Which weeds do you tolerate

Posted: 27/04/2015 at 21:54

I leave a few Herb Robert as they are so pretty. The draw back is that they seed around like mad and I have to weed out most of them. I would always leave the Forget-me-Nots as I love them and my mum gave me mine many years ago.

The history of the land we call our garden.

I live in a bungalow that is built on what was previously a farmhouse. So far we have found a horseshoe, an old clay pipe, a farm gate hinge and a blue Victorian brick.this makes me wonder about the lives of the people who lived and worked on this land. What have you unearthed on your patch of ground?

Can anyone identify this plant for me?

I think you all have solved the mystery for me ! It makes sense to me that my plant is a runner from the plant in the adjoining garden which backs onto mine.Judith's plant looks exactly like mine. I will be kind to it now and move it to a better situation. Thanks all!

Yes nutcutlet it doesn't look too healthy does It! I might move it from the neglected area beside my shed if I can find out what it is. I have a Rowan tree so I thought it might be a sapling, however my tree has thirteen leaves to each twig or panicle and the sapling has fifteen. There is a larger plant just like it next door but the owner has died so there is no one to ask. Looks like I shall just have to wait and see

 This appears to have seeded itself from an adjoining garden which is unlived in at present. The leaves are serrated and the parent plant is about two feet tall or 61cm. Does anyone know what it is?

We have lots of cats around here Kieran and I never get a problem with them on my gravel garden. They love my cat mint in the back garden though and have nearly finished it off rolling in it in ecstasy! I love cats so It doesn't bother me.I do hope they don't get the baby birds though, that would upset me. 

Blind Daffodils

I have had a few which have come up blind and I wonder if the bulbs just get old and worn out. I will certainly try a feed Berghill and see what happens next year .
