Phlomis Russelliana, great plant. A very good weed suppressor too. If you leave the flower stalks you get winter interest and also goldfinches love the seeds. You will get lots of plants for free but you need to move them quickly before the roots go deep. You can also get pink flowered, lilac flowered and dark yellow flowered phlomis too.

How do you look at the previous comments? I can't find a way to. And quote has never worked for me.

Feedback from BBC about GW being cancelled

I don't know why the BBC doesn't show the sport on BBC 4 and we can have GW every Friday on 2. They did have one hour programmes a few years ago during the summer months, which was much better.

Plant suggestions please

How about a camellia to match the one you already have.

34. clematis

35. alchemilla mollis

36. I'm thinking lily of the valley. How long are the leaves?

37. foxglove

38. purple toadflax

39. Looks like you've got harebell mixed in with dafodil bulbs. Not sure what the other plant is though.

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.
