shrub/tree ID please!

I'm pretty sure it's a willow sapling. The bark, the leaf shape and that hint of orange in the leaves is all willow

digitalis from seed

Posted: 09/06/2016 at 14:20

Digitalis need light, don't cover them. I've germinated them from spring and autumn sowings, no heat.


Your post reminds me that however many I may have germinated in the past, there are none to be seen in the garden now

easy and fast growing perennials from seed?

Posted: 09/06/2016 at 14:13

A lot of perennials will flower late in the first season if you sow them early but they won't now. It's a good time to sow perennials though. They'll flower next year. I used Chiltern Seeds to build up my collection, they list the quick flowering ones

Then, for later on, they have some much more interesting  seeds

Any help with ID of this please?

I'm sorry but nothing will regrow, they don't have resting buds waiting to take over from dead bit like a lot of deciduous trees. What's brown now will stay brown.
