 fidget,

I did wonder about x burkwoodii aym but there are so many out there and I don't know the diffeences. It's not likely to be anything unusual though, given its origins

This is today's pic fidget, it's out. It's had a few flowers since NYD, it was on the flower count

This viburnum has never had a name, bought cheap, lost label, years ago. Out now, fantastic scent, semi evergreen but the leaves turn red in autumn


 


 

 

and this one which I think is a petasites or near relation. Very white in flower to start with, then goes pinkish, about 2 foot tall. Invasive in a friend's garden where it came from but diminishing in mine, probably too dry in summer.

I forgot Crocus speciosus, there's one called 'Conqueror' which still turns up every year in my garden but hasn't spread like Colchicum autumnale

Nerine bowdenii is pink (if it's not white)

Colchicums as well

don't bother with Crocus sativus, it rarely plays the game

Help identifying plant or weed.

I have heard 

Allium ursinum

Allium triquetum 

Alliaria petiolata

all referred to as wild garlic.

This is why I use the above names. I like to know which plant I'm discussing.

re weeds. I'd rather have  Alliaria petiolata than  Lysimachia ciliata

 

 

Alyssum Saxatile Compactum

Too much heat and enclosure I'd say. Bob may be right about autumn sowing, I haven't grown this one, but fresh is the best way to sow any seed and they'll be fresher in autumn. Sooner if you can get hold of them, they'll be plants by winter, plant out in spring.
