Cowslip dying?

Posted: 10/05/2014 at 16:30

I've got vulgaris/veris crosses. Most of them are too big and 'cultivated' in appearance for the wild parts of the garden where they grow.

and you're right Jim, if they have a common name it might as well be cowslip

Calling Mrs P - or anyone who can grow Verbena bonariensis from seed

I would say yes, very slow to start but then they get away nicely.

Some people will be envious that you got them to germinate at all.

Young oak leaves make a nice wine, very tasty

I've got some tiny purple pompoms which I liked initially, something different, but now I've gone off them, a bit stunted looking and scrunched up

We won't tell if it's marajuana BB

Have you prodded the leaves to see if there's any clue from smell?

Enlarged it doesn't look like a willowherb.

more like something out of a packet of salad leaves

I thought the pinks and whites were variations of vulgaris landgirl. What has been crossed to produce those?

Bob, I've grown caerulea from seed last year but I'm not sure if it's going to flower this year. I should have got them planted out last year and they got a bit restricted in the pots.

fidget, I've got a good spread of colour and shape now, I may look for a few more species though
