Butchered my honeysuckle

It's not dead.  I tried to kill mine last year but it grew back.  May take a while, but it will be back.

 They're all from the front.  My back is still nowhere near presentable. The clematis is the only one from the back garden and I had to chop it down along with all the weeds you can see.  Hopefully in a couple of years I can post pictures of a real back garden.


Lovely pictures all   Here's some from my garden.

unknown plant

You need to get rid of it and do it very carefully as Dove says.

Without seeing the whole plant it is difficult.  It looks like Carex pendula or pendulous Sedge which forms very large clumps if you let it and self seeds everywhere.  Established clumps are very hard to dig out. 

I'm no grass expert so someone on the forum may correct me.  However, if it is pendulous Sedge then I can tell you of my experience of it. I used to have some in my last garden.  I was forever pulling up seedlings and cursed when I tried digging up an established clump.  It is brilliant, however, for dark, shady areas or problem corners. I planted it in shade to fill a gap and it was much more well-behaved.  I am looking to acquire some for my back garden, which has a longish deep border that is in shade a lot of the time, it will help to fill it out quite nicely.  It is beautiful but plant it in full sun in good soil at your peril!

Chelsea photos

Obelixx I saw this thread when you first posted it but didn't follow the links as I watched all the BBC coverage on the iplayer and was all Chelsea'd out!!  Just been having a look today and I think they should employ you next year, I saw a lot more of the gardens than I did on the tv.  Thank you so much for taking the time to do this, they're lovely photos and much more "Chelsea" than the BBC coverage.
