Flax. Linum secies.

What is it, how do I get rid of it - black pods on lawn

Have you got any photos of the leaves?

What colour were the flowers?

Where can I buy Erysimum 'Bowles's Mauve' wallflower seeds?

Posted: 22/07/2017 at 15:35

yes, could be great, just not Bowles' Mauve. Won't do for those that want a patch of all the same plant.

Portugese Laurel

Posted: 22/07/2017 at 15:31

mine get nothing except rain when it rains. Very alkaline soil. The Portugal laurel is much better than Prunus laurocerasus in this respect

If you don't cut off the dead top you risk it rotting and the rot spreading to the rest of the plant and preventing the new growth filling in the gap.

Plant ID, please

Where can I buy Erysimum 'Bowles's Mauve' wallflower seeds?

Plant World seeds say they've developed a strain that does produce seed. But is it really Bowles' Mauve if BM is sterile?

they aren't saying that you will get Bowles' Mauve from them.

Planting lysmchia Seeds

I'm sure the timing isn't that precise. I'm sowing perennials now as seed ripens. Perennials take longer than annuals to get going (mostly) so I always start them in pots and grow them on a bit before planting out. In my garden they could easily be overcome by weeds or dislodged with the weeds.
