A plant called Happy Philip

Posted: 04/10/2017 at 18:41

if you can't find it with a Google search for Osteospermum 'Happy Philip', it's probably the wrong name.

I think google would have brought it up with your small spelling error of osteospermum

Weed is taking over my garden, need ID!

hat looks a bit to prickly for Pilosella.. More like Bristly Oxtongue, Helminthotheca echioides

Could Someone ID this please ?

It's a houseplant I've seen about. (I don't do houseplants). Definitely not Arum italicum

Help! Astrantia by seed

Posted: 02/10/2017 at 22:24

I set astrantia in autumn, outside. I generally bring the overwintering seed pots into the cold GH around February. this might be more for my benefit than theirs. I also bring things in when they germinate, no heat, just shelter from the worst of the wet and pecking birds.

verbena about February in the cold GH

I use gritty compost and some more grit on top of the seeds, it stops them getting washed out or growing mould/algae/other undesirables

Japanese Knotweed?

no, that's not a shrub, it dies back every year.

I don't recognise your shrub from that photo, it's had a haircut which masks the natural appearance.
