We have a few of these in our garden, this one has grown in front of our ivy fence. I assume they are wild plants but I really like them and love the colour of the flowers. Does anyone know what it is please?
Looks like honesty Poppy lady
Thank you. Never heard of it so will have to look in my wildflower book
Honesty is a garden plant that often seeds itself into the wild - you'll probably recognise it's seed cases http://www.telegraph.co.uk/gardening/howtogrow/3308038/How-to-grow-Honesty.html
there are white and variegated versions.
So if I collect these seeds will they grow if I plant them in a different place?
Yes! Can seed around.
Lunaria annua... common name Honesty. See..
Shouldn't bother collecting them Poppy, just let them seed themselves around.
OK will do
