Planting species tulip

Posted: 27/09/2014 at 10:37

Species tulips are the wild ones, before they've been hybridised and bred for the biggest, brightest and best. (Or worst depending how you look at it)

Give me a species every time

Eryngium seeds

Eryngiums germinate well sown now, outside or a cold GH or cold frame. They'll either germi way. That stops the p[rocess.

If you've got plenty you can direct sow. They self seed in my garden but get swamped by weeds

Not sure what to do with early growers

I should think you're right re which alliums they are.

I have some alliums in leaf, can't remember which they are, neither of yours

I'd get the foxgloves out of those cells are either in the ground or larger pots. Those should flower next year

There speaks one who has Digitalis ferruginea thoroughly pot bound in 2 litre pots and still not planted out

Hi Matt the ones on the right are the foxgloves

What sort of alliums are they? The leaves look very long and narrow

Rescued this from family garden that's being sold - was it worth keeping?

I think that's a Lysimachia, possibly L. ciliata. It doesn't look quite dark enough for 'Firecracker' but something like that.

Invasive. On my dry soil it never looks much but can be quite attractive

You can put some snakes head fritillaries round the pond Fishy

Nettle jungle

They're very persistent. Glyphosate kills them but once they've seeded there's an endless supply of new plants which come up to flower and seed very quickly.

They can't survived being regularly mowed though. I have far too many nettles but none in mown grass

Hi Matt, I'd get the foxgloves planted out but not the lupins

Is this a courgette?

Posted: 26/09/2014 at 19:13

It's a courgette/marrow. Might as well chuck it now, no chance of fruit before frost
