Pale yellow or lemon plants

Posted: 14/05/2014 at 09:18

Lemon balm? I have a yellow leaved variety in the garden which looks lovely. The flowers are quite small though and white.

imposters?

They could be! Especially if the previous owner dug them up and left a small piece behind. With such a mild winter, it looks like it has survived and grown on.

They look a bit like the young plants of rosebay willow herb. Some consider it a weed!

I am quite jealous of his success! So far about 20 have grown into small plants. I suspect they are headed for the cool bed behind the garage!

My brother has germinated some meconopsis seeds and they now need to go in bigger pots. Can he use soil from the garden, which is acidic, or must they be grown in ericaceous compost?

Can they be put outside now, especially as the weather is warming up and they need cooler conditions.   I do hope someone can advise!

Too early for bedding plants yet?

Recycled water and tea is just as good...especially for the compost heap!

Some of these responses are a real giggle! It never occurred to me that people could bo sooo disgusting! I would love a rabbit fence but the cost is prohibitive - our field border alone is about 150 yards long and then there is the back and other sides. Recycled beer seems to work this week, but probably not for long. Thank you all so much for cheering me up
