Can anyone help identifying a plant?

Posted: 05/06/2012 at 16:54

If you pull a  piece away with a little root, you will have your own plant. Just keep it watered until it takes hold. Beautiful - snow in summer

I would not cut the whole thing down but cut out one or two of the old stems back to the base and tie in the new stems in the direction I would want them to go. That way you still get flowers at the top on the conifer(if you cut out the right stem!) and at the bottom you have shoots to flower and grow where you want them. Then depending on growth, you could prune out another old shoot next year or the following year to suit.Give the plant a good feed after you have pruned and be prepared to tie in the new growth as the plant will probably romp away!

It sounds like it might be a verbascum. It will probably send up a flower spike a metre or so from the middle of the rossette which will be yellow.

Hi the red one is Hypericum -will have yellow flowers and followed by black berries.Probably self seeded by birds.

The second looks like an Aster - probably the common purple one, will flower in Aug/Sept. Probably self seeded by the wind.

As they say - you can't have everything. Beer traps mean at least they die happy! Other things you could do - encourage birds; make a pond if you haven't got one; make log piles for hedgehogs, frogs, toads etc. You could also pick up the snails and release them in a local wood - just not too local as they have homing instincts and will come back to your garden!!

does anyone know what this is please?
