No Dave, sorry. No conifer recovers from that

Hot thread

Could we have a hot thread if enough of us discussed the next ice age?

Weeds, weeds, everywhere !

Given the general weedy state that geum might be Geum urbanum, wood avens, which is a weed.

The pink one is a persicaria, knotweed. Flowering now it's probably the annual weedy one.

That could be an evening primrose with the stinging nettles at the top. Biennial, will flower next year, but it's very much in shadow so I'm not sure.

The tall one that's gone to seed, that's not a sow thistle, the leaves are wrong. Have you any idea what colour it was when it flowered and do the leaves smell at all?. I'd hold on that, till someone gives a positive ID

It would be good to see you at West Acre Snoodle.

I can't do BC anyway


Back for some more small flower ID's, please.

Larkspur is a delphinium (or was before it was reclassified)

I think that's larkspur

I think the second might be the one that has darkish pink flowers, rather a pungent smell and has running white roots. Can't bring any of it's names to mind though

Hi Tracy, all the ones I've tried have been very easy. Sow now, leave somewhere out of the sun. They'll either germinate very quickly or in spring. No heat required.

I generally bring all my set seeds into the cold GH in January but that's more for my convenience than theirs.

I was disappointed Verdun. I had great hopes for griffithii.

I may have another try and keep it in a pot so I can protect it in the winter.

Is this Japanese Knotweed? - please help

There's a mixture of things in the top pic, something with  a couple of red berries and some purplish flowers, they won't belong to the same plant. Nothing remotely like JKW.
