I thought that too Ladybird, but I am not sure the leaves are right.

Any one know what these two beautiful plants are please.

Be careful, because Magnolia are very shallow rooted and you can easily damage the roots whilst under planting.

They need lots of sun, moisture and food [ a bit like me  ]

Some questions about wallflowers

IMO / experience.

Seeds will not come true, but may well be viable. [ once they are ripe. They need to be left attached to plant, to achieve this ]

Cuttings will work.

Cutting them back, as long as plant has plenty of leaves, may work, but they will tend to flower earlier and not give a long Spring display.

Maybe it is a way that will be used in the future to check that people who use i-player etc., have a TV licence.

If they are hardy perennials, they can go in pots outside, somewhere sheltered.

Keep potting them on, until they are sizeable plants and the plant out.

They do not need to be molycoddled.
