I think the plant I have is tellima- looks like a heuchera but looser and its flowers are similar to heuchera too, but sparser. It grows like mad! When it gets bigger, it seems to clump into a columnar shape. I know you'll ask for pictures but I'm not technologically capable.....

Plant ID please

Can you take a photo which shows the flower and leaf up close?

I would love programmes to give advice about regional gardening in the UK- how useful to be given information but also be educated about the gardening possibilities around the UK

You're right nutcutlet- was trying to do it the lazy way! Imagine winter jasmine entwined with a summer clematis!

What perennials are ŷou currently obsessed about for next year?

Pulmonaria blue ensign is a beauty but my obsession this year, as it is every year: geraniums! So many varieties and, oh, their evening glow! CAN'T WAIT

thanks for advice- does anyone know of a climber which grows about 12 feet?

We live in a semi-detached which is pebble-dashed. I would like to grow a Virgina Creeper up a South-East wall. I know it is self-clinging but is it safe to grow in strong winds? I don't want the plant pulling pebble dash off the side of the house- the idea is to make it look more beautiful and for the plant to live!

Thanks and a happy new year!

Whilst we're on roses- anyone know how to treat black spots on leaves organically?

what is it

Knapweed does suffer from mildew- make sure you water it a lot when it's still young. The bees seem fond of mine! Absolutely hot enough for me- you?

Today I feel so happy....

We watched a tiny blue tit eating bugs off our flourishing monkshood- an absolute joy. Like the man said, take time to stop and stare!
