No-one live near us, we are very isolated here.

Pity you don't live near me, you could have plants of various forms of G. rivale for the asking.

If you keep it dead headed then they are not root invasive like some things. They will seed around and yes they are promiscuous, so there are lots of new named things around. Many of them not much different from each other.

Geum rivale is Water avens.

There are various forms of it, G.r. snowflake is obviously white and G.r. Leonard's Var. is a double red. G.r. Lemon Drop is a nice pale yellow. Dead easy in damp soil. Need to assiduously dead head or the can seed around and the seed heads do cling to clothes rather badly.

As long as the soil is kept moist then they should be  all right straight into the garden. Unless of course it is like ours and they get lost in the weeds.

That looks like a bad case of Viburnum beetle attack on a V.tinus. Difficult to treat. All you can do is spray with a suitable insecticide, underside of the leaves too and hope.

The day ahead.

There are advantages to being unemployable, even if the money is lousy. I was forced to retire at 48 due to ill health (Stop work or be dead in 12 months is what both my Doctor and a Specialist said).

So today, I have been mostly picking fruit, splitting and potting up various Herbaceous plants, playing on here and writing a bit more of a story I am working on.

Hope everyone else's day goes as well as possible for them.

Not what it looks like

That is definitely a Phytolacca and it is the spitting image of the one I have which came as esculenta.
