Removing leaves from unknown bulbs

Posted: 25/07/2014 at 18:26

grow them hard, no food, that cuts down the leaf and you see the flowers. Otherwise they're foliage plants and things love to eat foliage plants.

You can get varieties that are bush rather than climbing then you don't get all that sprawling about.

They grow in the poorest patches of garden. 

What is this plant please

That's a godetia but might now be called clarkia. A good old annual, my mum used to grow those

That's the problem with planting now but if you have nice soil and don't let them dry out, they'll be fine.

like Outdoor girl, I wouldn't put them in my soil now

What is this leafy plant?

They're biennials. You sow them one year and they flower the next. Then they die so let them seed. The seed pods are decorative as well.

Enjoy them

The flowers will be next year. That looks like honesty to me too.. Come autumn and the rainy season I'd spread them out a bit

Hi Victoria, I'm not positive on the lysimachia but you're right to discount veronicastrum, that's very different, especially the leaves as you say

Poppy seeds

What sort of poppies are they? The annual ones shed their seed through the summer and germinate either soon after or in spring.  So now will be fine for them.

 

None of them need heat. Outside is best

Keep your eye on the plant and seed swap on the forum.

My garden was built for very little money and involved a lot of seeds. Including trees. Just needs more time than buying instant stuff but a lot  more satisfying because you did it.
