ah, don't get annoyed aym. If you're stretching the boundaries a bit there will be some failures. I soon forget the failures.

aym, grit on top of the compost does away with the algae/fungal thing.

Can anyone help identify this "berry" tree?

you describe them as berries, this suggests something small. How big are they?

Are these aquilegia seedlings?

Posted: 06/08/2016 at 17:16

definitely last year's seeds, this year's have barely been shed. 

Fuchsia not producing any berries?

the berries ripen to blue/black but they don't start like that.


I don't know if all the hybrid fuchsias produce seed but I don't think you'd need 2 different sorts

Illumination pink, yes, I've seen that in GCs this year. Not a stylish plant, just in your face pink

Disappointing plants

i don't think I've ever cultivated anything properly


but the 2 ladybird mentions struggle here until they die. I think monarda needs more moisture in the soil.


If I look in my database of plants/seeds grown there's a lot that have dropped out of sight.

Was that one of the variegated ones, 'Flamingo' or something? Lack of water and hot sun is the usual summer problem for those.
