Fruit, Berry, poisonus or edible

They're not poisonous but are said not to be worth eating. I've never tried so can't confirm

Fox gloves

What are your foxgloves Thomas? Did they flower this year?

Ordinary foxgloves are more or less biennial, they flower once and then they seed and die. A few linger on for another year in a half hearted way

They are hardy.

I saw a nice combination of winter jasmine and red berried cotoneaster yesterday. The berries will be gone soon but the jasmine will continue

Pulmonaria obscura seeds

Is this a very early flowerer. P. rubra often has one or new on New Year's Day if the weather has been mild like this year.

I shall have to get some longifolia though

I wasn't paying attention. My eschscholzias (I looked up how to spell that) would be useless for selling.

Yes, but they LOOK like grasses.  I still plant them for their "grasslike" form.  As I do for carex, Phormium, liriope.    But I agree we have all digressed from the original question


Don't we always digress Verdun

Hi Ryan

I like escholzias, but maybe I can't spell it. I like some of the more subtle colours as well as the bright orange, but not as a mix.

I can't think of any that I don't like but I don't grow many
