Is it perhaps an Olearia macrodonta?

Planting beds in a greenhouse

The biggest problem with beds in the glasshouse is removing and replacing the soil in them which you really need to do every few years or risk a build up of pathogens which reduce the cropping.

Please help me identify

It certainly does look like Geum, probably urbanum, which is an terrible seed weed.

Not C, purpurescens either. Leaves are wrong. That is a fairly standard C. persicum. Kept in the right conditions it will flower for months. Not hardy though so once temps drop below 5c it is going to struggle.

Plant id please - red berries

Could be Lonicera maackii. In which case, no the berries are not eidble to humans.

Young one certainly could. they are also very good climbers. All you can really do is to protect the tree. Encircle  it with wire netting or if your pocket runs to it try an electrified fence.

Plant identification No. 2 please

Does have the look of the native Privet which is deciduous rather than evergreen so the leaves are a lighter green than the normal hedging type.

Wyevale gone to pot!

Just have a look at what Woevales have done to Bridgemere. Used to be full of their own grown plants and now...............horrendous.

Anyone recognise this plant?
