If it is going up in the centre, he is right, if you leave it another couple of weeks, I t will probably flower and then  form seed. Use them up now.

I have delphiniums that shape too, Chicky. I've trussed up the sweet peas. The lady I rashly promised them to for a wedding next weekend is coming Thursday night to collect them . The colour scheme is blue, but unless I am going colour blind, navy blue and blue velvet sweet peas are purple.

I hope she won't be too disappointed.

Didn't the brits do well at Wimbledon?

Clarington, have a look at the ingredients list on your detox tea. Usually they contain a lot of senna pods. Make sure you have a clear gangway to the loo.

If its a seedling and growing wild, then do it. You can name it what you like.  Michaels stripey? If it is on someone elses land you will need their permission to take a cutting. If its on waste land or at the side of the road, I would just do it. 3 inches of non flowering shoot, gritty compost. Roots in about four weeks at this time of year.

Why does your neighbour keep spraying it?

Are you talking to each other?

Is this a no no?

It depends  on what the plants are and how big they are.   Have you a photo if you don't know what they are?

Is this a weed?

If its growing wild its probably a seedling. In which case it wont have a name.

I know it as the umbrella sedge.(Cyperus involucratus) It likes damp conditions and seeds into pots that are not well drained.
