Most of mine are in the shade. Those in the sun don't look so good. I have an orange poppy whose name I've forgotten for the sunny dry bits

Mistaken identity

Not hard to tell a pepper from a cabbage so if it looks like a cabbage it probably is one. Cabbage leaves have that distinctive cabbagy smell, are there enough leaves to test one?

Verdun must have missed this one, he'd know better than me. I do whatever seems right at the time

All those power tools that need to be carried are too heavy for me before they pick anything up

You're right Dave and Trish. Lots of planting for butterflies that will be happy with almost anything. But the caterpillar stage is called a pest and not catered for.

My rosebay willowherb is coming along nicely

I love them (except the red ones)

Is this Arum Lily?

They look very different Bridget, these are what fidget said they are.

I love those big purple ones, they don't smell for too long and they're impressive to look at. I have a feeling mine aren't going to flower this year

Meconopsis cambrica. They do come in orange and red, naturally or not, I couldn't say. Avoid the red, they're not as nice as ordinary field poppies, Papaver rhoeas.

They seed about a bit Panda

Sometimes if I buy something that's very potbound I pot it on and nurture it until it's just filling the new pot and them plant it out
