Horrible stringy weed - what is it?

Posted: 26/05/2015 at 14:13

It is a Potentilla but not the one generally called Silverweed. The leaves are too green and not as serrated as Silver weed. I could go out and take a picture of the latter, but it is too dratted cold!

Or Viburnum tinus with a bad case of Viburnum beetle?

Or a Rowan in full bloom. Some folks find the scent from them rather lass than pleasant.

Can u please help me identify these

Green alkanet?

Funny you should ask about a white Muscari, I have got some in a place where there has never been any Muscari at all. They are not white M. ambrosiacum either. The flowers are slightly different and less tightly packed. Wonder if they have come in compost from plants we have bought?

One of the Weigelas. Usually does not get pruned, except to remove dead or crossing branches to keep an open shape. Any pruning is done after flowering has finished.

When ours blocks the path I just take the shears to it and cut it back when needed.

Any time. Just take a piece about 2 inches long which has no flowers on it. You may have to wait until it has finished flowering though. Gently strip the leaves from the bottom of the cutting and put the bottom half in a pot of gritty compost and keep somewhere lightly shaded. They root very easily. If you look round the base of the plant you may find shoots with roots already.

Help please on starting a thread!

Geranium, not well up on the  varieites.

Geum, probably urbanum which is an absolute thug.
