Possibly Guizotia abyssinica. Is it near bird feeders?

They're native hardy plants, don't put them in a GH, sow them and leave them outside.

they need to mature on the plant before it's cut, then they dry out.  The birds will probably be happy to eat them in their immature state

The advantage of the native plant species is as food for the native animal species, especially the larvae of native insects. 

I grow a selection of native plants and you're right Redwing, they're not the showiest but they suit me, my garden and its inhabitants.

Help needed to identify white 'balls' in field

Posted: 21/10/2016 at 18:30

late to this one, sorry

What's the green thing that some of these are in, what are the white balls on?

all my seedlings have come up outdoors already?

sowing seeds as soon as they're ready is what plants do and has to be the best way for hardy plants.. They sort themselves out with regard to germination time

How has this site changed your gardening?

It hasn't changed my gardening much, I still nurture what others call weeds, encourage wildlife that some would spray with insecticide, grow thugs, shun chemicals, have grass with extras, pots of germinating seeds everywhere, break all the rules. All much the same.
