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

Posted: 08/06/2014 at 12:01

well there you go, that's definitely it, but where the hell has it come from? I've two very well formed healthy plants, and they're very pretty and I don't want to get rid of them, are they worth keeping, and trying to keep the seeds for the wildflower garden I want to put in my allotment next year? Could it possibly have come from a bird? I've grown absolutely no wildflowers this year.

My wee garden!

I think I'm late to this, but can I ask what you did with the pallet? It looks fab, and looks like something I could maybe utilise in my allotment!

just popped up to the allotment to get some weedkiller, which I'm loathed to use, but it's a necessary evil. It's so busy, lots of people everywhere. It's probably bad of me to say, but I much prefer it when it's just me and the OH to just get stuck in and not worry about pleasantries... especially when all you hear is 'haven't you got your work cut out?!' thanks for the words of encouragement folks!

I have a naughty cat who keeps munching on my chilli plant's leaves, just as it was starting to thrive, she loves them, the odd thing! Weeds have also taken over my flower beds, and I appear to have had two plants die that I popped in there a couple of weeks ago. I'm going to pull them up and pop them in some pots, rather sad though, but predictably, as ever, I've forgotten what they're called. Two were from a market, and didn't come with labels, but I know I've kept the other somewhere!


Anyway, that's been my week so far. Hope you're all well

 So I've finally got a flower, and verbena seems to fit in looks to the flower, I just don't know where it's come from because we certainly didn't grow any!

Yet another ID required please?!

How do you retain so many names Nut? I struggle to remember what my cats are called, let alone 1000001 plant names!

Is it just me?

my mum's phobia is people holding the wooden sticks from ice cream with their teeth.

Yet another ID required please?!

Rose Cutting Successful - now what??

I'm too new to offer advice, but I'm subscribing to this as I intend to take cuttings this winter too. I'm so impressed at your growth!

I do know there's a new thread to ask all your rose related questions to.

Happy gardening

Sainsbury's is closest to us, and it's near Homebase where we like to see if there's any plants to 'rescue'

We can't touch the woodchip - we rent. Nasty vile stuff. Apologies if anyone has it and likes it! Just it's not for me at all!

Fuchsia joy!
