Talkback: Gardening makes you happy

i hope all gardeners are not like me. sometimes i go into the garden with a cup of tea just to sit and relax, but as soon as i enter the garden, something catches my attention and the cup of tea is forgotten. By the time i get back to the tea, its too cold. There have been times where a half drank cup of tea or two have been lost in the borders. . i just love gardening. i dont know what i would do without it. sometimes its back breaking, sometimes its sad when u loose a loved plants, or the cats dig up all yr new plants or the winds knock everything down, but its great when everything comes together. the icing on the cake is, when people commend u on how beautiful yr garden looks. i am addicted.

A helping hand to identify the plant

its a low growing sunflower, i think.

Please identify my flowering plant in my garden

from the leaves, it looks like the wild double flowered opium poppies.

Can you identify this plant and is it ill/deficient?

That was the only thing that germinated, and it got a lot of TLC as well. Unfortunately I was only  looking after a rogue plant .

i bought some kew seeds of some exotic euphorbia from T & M with yellow flowers. This was what I got. This was planted 3 yrs from a seedling. It's about 6ft tall with white flowers with fishy smell. Should I dig it up and bin it? It's in the middle of my raised bed.
