Taken over by aliens describes that situation very well Ceres.


 

Fuschia "cherry" thingies

seeds yes, you can leave or cut off. I expect most serious fuchsia growers cut them off .

Gunnera Manicata

I can't see either of those plants taking over the world. If they were going to do that they would have done it by now. Pampas grass especially was everywhere years ago  but fortunately much less now. 


If invasive plants are banned, (EU or otherwise), does it affect anything other than imports?


It seems pointless when the plants are here.

good idea harmony. If I remember I'll do that to mine next year

Don't let them seed and they can't go anywhere.


I live on the dry side of the country but I've seen obviously self seeded gunnera growing along the side of a lane in Norfolk

Cyclamen

On looking at the photo I'm not sure that's hederifolium. 


Did it have leaves in July?


Just picked up your last post, purpurescens, yes, I'd forgotten that one. I don't think that has a dormant period, or not much of one

Cyclamen

C. hederifloium are sometimes called autumn cyclamen but mine are always flowering by July, and mostly continue right through til late November. Flowers before foliage as Fairy says. I haven't got much foliage yet. Hederifolium means like ivy, that's what the leaves look like, (some more than others)


C. coum has flowers and leaves at the same time, a much rounder leaf, flowers around the new year or later depending on weather.


There are lots more species but those are the two most common hardy ones.

too hot?

It would seem that Honesty is likely to be overrunning my garden next year - I have the purple flowered seeds - do either of you have the white flower 


Pretty sure I have GD. Well, I know I have, but didn't mark any up so only think I have collected seeds from a variegated white one. The seedlings are variegated at the first or second true leaves so can be discarded if I got it wrong. I hope I got it right or my colour scheme will go to pot. 


Who am I trying to kid that I have a colour scheme
