Thank you everyone, I'm grateful for your comments. I am going to repost once my laptop is repaired with a photo of the one I like, and queries about whether I can keep it to  a manageable size.  Have a good week everyone!!

Thanis.  I wonder if that is the one I want - there is one I can see in my neighbourhood which is already about a metre high so I may not be on the right track with Firepower after all.

I admire these and would like to plant them by my front door.  However I have trouble identifying the one I like most, as when I try to buy a specimen they are identified by variety names none of which I recognise.  I want the one with red leaves/berries in the autumn, white flowers earlier.  Is that 'Firepower'?  Also does anyone know how quickly they grow? Their final size as advertised is ultimately going to be too big.  I can take a height of about 5' but dont want a massive girth to the plant, there isnt room.  Any suggestions? Thanks 

Anyone know what this plant might be?

Oh you might be right.  I have looked at images on google and it is similar.  thanks, it is in the wrong place but that does help me choose where to move it.  Happy to her if anyone else concurs

Hi, I thought this was Maidenhair Fern but pretty sure now it is't.  It is growing very vigorously this year, about to burst into little flowers which I seem to remember are whitish/yellow but not entirely sure.   Any suggestions?  Thanks

I think it looks like "Little Rambler'

ID would be great

I think 'mind your own business' too, unless they have a scent of creme de menthe, in which case they might be Corsican Mint.  Both good in paving cracks etc but the first one is a devil if it escapes into the flowerbed or into the lawn.  If it were me I would yank them out now before while they are still in mounds and not on their way to the other side of the garden!

Canna lily slow to shoot

Posted: 28/05/2016 at 15:04

HI I potted up a Canna bulb this year in readiness for a new hotspot I had created in the garden.  It grew a shoot about 2-3 inches tall and I planted it out, but the slugs got it immediately. Once I stopped cursing them. I potted it back up again and brought it back in thinking I would give it a chance to recover and get some real strength on before trying again. Since then a second shoot has appeared, and the first is showing sighs of regrowth, but the second shoot is still only about 2 inches tall and really shows no signs of hurrying up and getting on with it.  Should I keep this one in a pot until next spring and try again then?  It isnt going to reach any gorgeous height this year I dont think!
