    Can't swear to it but they look like Mesembryanthemum leaves - Livingstone Daisies.

    Mesembryanthemum criniflorum.  as ladybird say. Livingstone daisies. Annuals that like a sunny spot as the flowers only open in sunshine. They like free draining soil.

  • Wow thanks guys, I actually thought the below on the left were the Mesembryanthemum so any idea about these?

    Or the 1 on the right  image  but I believe that came out of a red mix which have all been nice suprises so far (but must say, mostly pink rather than red flowers)


    And I'll definately bear labels in mind as I'm re-potting next year lol!

    Please also let me know if you know any of the above but especially the top left, fluffy little deep red flowers, very nice image

    Or front right with the 4 tall things growing?

    (4 tall things - such a novice haha)

    Thanks again !

  • Both cosmos but differnt types B3?

    I don't recall planting.. sure I've had tons of dud seeds this year, half the types I planted I can't seem to find image

    I see a nice plantain on the right, broad leaves, probably the one you refer to. A weed

    I'm a bit suspicious of the grassy looking one, middle left, as well

    In the sticks near Peterborough

    I think I can see sweet peas in the pink and purple pots behind the plantain and the brown pot to the left of them might be a viola.

    I can't see the fluffy red flowers on the top left plant char. Is it an old photo? The sweet peas look like young plants, mine are coming to the end of their growing season.

  • Ahhh ok, is the viola a pansy kitty2? I 100% planted lots of these but only have the 1 plant image

    I'm also very suspicious of the grass, nut ..these were seeds ordered off Ebay, that got shipped from China But the 2 infront of the 'grass' are apparently Bonsia tree (which is likely to be a fail 1st time round but the experiments create experience so image) and strawberry plant if these look familiar or correct?

    A couple I've had ID's for have been weeds Where do these plants magically appear from !?! hahaa
