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

Beeches Nursery at Ashdon.


I see nutcutlet got there before me.......


See original post

 I got there when the nursery wasn't much more than a table with some plants on it Ceres


A great place, I lived in the next village for a long time.


Rather a long trip now so don't get there often.

Plant identification please

I reckon that's Buglossoides purpurocaerulea.

the leaves at the front are heuchera.


That's a heuchera, the plants don't always read the book of rules

How to protect seeds sown now

Posted: 08/09/2016 at 10:02

You don't need to protect them from the winter. They're hardy plants.


I hope they're large pots,  Vipers Bugloss is very leafy at the base and tales up a lot of space.

Rockery position

There are plenty of rockery plants that grow in shady places. Many of the 'alpines' sold in GCs are not alpine plants, they're just small plants.

sick tree

whatever the cause, it's never going to turn into a well-shaped tree now. The brown bits won't leaf up again. I wouldn't keep it.

Primula and aquilegia, outside somewhere cool. Not in the GH at all, they don't need covering. Honesty is best sown direct. If you haven't got enough to just sling around where you want them to flower I'll add some to your collection. They don't respond well to pricking out etc. Best to start where they're going to flower.


At this time of year I sow everything in pots of gritty compost, sling some more grit on top and leave them outside in a shady place. I bring a lot of them into the cold GH about midwinter when the GH won't get hot at all. Probably more for my benefit that the seeds'
