Hi, Could anybody please tell me what these plants are.
The next two are euphorbias but could somebody tell me which ones they are.
Thank you for any help.
Don't know which euphorbias you've got - someone else will probably know.
I'll do the easy one - the lovely lilac flower is purple Honesty Lunaria annua - the one that has the lovely circular transparent seedheads in the autumn
Thank you Dove, I grew some seeds last year, but never got round to putting them in the garden, so they are still in my cold greenhouse.
Do they come back every year ? , Do you think it is worth me harding them off to put in the garden.
I had a very bad year last with getting things done in the garden, I'm behind on getting seeds done this year aswell, always having to run around for everyone else.
Thank for your help Dove.
No. 3 is E. chariacas Black Pearl. not sure about 2.
Honesty is biennial, you need to let it seed in the garden for best effect, don't sow in trays. Plant out the ones from the GH after a bit of hardening off and they may flower this year.
Thank you punkdoc, I will get that one written down.
Thank you nut, Never had this plant before to hoping I will be able to collect some seeds aswell.
Collect some if you like, but let it seed itself and leave it to grow where it germinates. I find it doesn't do so well sown in trays, pricked out, potted on etc. It can be done but the plants are lesser specimens
Ok nut, I will let it seed itself, I didn't pinch these ones out should I do that when these ones self seed.
Yes, Honesty is much happier if you just throw some seeds in a corner of the garden and leave them to it
Thanks Dove, I don't usually put seeds straight in the ground because the neighbours cats are always trying dig up any spare patch in the ground, I will put somethink over the seeds to stop the cats from dig them over.
