3 is a heuchera but I don't know which

4 is a Crocosmia, I don't think it's red enough for Lucifer

5 is a potentilla

6 Himalayan Balsam

7 Houttuynia cordata

8 an oxalis, someone will know which one

 

help identify this plant

Have you a photo of the plant growing and one where we can see the shape of the flowers

A case of mistaken identity?

Whatever it is looks as though it's been there some years. Unless the old growth belongs to something else

Cherries that look like plums?

Posted: 16/08/2015 at 13:36

Years ago I had a tree I bought as Morus nigra, mulberry. I always had by doubts, it came into leaf too early and the leaves seemed the wrong shape. But I had never seen a mulberry except in books, (no interweb then), and thought I could trust the company that sent it. So I watched it grow to enormous height, sucker across the lawn and eventually produce white flowers and tiny, sharp, little cherries
