Plant or weed please

Looks like Herb Robert aka Cranesbill (from the shape of the seedheads) - a wild flower, very 'aromatic' foliage when crushed - foliage reddens in dry conditions. 

What's this on my tree leaves? x

Lesley, Wonky is very useful I agree, but it's taken quite a few years of basic groundwork to get her to this useful stage

This is the one I have

It's taken a little time to find out how to make it 'work for me' but now I find it really useful - also it's the perfect size to pop in my handbag to take on garden visits and note 'must haves' and 'maybe's.

The carbonara I ate in Italy was made with wild mushrooms from the pasture and woodlands - doesn't come much more authentic or classic than that

Don't think they make 'em more reputable than Kelways


Posted: 20/06/2015 at 16:34

Kelways are one of the best. A long established family firm and have won lots of medals including golds at Chelsea.  I've not bought from them recently, but I'm sure you'll not have any problems, they have a superb reputation.
