This should sort it out

... it looks as if it's right by your house wall so it needs to be killed off  ... it probably came from a seed in a dropping from a blackbird perched on the roof edge.

I thought the pom pom makers were probably more trouble than they're worth but thanks for doing the research for me Nanny B.  I hope the sun shines brighter on your family tomorrow ((hugs))

Yes Common Elder ... Sambuccus Nigra.


Not Ground Elder, which is a completely different plant and not related. 

Identidy of my seeds?

They're definitely not hollyhocks, so they're probably phlox ... the leaves look right for phlox

I seem to have spent almost all the afternoon winding wool to make a pompom for son's woolly hat ... I'd forgotten how long it takes to make a pompom ...... an occupation for small children on wet afternoons .... but I only have very big children now 


Time to make gammon egg and chips now ........... form an orderly queue ........

Cheyngel - the plants on the stairs look lovely, and I think it's great that you and your neighbour have found a way of sharing the care of the plants ... maybe in time you can add a little more of your own touches and your neighbour will appreciate that you love growing things too and won't feel that you're trying to take over ... good neighbourly relationships are so important 


it's turned damp and chilly here ... I hope BL and her OH had a nice time at Cromer ... perhaps they had a crab salad at No. 1  instead of on the beach. 

Can't get rid of Whitefly..... HELP!

Is it possible to put the growbags onto boards and drag them outside into the sunshine, fresh air and rain ?

The uncertainty of gardening

Something different always happens here ... even this year when for once I thought I'd have time to do everything properly I go and break my foot so the garden has six weeks to try to run riot ... if it hadn't been for Wonky and OH we'd be surrounded by a jungle

the uncertainty is what I love. Even the same plants are different every year. You grow something new from seed, something dies and opens up a new space, never boring.


See original post

 Without the uncertainty all you're doing is some sort of 'exterior decorating' ... you might as well fill the garden with artificial plants and flowers.
