Evening all.

fidget, no my roscoea haven't germinated yet. I still have ungerminated pots of this and that waiting hopefully. No real winter and my artificial winter only succeeded with a paeony and Aquilegia skinneri. If yours have just germinated maybe there's still hope. They all got drowned again today. An inch of rain before breakfast and the measuring pot so full by the end of the morning the rain was splashing out of the top.

What was it we were promised? A long hot summer?

ID Please

tbf I thought the top ones were aconitums as well. I think I would be able to tell the difference in the flesh (or leaf) but not from the photo

Buddy, 2 days ago you were recommending Gallup. Is that not a trade name for glyphosate?

I agree with Verdun. I'm not much of a chemicals person but I think it's that or repeated digging. I don't think covering it will do it. 

Any ideas what this is before it flowers

If you rub the leaves you'll know. They all have a hint of garlic/onion about them

How easy are roses to grow from seeds and when is the best time to sow the seeds? Thanks.

Species roses are very easy from seed. I sowed Rosa rugosa in autumn and it produced a flower within a year.

Rosa moyesii and rubrifloia are easy as well but not so quick to flower.

Any of the hybrid roses you find making viable seeds will produce something but not as the parent, though could be close with the single flowered ones

Cultivars never seed true though some may look much the same, at least for the first few seedings.

Foxgloves species will seed true unless they're been crossed with something
