The lack of winter was a bit of a setback to germination, I put all mine that had been waiting for winter into the fridge in the shed for about 6 weeks.
One of the paeonies germinated in the fridge and Aquileguia skinneri germinated yesterday after about a fortnight out of the fridge. There are several that haven't moved
I stand them outside for the entire winter cotty
You could start here
I doubt if you'll get them IDd at a GC unless yours is quite exceptional but Wo is right about selling you something to cure it
Where are you Lindsay and is the plant outside
The where it was and the stage of growth told me it wasn't a gerbera but there's no way you could know all that Matt.
I don't grow gerbera either, that's a bit of a clue, available only to me
I'll bump you up Mandy but I haven't a clue
It still looks OK it the photo Matt. They are very fragile though tough as old boots in hardiness. I removed the supporting weeds from one today and fear collapse at the first gust
I'll take another pic tomorrow but what it looks like now is Mandragora officinalis, mandrake. If it is that's surprising, it's a long way and across a pond to a mandrake. Also the mandrake has only fruited once in all the years It's been here and that was 8 or 9 years ago
A walled garden, that would be great. Totally out of place here, but would love one.
