More weeds I think??

Posted: 07/11/2014 at 13:33

The top one looks like a rudbeckia, Goldsturm or similar.

I need to feel the 2nd one shape suggests oenothera or nicotiana

Do you grow Aconitum's?

too much of a credibility gap for me, unless the gardener had a specific sensitivity.

how to save elder and birds whilst getting rid of ivy

I dunno Welsh, we found one here that was 15 foot tall and at least as wide.  The base of the trunk was 2 foot in diameter.

Beyond the tools and ability of many gardeners.

Plants for Winter interest

Sarcococca is an excellent shrub for shade and no trouble at all. Lovely scent and looks OK all year

The Lonicera is not a shapely shrub but again a lovely scent.  It might not like the dried out clay in summer and doesn't offer anything in that season

I don't grow skimmias, I have done but I don't like the way the leaves often look pale and sick. 

Do you know where your pets are tonight?

no pets now but we used to find loud music in the house drowned the fireworks enough to reduce the effect on the cats

There are some big ones (queens or potential queens?) about now. They like to hibernate in the cleaning rags in OH's workshop. He is not keen on this.

Propagation of Fatsia Japonica and Agapanthus

 Found it

not over-helpful. 

Light, Warm.

I assume that means it needs light to germinate, covering with vermiculite instead of compost or grit will sort that out. 

Windowsill job at this time of year.

If you've got plenty I'd do some now and keep some for spring. 

Propagation of Fatsia Japonica and Agapanthus

Fatsia japonica will grow from seed. I grew it many years ago. I'll see if I can find my records, they might be difficult to find.

They'll need to be really ripe and black. I used bought seed but own fresh seed is always best as long as it's ripe.
