Can anyone help identify this plant

Looks to me like a Persicaria, probably bistorta.

Another good programme.  A garden can never have too many euphorbias.  Polychroma is positively glowing in my borders at present.  I love primulas too and planted a whole load around my pond last year.  I was interested to see how they sow the seeds at Harlow Carr, as I'd always tried using them fresh. (with mixed results!)

Oh really. They would look super in a pot. Where did you get them from?

We bought ours from the Keukenhof, while on a trip to Holland, but they should be available from good bulb catalogues.

We have tulips called Oscar.  Quite an attractive shade of red and not too tall.

There was a Beeb board member called Groundelder. 

Sorry, Gold1locks, that wasn't me.  Sotongeoff has worked out my old name.

who were you in the former life?-give us a clue

A plant with 'acid-green' flowers and an irritant sap!  Not a prolific poster though.

Yet another refuge from the BBC boards.  I've had to change my name though.  My BBC one was already taken on here.
