What are your favourite self-seeding annuals?

Calendula and Chrysanthemum segetum are lovely.

Sadly only the one.

The bell used to be rung when there was an air raid over Sheffield, to warn the locals as sometimes they would try to blow up the railway tunnel which runs near the house.

Unless you have a duck house you are not posh. [ I don't ], but I do have a bell tower.

Maybe the service would be better if we nationalised it ! [ throwaway comment, not looking for an argument ]

Plant id please

Funny, I was thinking Verbena hastate, so we may be on the right track.

Hastata not hastate

Hi all.

Very wet all day, but really warm.

Spent day in greenhouse potting on, pricking out and sowing, whilst listening to some tunes.

Got a bit carried away at times, whilst doing air guitar solos, but I think all plants survived.

It is a Euphorbia, but I am not sure which species

Confused about Zinnia varieties- are Elagans the same thing as Lilliputs?

Posted: 16/05/2017 at 12:05

It is Zinnia elegans, the Lilliput just refers to the cultivar.

Hi all.

Been raining for 24 hours now, I should be more careful what I wish for.

Lots to do in the greenhouse, so that should keep me out of trouble.

Good luck today Clari.

Hope the ear is better Dove.

Cooked Salsify for the first time last night and have to say it was rather nasty, anyone know a way to make it tasty?
