I've googled iris foedtidissima and you're right it does look like it. Didn't get the seed heads over winter though. Thanks cambridgerose and nut cutlet. Also vinca minor, not sure whether I can wait till it flowers it really has almost completely taken over one border. And looks really hard to get rid of.

I've got another one if anyone is interested. I spent the weekend digging up a big stand of cuckoo pint which was hard work. But nothing compared to this weed that's threatening to take over not only my garden but I reckon the planet too given half a chance. It sends out long runners and the soil is compact with it to 2 or 3 inch depth. Smothered everything so will jest have to clear the entire bed.

Doh! So Monbretia is Crocosmia. I don't think its that as I've got heaps of that coming up. This one was like that all winter

Thanks. I didn't even know that if you tapped on the Photos they loaded as a separate tab. And yes I use an iPad. Bit of a Luddite when it comes to the tinternet.

I've got a thing for agapanthus so I'm pretty sure it's not that. Could be a lily, i think it's grown from bulbs as I did pull up a bit. I'll have to google montbrecia. Never heard of it.

Hi all.  I've inherited my mum's old garden and although I've had to get rid of an awful lot there are still some beauties that I don't want to get rid of yet! Take for instance this strappy thing that so does not belong in the existing rockery. I'm waiting for it to flower before moving it but would be interested if any one knows. All the other alpines are new.


PS Does anyone know how to get the photo to rotate before saving?

Beautiful photo Wintersong, all those lovely greens work beautifully together.  I've snapped a few in the last couple of days. Only takes me 3 minutes to walk round my garden as it's so small but I'm really pleased so far.

 Can you guess my colour scheme ?

don't quite understand why the photos upload like they o. How can you then turn them?  Anyone know ?

Another problem, this time with a Euphorbia.  It's just got too big and bullying a couple of my smaller plants.  If I cut it all back to about 6inches will it die or just keep going?

 Sorry but the photo is upside down!
