a mallow of some sort. Too close in the see the leaves so can't be more precise

Confused by 'biennial'

The sometimes flower another year but rarely as good, I sometimes leave them, only for them to die before flowering time

Salix

Posted: 03/08/2016 at 13:50

which salix is it?


as well as the white marks that Hazel mentions, some areas of the trunk look very dark. Is this wet or a light effect or are they a different colour?


That doesn't look good, trees drop leaves in times of stress but clinging onto the dead ones isn't a good sign. Have you had drought? It's been very wet here up to the last month and nothing that's been in place for 12 years is suffering from drought.

Is this a Foxglove

Posted: 03/08/2016 at 12:58

it is a foxglove, more likely a cultivar of Digitalis purpurea than a hybrid. These are more or less biennial, ie they die after flowering, but sometimes make a poor effort at flowering in the next year. Let it seed for future plants

Gazania seed

I don't think gazanias are hardy so best left til spring for sowing. Is the seed completely ripe and dry? if so store it in an envelope or something made of paper, not plastic. cool and dry, should be fine.
