Weird one for me - help needed

Sorry, the sweepstake suggestion was a sort of a joke but it'll be fun to see if anyone gets it right - no need to do a separate thread - this one will do.

Rapeseed growing in my lawn - help!

Oh dear Roberta

I think Fg is right, weedkiller will be needed.  Ask your 'helpful' farmer if he has a herbicide which removes broad-leaved weeds from pasture or grain crops while leaving the grass intact.

Good luck

There's orangey........

I've got an orangey-red geum (Flames of Passion ) and an orangey-red aquilegia both growing by a Hosta Hadspens Blue - fab combination

Good morning all

RB - hope grand-daughter makes a quick recovery - you're right, things are so different nowadays, they go in, snip and out again,  none of that fudging around messing bits around stuff so the risk of adhesions etc is less - well, that's my impression of when DIL had hers done - if I'm wrong I'm sure Pdoc will correct me - if his head's not too full of wonderful food and even more wonderful gardens. 

As for Dan Pearson's 'garden', I had a ponder on that too, and I decided that because he'd made it, it is a garden - if it had just happened it wouldn't have been - except if it had just happened 'in a  garden' and it had been allowed/edited - then it would also have been a garden.

Purples and oranges!!!  They saw my new front border last summer!!!!!!!

How interesting!  Have you potted them up?  You could run a sweepstake!

My guess is Crocosmia

Crows will rob bird's eggs and fledglings - maybe the  blackbird had been defending its nest?

9cm plant - how to deal with it

I will agree that it's not good value - I'd keep potting that on for a couple of years before planting it out.

KEF - that was the biggest pinkest hat in Norwich
