Geum Lady Stratheden

Posted: 03/07/2015 at 22:27

Lady Stratheden is a cultivar derived from a wild geum. The wild one probably looked more like your yellow one. I wouldn't let the yellow bit seed or it will come even more like the wild one and be called a weed.

Have you checked it's all on one plant?, not two roots in there?

Is this wild garlic???/

There are the perennial ones called oriental poppies, you can cut those back, leaves as well and more leaves will grow.

and the opium poppies, the annuals with light green leaves

and the ones that are deived from field poppies in varoious colours, also annual.

the last two can be left to seed or pulled up

what next

What sort of poppies are they?

stratification

If you research where each plant comes from you will get some clues. No tender plant from a hot country will need cold stratification for its seeds. It's about replicating what happens naturally.

Is this a weed or wild flower

Prunella vulgaris, self-heal, I think though it looks very blue rather than purple

I believe you Fiona, they're everywhere. I don't take much notice of them unless they get very extreme. They are part of nature and I like a natural garden, the birds pick them off for me and if it gets really unsightly I brush off or cut off
