Seed and plant swap 2015

Posted: 15/08/2015 at 19:34

Charlie, I've grown various dicentra from seed but never tried D. spectablis. I've always cold germinated the ones I have done, sow when ripe, leave outside over winter.

I should have what was formerly called Dicentra macrocapnos seeds later (subject to setting seed, one plant has collapsed)  I'll post them on here if they come to fruition

Anyone ID this plant please?

Saponaria officinalis

Opinion will be divided re weed status

Any idea's as to what this is?

I have;

Dianthus, probably carthusianum

Geranium pratense, in standard bluish, pink and a dark leafed one, probably a descendent of one of the Reiter strain. (separately)

Eyngium, probably bourgatii

Lathyrus aureus

Myrrhis odorata (sweet cicely)

Polemonium brandegeei, yellow and more tolerant of dry soil than the blues

Antirrhinum, pinkish and yellows, look like a cross between a pink large flowered one and a little yellow species I have since lost.

Aquilegia, yellow/orange

Geranium nodosum

Silene vulgaris (bladder campion)

Actaea rubra, this isn't dry enough to post yet but won't be long. I didn't tell OH the nature of what I was cleaning up in the kitchen sink but I haven't killed us yet.

Lyn, Jo and Fishy, yours are already packed.


If anyone has any I would like Rehmannia elata, which someone has, we ID'd it a while back


Plant ID help please.

Is this a mole tunnel?

Yes, I don't think anything else would produce that
