Help identifying pond plant

Posted: Yesterday at 09:40

It was  wild celery I was trying to dredge up from the depths of my mind it was very early in the morning and not much coffee had been taken I was thinking of a wild form of a garden plant but which one, which one???

Is Water Dropwort the poisonous one you were thinking of Nut?  Don't think it's that - as far as I know the leaves of WD are more finely cut than those shown - but there are different varieties ...

It's my birthday

Good morning Verdun

Cool and breezy here, but hoping for warmer later in the day. Looks like we're getting rain tomorrow and Sunday, so today had better be for potting on and planting up etc, and Saturday can be for the lawns ... well, that's the plan anyway

I'd better have a look at my gooseberries - last time I looked they were doing well.  Mine are Hinonmaki Yellow which are lovely and sweet when ripe, so I'll pick half of them now-ish while they're green and tart and use them for cooking, then the rest will ripen in a few weeks' time (blackbirds permitting )

Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

sambucus black lace cutting back? confusing advice

Posted: Yesterday at 06:49

Hi Ninio

You'll need to tell us a bit more about your elderberry bush - is it in sun or shade?  Does it get much water or is the soil naturally dry?  What are the garden temperatures? When did you cut it back and how far?

Most of us are UK based so you'll have to help us with added information if we're to advise you
