Talkback: Self-seeding plants

Posted: 13/05/2012 at 11:19
While weeding and spreading manure under my Fatsia Japonica in early March I found two young red-stemmed Dogwoods! I left the larger one where it was and moved the smaller one nearer to it.

I can only think that bird poo is the likeliest delivery system.

I love motorway verges. Especially when covered in ox-eye daisies. I have them, as well as teasel and hawthorn, in my garden.

Also cowslips appear to be very populous this year. There's a huge carpet of them along the A50 in Derbyshire between J24 of the M1 and Derby. Stunning.

I think Carol said,'sieved' loam.

Talkback: Creeping buttercup

Half of my lawn, or grass really, is buttercups! And I love having them. Each to their own obviously but the info here should acknowledge the counter argument.

Remember that our bees are struggling at the moment.

All this info about weeds seems to be for those who want an antiseptic, souless, striped bowling green.

Talkback: Clover

Mmm. More bad advice. The info here should be rewritten to take into account that clover is incredibly important for bees. Some kind of disclaimer at least.

I've bought clover as wildflowers from garden centers and inserted them into my lawn. The bees go crazy for the lovely purple or white flowers.

Talkback: Common daisy

What!? I love having daisies in my lawn. I don't consider them to be a weed at all. It's encouraging that the consensus is to save the daisy. Please delete this info or at least acknowledge that there are those who love having them around.
