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


another few ID's please!

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.


Moggie deterrent - humane suggestions please!

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.

My Kousa has flowered for the first time. I have had it for about 7 years at the back of a raised bed border. It was worth the wait.

Name that shrub

We used to have a roadsweeper who wore that outfit when I was a little girl. Perhaps its linen and that's why it looks scruffy.

Its a teasel, they get to 6 foot plus in my garden. Finches like the seeds (they also like evening primrose seeds too)

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