I am sorely miffed!! After enjoying Mr. Fothergills Petunias last year, I found there were some seeds left so sowed them a few weeks ago. Up popped the first Petunia leaves, then these fern type ones....I can't believe I've saved seeds in a packet and not marked it...Lol! A hard lesson learnt. I've so many of these...they could be Larkspur or Aconite...:o(( If they are Aconite...hopefully Ivorine. Has anyone any ideas if they are anything else please?

They certainly look like aconite leaves, Janey.

I doooon't think they're Petunias, though - I'd put money on that!! LOL.

Oh Barbara.....I know!! They must be from the Aconite Ivorine I bought last year....I certainly wouldn't have saved the purple ones as I've a few of those...or would I...Lol! Another senior moment...:o((

i know they arent petunias janey but havent a clue to what, but as you and barbara agree then you must be right ;o) look healthy anyway

they could equally be larkspur at this early stage. lets hope ivorine though.

The thing is I don't think I would have saved Larkspur as they keep seeding themselves in the garden each far the Ivorine plant hasn't shown so I think that's a gonna. The leaf though isn't quite as full and has less lobes than the purple Aconite...but maybe that's because they're only very young. I shall just have to wait and see....and let you know!!.....:o))
