Newbie unsure what plant this is

Posted: 08/06/2014 at 19:11

That's the one my Dad has, and it's quite invasive, but beautiful.

Potato flowers

I have an allotment, but there's only two of us to feed, so even if it's only enough for some mash once or twice it's not really cost us anything. Plus I hear potatoes are good as a starter crop to break up ground that's not been used to grow on for quite a while. What will the supermarket potatoes do once planted in the ground?

Right, considering there was a load of nonsense in the middle of this, can I still sow my seed potatoes, and any forgotten potatoes that have been forgotten about in the cupboard, and what is likely to happen? If anything I'm more confused more now than I was before I looked at this thread!

They aren't yellow now, they sort of started off the yellow colour, then the pink and purple colour spread into the petals, like a bruise?

 I honestly thought they were dying, I mean look at the bottom! but they are so so pretty! It seems sweet pea buds sort of bleed the colour slowly into them before blooming. Forever learning!

Pallet strawberries!

Thank you FG, also curious as to how you contain the strawberries behind the pallet?

Did I grow chilli???

Posted: 08/06/2014 at 12:15

can chillies grow from seed unprotected in the garden? I've tried growing various from seed in the greenhouse with little results.

I wanted to say the first was a holly, but was maybe too obvious!

flowering plant ID, but no flowers, just a bulb!

Wow! I feel very lucky! I've researched into them quickly and I love the fact they are bee attractors as I feel very strongly about helping the bees as much as I can in a small suburban garden. Would they be suitable to plant into any type of soil as I feel they are wasted in small pots, as they are very tall.

As mine are already slowly but surely starting to flower, hopefully they'll attract some bees. I love the light colour of the petals and the blue whiskery stamens!
