No doubt about it Brenda, willow
2nd one today
I'm pretty sure it's a willow sapling. The bark, the leaf shape and that hint of orange in the leaves is all willow
Digitalis need light, don't cover them. I've germinated them from spring and autumn sowings, no heat.
Your post reminds me that however many I may have germinated in the past, there are none to be seen in the garden now
A lot of perennials will flower late in the first season if you sow them early but they won't now. It's a good time to sow perennials though. They'll flower next year. I used Chiltern Seeds to build up my collection, they list the quick flowering ones
Then, for later on, they have some much more interesting seeds
I think it's an aucuba
I'm sorry but nothing will regrow, they don't have resting buds waiting to take over from dead bit like a lot of deciduous trees. What's brown now will stay brown.
leaves suggest Welsh poppy, perennial but see when it flowers
MINE ARE RATHER WEEDY SPECIMENS. PRETTY IN THEIR WAY BUT NOT DISPLAY PLANTS.
MAYBE I DON'T NURTURE THEM PROPERLY
Solanum dulcamara? I wouldn't have thought the flowers of that would make much of a show.
Would like to see a photo.
