    IMG_0746.JPGIMG_0747.JPG I have a habit of tipping spent compost, after pricking out, here, there and everywhere. So when I saw these sprout in a tub I thought..... oh great! More cosmos :) Now they've got true leaves coming I'm pretty certain they're not cosmos but I can't think what they are :scratch:
    Whatever they are, they've germinated outdoors, with no protection so possibly a hardy annual? I did wonder if they where datura but that seems unlikely. Any help is much appreciated :blue thumb:

      Really? :hapfeet:
      Woo hoo:yay:
      I only got one to germinate this year and my (saved ) seed is getting on in years:old: so I've been pampering it like a baby :heehee:
      I've just checked my notes....
      sown 16/2
      1 germinated 6/3
      so I probably transplanted it and chucked the compost about early April.
      Wow! I thought they where divas :heehee:
      Thank you @pete :dbgrtmb:

      Datura can be funny old things to germinate, I think the word is "erratic", you cosset them and they do nothing, then expose them to all kinds of varying conditions and they come up like cress.
