Much too sunny and hot for parsley and chervil.  I have parsley in a trough in the shade and will do the same for chervil.   Needs to be a hot and sunny herb.


See original post

 Ah ............ I was thinking of sorrel too, but that won't like it hot either.  


Greek basil?  Summer savory?

It's one of the willowherbs - Epilobium - there are various types ... those tall pinky flowers that colonize river banks, railway sidings and used to crop up on bomb sites etc ... hence the another name ... Fireweed.


The fluffy seeds drift around in the wind and they root wherever they land ... they're pretty easy to recognise and pull up ... just keep doing it and don't let them flower and seed ... you'll soon get on top of them, but stay alert each spring for new seedlings.

23C here already!!!   If it carries on like this I'll have to hunt in the wardrobe and find a kaftan.


Don't think it was a bite ... I get a bit of dry skin/irritation from time to time and I probably rubbed my ear with mucky fingers after spreading compost/manure or something ... duh!  It's a dangerous lark this gardening stuff 


Hoping all is well with those who have 'stuff' going on with families etc ........ life don't get any easier 


Did anyone hear 'The Life Scientific' this morning on R4 ........ flippin' fascinating - how plants decide what to do .... http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b08q5wxx
