That's right, yes.
But you might get something nice. There was an Acer plantanoides cultivar in the garden when we arrived. Lovely for a couple of weeks with new growth and flowers but dull and dreary after that. Its babies are much more attractive all season
Nice work LH
They may be asters. They're not a weed I know. Though some of the asters are a bit weedy
Not completely different but October Glory is a cultivar of Acer rubrum and cultivars don't come true from seed, they're reproduced vegetatively, cuttings, graftings etc, a clone. Seedlings are likely to be be closer to the original species but you might get something you like even better
Where are you Yviestevie? Can you organise a trip? Just decide on place, date and time and see who says yes
It's a long way for me but I'm meeting up with artjak. It's not so far when there are 2 of you
Right, sow them, well drained compost, top with grit, shady place outside now. Outside or cold GH/coldframe for winter. No heat at any time, germinate in spring.
The babies may not be the same as the parents
I doubt if they're ripe yet. Are they brown and dry?
If they are, sow them fresh and leave them cold through the winter. I've always left tree seeds outside but some people use a cold frame so they don't get too wet.
Hi Topbird, we've previously swapped mobile numbers. It helps with meeting up.
I'll PM you with mine later on. I'd do it now but I'd have to get up and find the number
Hi Graham, I would describe the lychnis as a short-lived perennial. But the best flowers for me come from the younger plants that have self seeded.
The curry plants is a shrubby helichrysum which can be hard pruned in spring
probably a stitchwort or silene or something in that family.
