Anemone nemorosa (wood anemone)

Where are you getting your daffs and bluebells from Snoodle. I want some more bulbs. I'd like something scented for early flowering in the cold GH.

Maybe I'll start a thread for suggestions

The hogweed is easy to get rid of in cultivated soil but a right b....... in the meadow where it was running riot when we got here

Hi Salino

At that stage of growth and still upright, the umbellifer is likely to be hogweed, Heracleum sphondylium. the yellow one is a lysimachia, yellow loosestrife

A lovely plant, I wouldn't be without it

Not what it looks like

It's a phytolacca, maybe not americana, hard to tell from the picture and I don't know the other species well enough. There are 2 distinct plants around that come labelled P.a. The differences are in the leaves, one has pale, almost white, veining.

Many thanks for reviving this thread Caroline. I've been searching for it everywhere. I saved the instructions to a file but the computer died

This is perennial but tender. If you can protect it from cold it will survive

I'd forgotten the need for fresh seed there Berghill, I sow everything fresh so it just happens.

For the trickier ones I often buy a plant and seed on from there. You can buy Anemone nemorosa in spring from places like Potterton's Nursery Snoodle.

You can sow them now and leave them outside or sow them in late winter rosemummy. They're very easy and flower very quickly. Half my last lot flowered in the first year from seed.

The most prolific germination of rose seeds I've had was after making rosehip wine. Boiling water poured on the hips, soaked for about a week and then tipped on the garden. Next spring, a mini forest of rose seedlings
