I saw this in England quite a bit. Would love to know what it is. I have some seeds and want to grow it on my rooftop in NYC.

Welcome! Nancy. You already got answers when you posted this earlier here. If you're having difficulty navigating the site do let us know so we can help, although actually I think the thread was split into two so that may be why you lost the answers. Now the last two answers on the other thread, link below, don't relate to this ID.

I tried to add the link back in to the above post but although it showed in the edit box it doesn't show in the thread. The above post doesn't make sense without it Confused

Hi Sooby,
I am not a frequent user of this site, and I thought I posted it yesterday but today I could not find it, and so I posted again thinking that perhaps yesterday I did not fully click all the right things. Perhaps you could tell me the best way to keep track of a thread/topic once posted.
Thanks

I expect you lost it because yesterday you added it to an existing thread for another ID whereas today you started a separate one for it. You can keep track of threads you started by selecting the two little rectangular thingys beside your profile icon at the top left of the pages. For threads that you want to follow but didn't start, select "Watch" at the top of the thread under the forum name. I think I've got the latter right, someone correct me if I'm wrong.

I had asked Dave to split it off into it's own thread because as sooby said, it appeared in the middle of someone else's ID thread.
Sue, that thread then was confusing as two additional comments were also transferred which actually belonged to the originating thread. Dave said he would fix it and it looks like he had to put everything back in one thread.
