Lemon balm and bachelors button advice please

Posted: 16/05/2015 at 09:29

Thanks Hostafan1,  but is it better to cut them back before splitting?  My garden is overwhelmed by ground elder, so I'm not worried about invasive weeds!

Plant identification please!

The pots are frost damaged, I was going to use them as drainage but never got round to tipping them out!

Amazing!  I've just looked up the Rheum palmatum on the internet - so chuffed!

I got 2 pots from the local recycling centre, and because I was slack I didn't empty out the soil!  They are now seriously growing and look lovely, especially the big leafed one, can anyone tell me what they are?

I'm trying to grow anything that will tolerate my infestation of ground elder!  But due to the recent rain, both of the above plant have gone nutty bonkers, the lemon balm is 3ft tall!  Can I just divide them as they are or is it better to cut them back and then split? Sorry if it's a stupid question...

Not at all!  I don't really do forums but I've been looking at this one for ages and the advice is great!  My garden may look good from a distance, but up close it's pretty bad,  I've just spent 5 hrs digging up ground elder today....

I'm going to post some more pics later as my garden is a nightmare. The pic above shows the main lawn, but I've got the same again in a L shape, but with a  major incline and a SERIOUS ground elder problem.  Really struggling to keep it up together and work full time!  I've grown wild flowers from seed before, but the crouch grass kills them...  I'll go for scarify as it's soo less painful!  Thanks for the advice!

I want to take up my lawn and turn it into a meadow,  any advice is really welcome! Sorry the pic is really misleading, I'm a newbie to the forum and the aspect ratio is wrong... pic taken from the terrace which is 10 ft high.  The lawn is about 80ft long x 20ft, to the greenhouse on the right and another 40 ft to the veg beds at the bottom.  I've been looking at bulk buying wildflower seed but it's a bit scary!
