verbena bonariensis seeds

They should flower this year but not until later. Very often mine succumb to the under gardener's over enthusiastic weeding ... so they fail to survive! I re-sow every year and they always flower.

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!
