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!

Wouldnt it just!  Lovely ideas, both.  I have had in mind to buy Hakonechloa macra 'Aureola' for a while now, only wondering where to put it and now I know!  And I'll pair it with hostas.  Thank you all

I would appreciate some advice please.  We have a balcony over our front door with new railings and I want to put a couple of pots up there as it looks a bit sparse.   It is north facing, and gets no direct sunlight until mid to late afternoon, and then just a small amount, but it is a bright spot as there is nothing other than the body of the house to stop the light.  We used to have a clematis montana over it but that has now been taken out - it did fine there, although being north facing it didnt romp quite as rampantly as it might have done.   We live in a fairly formal style Edwardian house.  Most people hereabouts put box topiary out, which does have the right sort of look for the house, but my neighbour with the adjoining balcony has done just this and I do feel rather as though I would by copying her if I did the same!  I was thinking of something like hebe which has a good rounded shape, but does anyone else have any bright ideas.  I definitely need the sleek look rather than anything 'cottagey'.  Thanks
