Seed and plant swap 2015

Posted: 22/08/2015 at 12:28

Hi Lyn

Mine, not sure what they all are but one is 'Spark's Variety' are late. barely in bud. I usually end up collecting seed well into the damp of autumn. I like the late ones but, being so dry here, they don't always look their best and I'd like to get some of the earlier ones going.

They'll do nicely with annual grasses but not so well in established grassland

You could scrape some patches in the grass, sow, and see what happens. Might be good

Hi DD The first thing is to decide what sort of meadow you want. The poppy/cornflower/bright colour mixes are not those that grow in a grass meadow. They need cultivated soil, they naturally grew in fields with crops before herbicides were invented.

Could you do another pic of the leaves please. Looking at the general appearance, the underside of the leaves and the trunk I think you might have a willow of some sort.

Has it ever produced flowers/catkins or fruits/ seeds?

Cut back like that it may not have done.

Does anyone know what these are?
