Planting Sorrel

I have Sorrel seedlings now (September). Can I grow on in pots then plant out in the spring. I do not have a heated greenhouse just normal one. I live in East Anglia, which is mild in winter usually.

If you can keep the plants warm during cold conditions, then they should be ok. Here is growing information: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/herbs/sorrel/sorrel-herb.htm

I have listed 2 links to help you select the proper use of herbicides to rid the sheep sorrel.
Make sure you make the correct identification before applying the chemicals to your lawn.

Wood Sorrel

Is there any reason I can’t use the wood sorrel (five-petal yellow flowers) as a ground cover in my garden? If I simply leave it alone in the garden, will I regret it?

I think you might regret it. Oxalis corniculata L. is not a plant you can simply leave alone in the garden because it is very invasive and difficult to remove once it takes hold. You won't be able to contain it just to the borders of your garden. For more information, please visit the following link:

Candycane Sorrel Growth Time

How long does it take a Candycane sorrel bulb to grow? I would like to plant in containers for Christmas.

Candycane Sorrel is a bulb that would be difficult to time or force for Christmas plants.

Here is a link with growing information.

Identification of Plant in Our Garden

I wonder if you can let me know what the plant in the attached photograph is, as I have no idea whether it’s a weed or garden plant. It seems to really like our garden and grows profusely every summer and looks very pretty.

ANSWERS

I do believe that is Cape Sorrel.

I was wondering if you could tell which plant/flower is in the attached picture? This is in my front yard and I would like to get a second one that matches it.

Thanks!
