    Yep Oxalis,should have pretty pink flowers image

  • Thanks, I'm going to let it really really grow before taking it out of the cold frame

    Thanks again guys
  • is a hardy perennial so shouldn't need too much TLC.............mine are showing through now ...........lovely red flowers.

    If you like it, it is easy to divide as it produces little "bulbs" which can be potted on separately .........altogether a nice little plantimage

    ..but if you let oxalis get out of hand you'll never get rid of it!  Those bulbils get everywhere!   Or maybe the cultivated ones are less invasive?

    I'd be surprised if that one got out of hand.

  • so this will  live for two years straight through without dying back??


    I'm new to growing really as this is my first season with my cold frame and I'm very happy with the (little) results image

    It should live for years Daniel but it will die back in winter

  • ok thanks

    another question, i have a hosta growing right next to it (you can just about see it on the photo) will that die back and will they be ok so close to each other??
