It's all so exciting. I love germinating seeds

I've got some yellow foxgloves pp, D, grandiflora they've been here a year or two and I can't remember who sent me them (as usual)


They seem perennial so far but I'll probably let them seed to be sure.


We probably are bonkers

they should look like the blue patch in the middle. also Birds Foot Trefoil and Bladder Campion that I think you sent me Fishy.



I have converted the former nursery in font of the GH to a place full of insect favourites

Can anybody give name to this plant please

Mine are flowering, probably being flattened by the wind and rain right now.

Were these from the seed swap Fishy? I have Campaula persicifolia which I obtained as harebells on the seed swap. Fidget sent me some real seed. I shall have plenty if you want some or bits of root

Help with identifying

4 and 5 I can see prickles. The way they're growing is bramble as well. Ground elder and Jap anemone are more inclined to come up in clumps and groups. The top one is Japanese Anemone though

I can see the prickles in one of the photos, the things in the lawn, brambles.

Mine flower when they feel like it but a second flush could be a bit late to produce hips (especially this year, summer will be over before it starts). I don't deadhead mine.

Low growing flowers for lawn alternative

I looked at the photos on your previous posting


http://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/wildlife-gardening/grass-free-lawn/800916.html


There are some lovely effects but they bring to mind the 'show' or makeover garden. Lovely now but what happens later?


What comes after is maintenance ie weeding. I don't think you're looking at a labour saving plan here.


My advise would be to try it. Nothing to lose, you'll see what works and what doesn't.


 


A few points. mat forming thyme lets the weeds through and goes brown if it's over-shadowed for long. Scarlet pimperenel has no mat forming ability, it's a plant of field edges and bare places, not part of a lawn effect. 


Good luck
