Weed (?) identification - when they are seedlings

Posted: 04/04/2015 at 18:03

Then you'd best contact the web team at this address .

Of course, as it's the holidays there may not be many people in the office for a few days.  Looking forward to seeing your pics eventually - perhaps it'll be even easier to ID them by then

Perhaps you could let her know somehow that with the hedge at it's current height, no matter how you try, you've been unable to see into her bedroom window.

Which clematis are they Verdun?  I've got room for a few more if you really don't have the room

Isn't life complicated at the moment?  I was listening to the news while doing some noisy washing up and could have sworn they were talking about ISIS - but it seemed very odd and more than usually worrying - until I worked out later that they were talking about ISAS

Will, can you post some photos of your garden - maybe we'll get some clues about what you can do to perk things up a bit

Yeah Berghill - I can imagine they'll be very tasty! But I'm worried that each one of those spuds that grows becomes another plant next year.. and so on..

Only if you don't remove them and cook them - and by then it'll all be compost and you'll have emptied the bin and spread it all on your veg patch or wherever, and you'll have started another bin full

Have you tried clicking on the green tree icon on the toolbar above where you type your post - if you get an error message try clicking on the OK button and waiting a bit ... good luck

If I can be slightly unpleasant, whatever your religious bent or not, our bodies are just clever machines and it is the effect we have on people and the memories that we leave them with that matter. Not where our physical bits end up after death.

Everyone deals differently, some cry, some go quiet, some laugh. Are any of these people wrong? Not at all, losing someone is dreadful and no one should feel guilty for not being able to tend a grave afterwards be that for geographical reasons or emotional.

Do I think tending a grave is bad? No, not one iota. I just personally didn't want to.

Absolutely agree Steve - 100%

I agree with Punkdoc - in my experience Blue Angel takes a little while to work up to being 'very large'
