Geum Lady Stratheden

Posted: 03/07/2015 at 22:51

Is it?. What's the red one called?

But the yellow bit looks really insignificant for a cultivar. 

Maybe the red one is a new cultivar

Is this wild garlic???/

If you sowed this year your wild garlic will still be very small, like a little blade of grass. Not like fat hen which is an annual and has to get on with flowering and seeding.

You might find some ramsons round the fat hen

what next

Nikki, when the pods are ripe tip the seeds out. But you need do nothing, they will seed themselves

Geum Lady Stratheden

Posted: 03/07/2015 at 22:27

Lady Stratheden is a cultivar derived from a wild geum. The wild one probably looked more like your yellow one. I wouldn't let the yellow bit seed or it will come even more like the wild one and be called a weed.

Have you checked it's all on one plant?, not two roots in there?

There are the perennial ones called oriental poppies, you can cut those back, leaves as well and more leaves will grow.

and the opium poppies, the annuals with light green leaves

and the ones that are deived from field poppies in varoious colours, also annual.

the last two can be left to seed or pulled up

what next

What sort of poppies are they?

stratification

Posted: 03/07/2015 at 20:55

If you research where each plant comes from you will get some clues. No tender plant from a hot country will need cold stratification for its seeds. It's about replicating what happens naturally.

Is this a weed or wild flower

Prunella vulgaris, self-heal, I think though it looks very blue rather than purple
