What is this plant in my garden?

Posted: 25/05/2017 at 17:00

Yes, it is poisonous and that does look like it.

Plant ID please?

Possibly a variegtaed Viburnum tinus Bewley's Varigated. Pure guess work though.

Flame weed killer

Best way to use is to go over the weeds on day 1. Wait 24 hours and then do it again. I find mine very useful for reducing the number of seeds which weeds seem to produce.

Has no effect on Pearlwort,(Sagina procumbens)  but then neither does Roundup or any other weed killer.

Have fun doing it!

Help please in identifying this plant

Looks like the infamous Ground elder to me. Not the easiest of plants to kill off even with weed killer. All you can do is keep hitting it.

You may have to drill some holes into the limestone to put the plants in. Hopefully your quarry face is not too hard to do that. Had another think and came up with Erinus alpinus, white, pink and red forms. 

You would probably get more specialist advice on how to actually plant the face with plants from members of the Scottish Rock Garden Club. Their Website is really good.

How lovely for you. Dianthus of all kinds love lime and well drained situations. Silver saxifrages adore lime cliffs too. Aubrieta and campanula would soon get their roots into the cracks and crevices.the alpine forms of Achillea would be happy too. Look out for the forms of Erodium and the smaller Geranium sanguineum types.
