What seed are you sowing now ?

Posted: 25/08/2016 at 22:12

I've always started cosmos in pots but they're not something I grow often, The californian poppies need to been sown where they grow. They're set back by transplanting.

Packets of wildflowers are not necessarily UK wildflowers and are not always hardy.

looks a bit compact for that one to me PJ

But I may have mis-judged the size

wakeshine, you don't need a GH

Primroses, at once if not sooner, outside in pots, shady place will germinate in spring. Aquilegias, now, will germinate quickly or in spring. Don't bring these indoors whatever the weather. they don't need heat at any time.

Calendula and cornflower are hardy and can be sown in the garden now. cosmos and california poppy are not, wait til spring. Californian poppy best direct sown.

What's in the wildflower mixes?

I've thrown assorted digitalis and aquilegias about the garden but nothing much controlled.

some more shots of that yellow one might help (or not) close up of leaves/buds/seedheads, anything

I don't think it's an anthemis 

Plant ID please

re suckering, low branches will root down, maybe look like suckers.

I'd cut it back, more than a pinch out. One spindly stem reaching the required height is not a hedge. 

cut it back to just above a leaf, all branches, til it no longer has any use for a cane support. When it's grown more stems, with several leaves,  pinch those out as well

Anyone know what this weed is?

It's a persistent one but, as you say, not JKW
