Can anyone help identify this "berry" tree?

Posted: 06/08/2016 at 17:18

you describe them as berries, this suggests something small. How big are they?

Are these aquilegia seedlings?

Posted: 06/08/2016 at 17:16

definitely last year's seeds, this year's have barely been shed. 

Fuchsia not producing any berries?

the berries ripen to blue/black but they don't start like that.


I don't know if all the hybrid fuchsias produce seed but I don't think you'd need 2 different sorts

Illumination pink, yes, I've seen that in GCs this year. Not a stylish plant, just in your face pink

ID please

Phlomis russelliana, with one little second flowering to prove what it is. I cropped out the brambles



ID please

i don't think I've ever cultivated anything properly


but the 2 ladybird mentions struggle here until they die. I think monarda needs more moisture in the soil.


If I look in my database of plants/seeds grown there's a lot that have dropped out of sight.

Was that one of the variegated ones, 'Flamingo' or something? Lack of water and hot sun is the usual summer problem for those. 

Will this plant reflower ?

I don't know,  agree with Verdun, not veronicastrum. A pic that shows the shape of the flowers could help. What colour were they?


But whatever it is I think it's too late for a second flowering now.

You're mixing with the wrong sort of people B3. It slips into conversation easily here. 


OH manages to slot in gibberellins occasionally, that's one of his favourites
