Plant ID please

Yes, agree it's bittercress.  Def a weed but quite easy to pull up. They do have a cute white flower but agree  with Marygold, 'pull em up'!  Quite often get these 'free' when buying plants from garden centres!!

Spider mite spider mite does the things a spider might

has anyone used that "get it green" or something for spraying dead conifer patches due to the dreaded spider mite?  Just makes them look green apparently even if the patch is dead. Someone mentioned "conifer drench" also to get rid of the bllighters. Anyone used that?  Never seen it on sale anywhere. We have cats and LOTS of wildlife, hedgehogs, pond fish, newts, frogs etc so don't want to use pesticides if possible. But also want to try and do something for the poor conifers. 

I'd please

does anyone recognise this plant please?  I think probably a geranium but not sure. Tubers for roots small leaf about 2cm. Formed couple of small clumps which I've potted out separately until I know what it is!


Plant ID, what is it, please?

Definitely a geranium.   Large leaf so possibly the blue/purple variety 'johnsons blue'. I absolutely love these and so do the bees. They are nearly UV when they flower and form largish clumps. Very easy to divide too as your neighbour has done - I have them all over my garden. They love a shady spot but do just as well in my front garden which is sunnier and drier. ????

Thought you might like to see our hedgehog feeding station made from some old decking planks and polycarb roof sheet.  Keeps the food dry when it's raining.  We have 5 hoggies adopted from a local rescue.  Plenty of food going missing so they're definitely on the prowl )

Hi. Quite a few sellers on eBay offering seeds. Not seen this plant before. How lovely, might get some myself!

Monster mushroom. Nearly 14cm across!  Been getting quite a few of these recently, not seen them in previous years. Must be all the wet weather?  Any mushroom experts out there?
