I agree with gardenmaiden on the middle on in 3, Centranthus ruber, valerian, bees like it.

I suppose it got a bit of water when other plants were watered in summer but I didn't give it any attention at all. Grit does hold the moisture in

Hi Hollie, in the third of my yesterday pics, there are grit covered pots. the paeony is in one of them. Sitting on slabs outside the GH for winter but on the shady side of the house through summer.

I think 20 is Juncus effusis, soft rush, a common weed of well -watered pots.

and 22 a campanula, is that the one you were thinking of Gm?

Watch them flowers, if the seed was very fresh they may germinate any day now.

No pic but I had an exciting germination today. A single paeony seed, given to me two and a half years ago, has germinated.

It's a white herbaceous one

Everything is so much quicker now. The early plant hunters probably took months to get home. Long enough to spot and eliminate problems.

Try not to take it personally aym. Idiotic decisions are made and we all know it. No individual, plant hunter or otherwise, has been accused of anything

too late to get eremurus flowers?

Posted: 02/04/2016 at 14:25

Eremurus are up in leaf, I saw some yesterday, about a foot tall. If you've got them, plant them, they won't improve with keeping. Plant and leave alone, they're not things to be lifted yearly or moved around.

My feeling is that with not much root and not planted yet you won't get flowers this year
