Mystery plant

Mine are dwindling. I think their site has become too shady. I must sling some seed somewhere better.

Stefan, they don't like clay soil too much, can you mix in some grit for your next try?

and a nice sunny patch, then let them get on with it.

Ronnie, a lot af alliums seed themselves to a point where you wish they'd stop

Some take longer than others to flower from seed and the giant flowered cultivars tend never to be as big in future generations

Can say no definitely to white bryony, that has a root like a parsnip.

It doesn't look like a hop plant as I remember them but I haven't seen one lately

Where are you and what sort of soil have you got Marco?

Growing Alliums

They're very much plant and forget plants Stefan and don't like to be too wet. They don't need watering. Purple Sensation is one I've found reliable and Allium christophii. Just plant them in the autumn and wait.

how close would you plant Daphne Eternal Fragrance to one another?

I have had a D. tangutica for many years now and it's still thriving. During that time I've lost 2 odoras and 2 mezereums.  Laureola seems to survive as well

Any Ideas?

More klikely from the compost than the seed packet Jimmy. I'm nuturing my stray until it flowers

You need to introduce another species for yellow Rozie. A.vulgaris alone doesn't do yellow. You could grow longifolia or canadensis from seed or buy a yellow one to extend the gene pool.
