Yes i think it will be ok to overwinter in pots.When planted out next spring you should get nice strong plants.

I haven't seen froglets like that for years Aliesh, I used to worry about mowing the grass. Good excuse not to

Yes it reminds me of when i was a child, when it was raining we used to collect tiny frogs from the edge of the road kerbs and put them in a bucket. Not brave enough to do it now!

In our wild garden where i have my allotment there are lots of little froglets hopping about. If i water the ground they all appear there must be hundreds of them  it's hard not to stand on them. There is a small lodge at the top of our land i think they must have come from there. Has anyone else got lots of froglets?

I have the gaint one for the first time this year my late father in law planted them.

I was also wondering if they should be cut down. I thought perhaps the birds may eat the seeds, does anyone know if they do? ITs a great plant if you have the space!

Thanks for all your replies. I think it is white poplar it's not in my garden but on our family owned land where i have my allotment. My late father in law always kept it tidy  ( well sort of ) there are two more areas where i would like to create wild flower meadows,also infected with the suckers. Not had time to go up today but i will have a look again  tomorrow for the main tree, there is a stream that runs on the edge of our land could it have spread across ? Think i have started something i will regret!
