Plant Id & Plant division

Best time to divide agapanthus will be when flowering is finished. Also save the seed from your flowers, they look like black flecks of burnt wood and you'll have more plants in time, that's if you like it. Agapanthus are a horrendous price in garden centres.

If you have about 4-6 hovering outside and when one or two come along it looks as if they are 'conferring' then you have bees.

I thought this was a great series. When you compare how the gardeners were on camera to how they were in last night's programme, their confidence has grown. I hope there will be another series as I enjoyed it.

A Grass, but which one?

I've had this in my front garden for a while but don't know which type it is. It might be a stip but its not Gigantea or Tenuissima.

Bargain Buy of 2015

What has been your best buy? Mine was a flaming katy for £1.00 and a slipper orchid £9.99. Never seen one 'in the flesh' before so hope I can keep it going.

Shrub ID

This has been growing in our hawthorn hedge and this year decided to be 12ft tall with read berries. I thought it migh be a pyracantha but not sure which one as there are no thorns.

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