I'm going to see if its more than one plant, and if it is I will move one and if it survives I'll move the rest after collecting seed. I've no idea how it got into my garden and I haven't seen it growing in any neighbouring ones.

Wow, thanks guys.. Its growing in a gap between a raised bed and a hawthorn hedge. I will keep an eye on it and try to save some seed and if I get enough, will share.

Me too, do you get a scent of orange when you smell the flowers?

Don't move. Some of the drystone wall fences I've seen on the farm where we holiday in Wales have posts stuck in the top with barbed wire strung between them. Definitely speak to the farmer as not only are your plants suffering, but luckily you haven't been the other side when the wall comes down.

The common Malva, springs up everywhere like a weed, but does look nice.

If you have this phlomis you will not have weeds in it. It does seed itself about so you willhave 'free' plants ti transplant. There are also deep yellow, pink and purple varieties, which do not look like the one you have, but are just as good.

What about the cat schoo plant? Supposed to smell awful to cats but not to us and has blue flowers.

Could be Nut, but I've got Diablo D'or in my front garden and the leaves are dark brown.

Mystery plant at the bottom of my garden. I've never seen this before and it isn't something I planted.
