Is it worth keeping or a weed ?
You may remember me recently sending in a photo of a plant and asking what it was. I'd set some malope tryffida seeds from a packet and this had grown along with them but was very different.
It has grown considerably and I hope you can tell me what it is and whether to keep it or chuck it. Thanks
Please God let me send it the right way up.




I answered on your earlier question Hank ;o)

Sorry S, dammit - must have missed it.

Found it thanks to you guys. I didn't know I'd sent the question twice. My ipad has been messing me about just recently.

ANTIRRHINUM ! Just saw picture. Looke great. It's nearly 10 inches tall now? Should I put it out in the front garden ? Stake it ?

Oh dear, it appears I should have pinched the top out much sooner than this. Should I do it now or let it keep growing ?
Sorry to go on but quite excited. I hope it's perrenial.

I never bother pinching the tops and they still bush out, after the first spike has finisheded if not before. No need to stake. They can be perennial in a mild winter and they also self seed.

Thanks Sue. No pinching. Can I now put it out in the garden ? It's almost a foot tall and very healthy.
