... as a former teacher of English, I can't help cringing at the missing comma in such comments as: "Lovely Verdun" rather than "Lovely, Verdun". No doubt Verdun is a lovely person in his own right (even reaching perfection after shaving) but the poster probably meant his garden / flowers / photos etc looked lovely, not the man himself.

 Hmm, I'm pretty sure that 99.9% of the time 'Lovely Verdun' is exactly what is meant 

just as 'Lovely Hosta' usually refers to the Forum member rather than a good looking plant 

Lovely Papi Jo 

Grass ID. I hate them personally.

I'm a grass novice, but I think the white line in the leaf indicates that it's a Miscanthus - Hosta and Verdun will undoubtedly be able to confirm that or not, and tell you much more than I can.

Watch out, I used not to be that keen on grasses ... but they're addictive 

What Is This Plant?

I would keep it in a container - they make good container plants - lots of info here 

Hope that helps

I also think it may be sparrows - they seem to like yellow flowers especially.

Frank   my mistake   I didn't see the word 'take' in the first sentence of your second paragraph.  Mea culpa - should have put my glasses on.

I'll get back to making the mint jelly 

Moving House in Winter

Just a thought - If you're selling the house (rather than moving from a rented property) you must inform the buyers that you will be removing plants from the garden, as legally they form part of the fixtures and fittings.

Frank - I said don't  use the 4 in 1 now - just like you I said leave it until Spring  ... so did Verdun 

You said more or less the same as us.
