Plant in need of ID

Posted: 21/05/2014 at 10:53

I've looked at Fool's parsley online and in my Keble Martin - doesn't look quite right - I've taken a close up of a leaf - what do you think?

 Although the main stem is cylindrical, the leaf stems have the groove on the upper surface like Cow parsley. 

Sorry, it's a bit dark - I didn't use flash in case the white paper flared.  If you want one with flash let me know.

Thanks Salino   

Nut, I don't think we did - I've just been and picked a leaf and had a good sniff - nothing other than a very faint cow-parsley type smell.

Cheap strawberries in Lancashire? or online?

Are they not rescuable?  If you plant them up again quickly they'll probably do as well as new ones. 

couple of plants for ID please!

Think the twiny one might be Clematis armandii? 


First one possibly weigela

I think that type of suit says different things to people of different generations and from different backgrounds

I was telling Nut yesterday about this plant that has appeared in the garden - it appeared last year and possibly the year before, but in an area which was meant to be lawn, so got mowed.  

This year the lawn is no longer there, it's now the little wilderness behind the new pond and the plant has appeared again.

Feathery carrot-like foliage but softer, and growth like an umbellifer but not one I recognise - round stem.  We've marshes nearby so I did wonder about Water Dropwort, but I think the leaves are too finely divided for that.

The gardener-before-last at this address seems to have been a 'proper gardener' so it might be an interesting cultivated plant - or it might be from wild bird seed - or ............... anyone got any ideas?


Hazels looking for a home

I have two lovely healthy and well-grown native hazel bushes in pots surplus to requirements - Nutcutlet very kindly gave me three, but due to a re-jig of  garden plans and more room needed for vegetables, I can only plant one.

She said that in the first instance I should try to find them a good home - if no one wants them I'll take them back to her.

I'm willing to meet up with gardeners in Norfolk or North Suffolk who would like to give them a happy home. 

Anyone interested?

Bumping again - anyone grow asparagus?

what pond plants are these

Posted: 21/05/2014 at 08:17

Definitely doesn't look like the Hornwort I bought for my pond. 


If you're plants are British Native you can probably identify them here
