Strange bitter white root

Have you still got it Blueboots? A photo might help.

If bryony you won't find the foliage now.

Richard H is right, things are not always as they should be (and not just clematis).

one problem is seed raised plants. A named cultivar eg 'Apple Blossom' can only be produced by cuttings/layering etc. 

A seed raised plant is not 'Apple Blossom' but may be sold as such. 

Some seed lists contain a lot of seeds from cultivars. The unsuspecting gardener is deceived

Tulip trouble

Tulips in the garden don't need watering at this time of year

Anyone done any gardening today?

Posted: 27/03/2015 at 18:36

I planted  stuff today. Some Verbascum lychnitis,  Anthyllis vulneraria, Delphinium staphisagria, Lychnis coronaria, hollyhocks. 

Dug up an Astrantia 'Hadspen Blood', it had been there so long I needed heavy duty tools to split it. So took it down to small rooted bits and potted it to grow on.

Admired latest germinations, Actaea alba, fidgetbone's paeony.

They do look like stunted versions of large ones rather than small varieties don't they.

Maybe the flowers will be bigger as the plant matures.

Sea Holly

Hi Annabel

Don't worry about where you post, it all ends up on the same page

Is this the native sea holly? 

I don't think any of them like sticky clay and being wet all winter.

Watching seedlings grow

I agree Gemma. It's a much repeated fiction that wild flowers 'need' poor soil.

Maybe it relates to growing plants in grass where the grass gets too exuberant in good soil and swamps the other plants.

and I was disappointed to find none of the wild flower mixes at the local GC were native mixes

I should think they will Lucid. Over-enthusiasm is more likely to be a problem, depending on which one you've got
