Ive just bought 15 just for postage and put in  tubs as my soil in the borders is so hard

 Hi Joyce, one place I know that sells liquid seaweed is Wilkinsons, the budget home supplies chain. It's relatively expensive at about £4.00 a bottle but definitely worth using. They often have big reductions on this and other garden items in the autumn and it keeps very well.

Hi, you need to post your question as a new thread otherwise no one is going to see it. This thread is from 2013!

A long shot, could be a possibility it's a type of Erigeron or Gerbera.

 I think gerbera might be right. Hopefully someone will know for sure.

Hi, I've been helping a neighbour with her garden and she's bought another plant without a label.

As you can see it's just about to fully flower and I thought it might be a gazania but the foliage doesn't fit.

Could someone please let me know what it is.

Many thanks everyone. I knew it was familiar but just couldn't remember and I'm pretty sure it will be morning glory. It's one of the stock items in packets of annuals and I've had many in the garden in the past.

I sowed some seeds from a packet of summer annuals a little while ago. This is one of the seedlings that has emerged. It looks very familiar but I've no idea what it is.

Anyone recognise it?

ID for large, bushy mallow

Posted: 09/07/2017 at 10:28

Many thanks for the comments. I was unsure because of the size of the flowers and the fact that it is so bushy and tall. It has a very wide girth. I have other M. sylvestris in the garden and they are very upright and quite compact, with much larger flowers even though they are still quite small.

The flowers on the plant in question are tiny compared to the other Malvas and Lavateras that I have or have had in the garden. The largest are only 3.5cm in diameter.

But as you say Nut, it is a fine specimen.
