Can anyone tell me what this is?

It's fascinating but it is toxic - but then so are many plants in our gardens.  If you have children in the garden I'd pull it up now.  If not I would just make sure it's pulled up and bagged and binned before the seeds begin to ripen.  Wear long sleeves and gloves. 

What is it?

I think it's one of those plants that's perfect for informal little wild-ish corners - it covers bare patches of soil - if it spreads where you don't want it then just pull it up. 

Can anyone tell me what this is?

I find that I do get some flowering sideshoots from below the main flower spike, so I cut to just below it.  The sideshoots are nothing like as splendid as the main one, but they do provide some colour in the garden

They can get fairly tall and will spread a bit if that helps.

Have you any idea what variety of rose they are?  If not, please can you post a picture of the flower and of the whole bush.

To post a picture on here you need to click on the green tree icon on the toolbar above where you type your post, and follow the instructions.  It doesn't work for phones - yet.

Ok I've been busy while you lot have been rabbiting. Shredded the philadelphus and viburnum I murdered, and big bits of hawthorn. Fed OH  and made coffee.

Now I've just got to gather up all the little bits of hawthorn and shred those.

kef and Dove...

You've had too much sun. polishing parquet floors and ironing.... !!!!!!!!

Lie down in a darkened room until the feeling passes. Drink plenty. Nearly pimms o clock

 

It's ok Fidget - I haven't done the parquet - I couldn't lift the polisher over the piles of stuff in the garage - OH will have to help me at the weekend.  I've been potting on plants instead, and been out and bought wine - now my feet are up for a few mins before I make a ragu for spag bol.   Is that ok?

Hi Louise 

Do you prune these roses each year?  If so, how hard?
