Creeping Buttercup

I hate this plant, it's the most invasive weed that I have (worse than bindwind) have a lot of it in my garden including around my very small pond. I deal with it as often as I can. I agree with Dove- get rid of it

Talkback: Make the most of a greenhouse in autumn

Posted: 19/10/2012 at 19:57

It really does depend on the plants, it's unlikely that tender non hardy plants will make it through any sort of unheated greenhouse through the winter. When over wintering plants you also have to think about your location and what sorts of Winter you can expect

Oh yea, oh yea,oh yea, an amazing announcement

Cover side of shed

Posted: 16/10/2012 at 23:02

I was lucky enough to inherit a shed and then a really mature Clemantis Montana that has been growing all over it.. I would  go for  this plant to cover anything. It does grow like mad but is very attractive, beautiful flowers in early spring. it requires very little attention.

The only disadvantage is that it does go to stick  in the winter

Berry-eating birds will need more help this year

I have some ivy growing through a boundary fence, last year blackbirds loved feeding on it. I've left it alone this year and can see the berries developing. Thanks Dove  for the reminder- I will put out other food this Autumn and Winter also. I normally put out fat balls, general seed but i will give the cheap raisins a go as well

compost bin alive with slugs

I have a forgiving nature when it comes to wildlife but still I'm truly amazed at the numbers of them this year and the damage they do. I've been planting fairly mature,  plants, grown form seed, over the last few  weeks and the numbers that have disappeared overnight has been astonishing. Ok these plants are not your full tall plants but they have been been potted on a few times and have a really good root system and loads of healthy leaves

@christopher1,2,3 or Verdun, or however christopher is spelt. I really don't care what name you call yourself,it isn't earth shattering news. As other's have said this is a gardening forum.......so all this pedantic talk from you makes me want to switch off and ignore you as I'm starting to think you are just out to make a point and to somehow make this forum "all about you"

I would like to think this would be a shame as it's all about sharing experience/knowledge/thoughts about gardening........so Verdun it is then

Am I posting too much?

Have to say I think the same

red hot pokers

I don't know much about this plant. I bought one earlier this year, split it into 3 seperate plants, 1 had a go at flowering earlier this Summer, I just let it die down naturally and now all 3 of them have very green, large foilage. What I know about them, I would say they are pretty sturdy plants that come back year after year.
