Where can I buy Erysimum 'Bowles's Mauve' wallflower seeds?

yes, could be great, just not Bowles' Mauve. Won't do for those that want a patch of all the same plant.

Portugese Laurel

mine get nothing except rain when it rains. Very alkaline soil. The Portugal laurel is much better than Prunus laurocerasus in this respect

If you don't cut off the dead top you risk it rotting and the rot spreading to the rest of the plant and preventing the new growth filling in the gap.

Plant ID, please

Very different flowers, but white for both.

Plant World seeds say they've developed a strain that does produce seed. But is it really Bowles' Mauve if BM is sterile?

they aren't saying that you will get Bowles' Mauve from them.

I'm sure the timing isn't that precise. I'm sowing perennials now as seed ripens. Perennials take longer than annuals to get going (mostly) so I always start them in pots and grow them on a bit before planting out. In my garden they could easily be overcome by weeds or dislodged with the weeds.

I'll leave it to those who will scroll up and down trying to work out which number is which plant. I've gone cross-eyed already

Plant ID, please

Philadelphus another possibility

Long flowering geranium 30cm or less

if Buxton Blue was pink it would be called Buxton Pink,

Very few plants are really true blue, but Buxton Blue is on the blue side of mauve.

Can anyone identify this plant/weed?

I'd look at something like Vicia sepium, Bush Vetch. Pea family pretty blue flowers, clambers through shrubs.  Might be worth letting some grow to confirm. But not a hypericum or periwinkle for sure, the arrangement of the leaves in the stem is all wrong.
