ID please. I grabbed a seed head from the crematorium where Steve's ashes are scattered, and this plant is the result. I thought the seeds I had were Lavender, but my gardening friend says it's not lavender!

Looks more like a wild red Campion, which are lovely anyway. Try searching google for 'red campion seed heads' and see if they look like the ones you planted.

Many thanks Honey, I will.

Oh dear - not that I’m afraid. I’ll take another pic once it’s flowered.

Its very early in the year for campion to be flowering. It grows wild in profusion here and no sign of flowers yet. Did you raise it under cover?

Yes Sue, it’s been in the greenhouse all winter. Now showing signs of being a pink flower. Thanks for joining in 🙂 .

It looks a bit Campanula-ish!

Thanks Cammomile but I don’t think so. It’s a maddening mystery . . . where’s Bamboo when you need her?!
