I have a photinia next to a paved area and it hasn't caused any damage.

mole plant

They are wild euphorbias, they keep popping up here and they grow quite big in the limestoney paddock but if they are meant to keep moles away then they don't work. Moles take no notice of them.

Morning all.

OL, I'm pretty sure that normal cosmos is an annual. Anyway, it's so easy from seed. Chocolate cosmos is a tender perennial.

Have a lovely holiday, Panda.

Cool, 14°, but sun is coming out.

Large plant needed for balcony, help appreciated!

Looks lovely, but very expensive.

What's the star in your garden right now

Gladioli have come out in the veggie garden. Picked a bunch with little granddaughter.

My daughter is here with her OH and 2 children so I won't be posting much.

I like most of the things you've mentioned, including oysters and cheesecake (making one for tomorrow, yum). I hate heights and being shut in small spaces.

You can do bum and tum exercises lying down  Glad it's not broken.

Been removing horrid crab like crawling flies off the poor horses.

Off to weed in veggie garden, it's turning into a jungle.

Brugmansia can grow very big. My son has one, very perfumed, like lemony soap.

I'm not watering! We had huge storms yesterday.

I would have suggested canna, but Dave has, so what about a variegated phormium tenax, spiky plant from Australia? They come in reds, greens and golds.
