Forgot the photo, sorry - and now it doesn't want to show the photo! Back to the plant books, I guess! Oh - think it's done it this time Sorry if it's huge - took it with my phone.
New garden........ overtaken by lily of the valley, bloomin' spanish bluebells and horrible dusky dirty pink grannies bonnets!! Lots have been removed (didn't realise how deeply aquilega could root - I've had an easier time removing the occasional dandelion) ......... as has an astilbe which I absolutely hate with a vengeance.
I've actually just sent a query to GW about pheasant berry as I want it (them) in my back garden............ I don't mind pulling up when necessary. Have discovered one shrub growing at the top end of the valley but haven't seen any seedlings around anywhere.............
Oh and Japanese Anemone I love so much I've planted another two............ so glad I didn't destroy it when I thought it was lavatera
houttynia chameleon, that creeping miniature violet, a nettle like thing with a horrible smell, macleaya cordata, rhus typhina sending up suckers everywhere - I could go on!
I'd certainly add the common Celandine and Butterbur......neither of which I planted but someone did
And of course a valerian - not the common officianalis - which grows about 3 feet and seeds everywhere! And the perennial sweet pea coming up all over the shop - took the weedkiller to that this year..............
I left houttynia chameleon at the last house I owned thank god, but I inherited Jap Anenome - I hate it. Cant get rid of the stuff and next door has got it now so even though I try my best to dig it all up the damn thing returns from next door. The other thing is comfrey, hate that too, I havent planted it but baby plants keep turning up everwhere like a bad penny.
