Physalis franchetti (Chinese Lantern)

They are hardy and invasive if happy. They creep along by root extension.

Lovely seed pods, little to offer otherwise. I love them.

Seen here trying to overcome a sedum


 

Amazing Encounter

I've still never seen a live badger. Dead ones too often. There are badgers very close to my garden, measurable in yards not miles. I'm sure they must come into my garden, my over the road neighbour has seen them in his garden.

Marygold, with most perennials you have to wait til the second year, a few flower in the first from an early sowing.

Don't cover the seed, light aids germination. Fresh is always best but I don't think these need a chill to germinate

Can anyone ID these plants?

I think the tall one to the right of the rose is a buddleia

Secret tricks of germination

Research where the plant comes from, what the climate is like, when it drops its seed. Follow what happens naturally

Found a stray frog

A bucket doesn't sound a good place for a frog, it needs to be able to get out of the water and to find things to eat. The lost one may have been looking for a pond that doesn't exist any more.

Dense plant foliage 100% better than bucket.

https://mail.google.com/mail/?ui=2&ik=723626a5b4&view=lg&msg=153614d17bbe801e

A weekly email you can sign up to. People respond to that and I don't think they realise they appear on the forum.
