Climbing Fuchsia 'Lady Boothby'

Posted: 23/03/2016 at 14:02

Fuchsia can get long and lanky but they have no equipment to climb anything, no twining or tendrils or thorns to hang on by

So technically they're not climbing, without help they're probably ground cover

Are these weeds?

I think the 3rd is a willowherb but not rosebay. 

Forsythia giraldiana

Not so many people have F. giraldiana though. Forsythia x intermedia (and its long string of cultivars) is much more common. 

Most people (including me ) haven't a clue which one they've got.

I don't find them happy to be sown in trays and pricked/planted out Watery. They're happier to grow where they grow. 

But it's interesting how difficult it can be to establish some very easy plants. There are many I've failed with that I'm told are easy

Don't forget to let them seed, they're biennials and will die after flowering. You'll have lots more in the future

Yes they are (were) mine GD
