Is this St Johns Wort?

I'd agree with that. There's nothing measurable there, you get what you get

I tell myself that every year pd. Then the lists arrive, people offer stuff on the seed swap, I save my own seed and I'm off again

I was determined to cut down. My former nursery patch, 24 x 6 ft of gravel on a membrane, has been planted up with this and that as a gravel garden. Now OH is saying 'I told you so'.

I've already sown the first seeds, I've got loads to sow, I've just had a belated germination from Lathyrus rotundifolius, there are dozens of Roscoea (thank you fidget) and arisaemas.

I think It's a terminal condition

St johns wort is a name applied to all hypericums now. It used to be more specific in previous times.

The one used medicinally is Hypericum perforatum, Perforate St John's Wort a probably native perennial plant

Regular dead-heading might prolong the flowering. Or cut right back when the first flush is over and you might get a later show

Well I'm not sure here Jedward.

Are there any other opinions?

I can't see that as a flowering cherry Logan

I've never been tempted by a plug plant.

It's the seed lists that get me every time

Hi Lyn

Mine, not sure what they all are but one is 'Spark's Variety' are late. barely in bud. I usually end up collecting seed well into the damp of autumn. I like the late ones but, being so dry here, they don't always look their best and I'd like to get some of the earlier ones going.
