I think it's some sort of geranium

Posted: 15/10/2016 at 21:55

It's a bit woody, has bright pink flowers. I wasn't expecting it to be hardy but it's been here for years and I've forgotten the name



It's only had 2 flowers this year  but the leaves are nice.


With luck I'll recognise the name if someone suggests it

I swing between loving the colours and threatening them with the big shredder.

How about a photo. Tomatoes often turn up uninvited


Tasmanian plants less often

Grass Seed Hasn't Germinated

interesting, we've been sowing bits and pieces to reshape areas of grass, very quick germination so far. I don't expect this lot to be so quick.

I sowed some yesterday.


It's tough stuff. It all comes to a stop when the temperature gets too low but starts again when it warms up.


A couple of years ago I sowed some in November, snow covered it after germination and it carried on after the snow melted

Yes, seed won't germinate dry. First stage of germination is taking in water

Should  be posted to a fungi ID site if there are serious concerns.

plant identity

I think the second may be one of the cultivars of Echium vulgare that's grown as an annual, Blue Bedder is one of them.


No doubt in my mind re the first, the native species Echium vulgare, Viper's Bugloss.
