Yes, a lovely hardy geranium.

Please identify this weed for me

You have to trample the stems to break the coating and then use glyphosate. Marestail has roots that go down miles. Good luck.

I now have a dozen in 7cm pots, growing strongly.

Lewisia advice please

Plant it on its side, growing out of a wall or something. Lewisias don't like wet in the crown.

How much bigger will my Alpines get

How much bigger will my Alpines get

Taking it as a clockface.

12 o clock is a sempervivum, it will stay that size and grow slowly.

The one at 7  looks like snow in summer, cerastium, and is not an alpine but is used for ground cover. I would move it out on its own.

Sempervivums look good clumped together.

Plant ID please

Bindweed in my compost bin

Posted: 28/05/2016 at 22:13

I'm currently emptying a tardis into old compost sacks. I have one tardis, two daleks, a rotol  and  two builders sacks full, and I'm running out of space.

Does anyone recognise this plant please

The one at the bottom is a dahlia.
