Changing the subject, I'm looking for a tall Echinacea, my mom use to have some that grew to about 5-6 feet and purple flower always covered in butterfly's during the summer.

I've looked everywear for it but cant find any that tall, with all this expert  knowledge on here I just know someone will know it   and where I can purchase would be great. 

Echinacea purpurea 'Magnus'?  https://www.woottensplants.com/product/echinacea/echinacea-purpurea-magnus/ They describe it as being a bit shorter than you say, but I've seen it top 5 ft.

Pdoc - enjoy!!!  It's tipping it down here so hope the weather picks up for you.  We might even head that way ourselves at the weekend just to give ourselves a break from Aged P stuff.  Check out the Jolly Sailors at Brancaster Staithe - good food and good beer, and Brancaster Staithe is one of our most favourite places in the world to sort our heads out with wide open spaces, mud, wind and seabirds

I once saw a hoopoe in Suffolk - blown over from the continent on strong winds in late March - they do turn up in the southern UK but they're really a bird of southern France, Spain and areas bordering the Med. http://www.rspb.org.uk/discoverandenjoynature/discoverandlearn/birdguide/name/h/hoopoe/

They have a very distinctive flight, more like a butterfly than a bird

Plant ID please

A friend on a cookery forum has this suddenly appeared in a plant pot used for tomatoes last year.  It is 4-6 inches across and she says it 'has no height to it'. 

My best thought is that it's a bit like radicchio but she can't think where it's come from.  She grew some mixed salad leaves a few years ago, but not in that pot.


 Anyone got any better ideas?

It's ok KEF - Edd has explained himself on the Hello Forker's thread - I think he sometimes has the typist's equavelent of 'Foot in Mouth' syndrome

Great news Matty - onwards and upwards

BL, take it easy and get well soon

Everyone else with aches, pains, sprains, lurgies or sadness - have a load of ((hugs))

It's so lovely to see the hedgebanks full of primroses as I drive through the countryside at the moment.  Hope you see lots of them Pdoc - are you doing North Norfolk or Minsmere or one of the smaller reserves?
