the first is an echium, without seeing the whole plant I couldn't say which but probably Echium vulgare. The second is too small and blurred for me to see

fox gloves/salvias

Posted: 13/10/2016 at 14:17

People have posted here that foxglove die back for winter, mine don't. I wouldn't expect a native plant to be frost sensitive. Even if you cut the foliage back it will regrow and cover the place where the anemones are. They aren't a good combination. Large strong bulbs like narcissi will push their way through. Little things won't.


What sort of salvias? Shrubby or herbaceous perennials?

no idea at all pbff, I only grow hardy plants. I should think they'd need some heat

Coldframes in winter

I never close anything, frame or cold GH but I do have the lid over the plants to stop them getting too wet.

Add lots of organic stuff, muck, compost. and choose plants that will thrive in heavy clay, however much you improve it clay is what you have. Acers might be best left until the soil has been improved. Roses probably don't mind

Propagating Syringa vulgaris from seed

I occasionally get self seeded ones in the garden. I wouldn't mess about with soaking and artificial stratification. I'd sow it now in gritty compost and leave it outside, it should germinate in spring.


What you get will not be predictable. They're grown from cuttings/graftings/layerings because that way you get a plant the same as the parent
