Nut, tree peony seeds arrived today, thanks.

I also received some seeds in damp kitchen roll and some in an envelope. Were these akebia seeds?

Think its a Euonymus but not sure which one.

Can anyone help ID this plant?

Purple toadflax, very easy to pull up if you don't want it, or it is for me with my popeye arms. Didn't know there was a pink one thought. That would look pretty.

I would have to wear a fascinator to Fidget's nuptials, hats don't look good on me and a beanie is out unless its snowing.

You'll like the cathedral, lovely stained glass windows. I managed to sneak 3 photos as they don't like them being taken.

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.
