Hiptage lucida?  

Is this plant safe?

I've read just don't let them flower or seed. The leaves (what I bought them for) are ok I believe. I know what you mean about other plants. I have foxgloves, lilies, ivy etc.

Just bought some seeds for RICINUS COMMUNIS 'RED GIANT' which are now about 2-3" Tall. A friend of mine told me about Ricin from these plants and how deadly it is. I am now concerned I am growing something that's not safe!  I have cats also and, although they are not plant chewers, they do like a good mooch around the garden. Any advice/help appreciated. 

Plant ID please

Def Houttuynia. Watch out for that one, can be quite invasive but a nice plant nonetheless.

6 and 7 look like Houttuynia cordata. Leaves smell like orange peel if you rub them

no 5 looks like flox candytuft of similar

no 4 Stachas or Lamb's ears

last one looks like London Pride

Anyone able to identify this plant?

Celandine. It's EVERYWHERE in my wooded garden, cannot get rid of it.  Every tiny little bit of root you don't get out sprouts into a new plan. Really reall invasive. At least the beds look full but it can be a pain. Granma stop trying you grow it as I think you will regret it

Talkback: Growing gooseberries

Can you successfully grow gooseberries in a large pot? I had probably two handfulls off mine last year but wondered whether this would continue as it was still in a pot?
