Weed/Plant ID please

it wasn't very nice addict. but no permanent damage. I still keep growing euphorbias

Dove I didn't know it could do more than irritate. Maybe you're allergic as well.

Cotoneaster causing concern!

yes,I've been attacked as well. E. myrsinites. Cut off some stems on a hot day, I wasn't aware of any sap but an hour or so later my face went numb/and tingly Guesed immediately what it was and showered my face. Muat have screwed my eyes up though, very sore and red on the eyelids for a day or 2 and all the skin peeled off.

Hi fb, glad they got there this time. I checked your address on the PM in case I'd got it wrong first time round. I hope to be your way soon, son visited here but only a few hours warning so  no time to organise anything. Complex lifestyle these young(ish) people have.

I think everyone has got what I sent now but if you haven't - shout. Except cotty and flowersforbees, you're still awaiting harvest

there's a lot of knowledge available on this site Helena, don't hesitate to ask. we don't all know everything.but we know a lot between us. Hardy shrubs and perennials from seed are a particular interest of mine. You won't find me answering questions on veg, or exotic or tender plants. or garden design. That's someone else's role

someone gave me some seed heads of a euphorbia and I put them in my shirt pocket. They were exploding all the way home. Odd sensation

Have a look on the germination page here.

Astrantia is a cold germinater, outside or cold greenhouse. No heat. They'll germinate in the spring. It's what happens naturally. don't do anything to them other than sow them and put some grit on top. Come feb or March you can bring them in for your benefit so you can see when they germinate. 

Done like that is pretty reliable

They're  wild somewhere in the world.

I remember those now from my childhood, thought it looked familiar

not a rhodo, you wouldn't get that to flower in a season. It will be an annual.

what sort of Viburnum?

all my trees and shrubs are germinated outside or in a cold GH through the winter. grit on top helps with moulds an algae
