any ideas??!!

Posted: 12/05/2013 at 18:05

I know it's got me stumped! can you see the picture? I should have pulled the toadflax out first!! hoped the speckled stem might help?! but I have no idea. my mum thought maybe a trillium but I don't think so, there is a few of them growing along the base of a wall.

any ideas??!!

Ground Elder

Posted: 28/04/2013 at 19:07

I agree digging will only make it worse, I had this problem in a garden last year & had to resort to spraying ( which is always a last resort) only a tiny bit has come back this year which I will spot spray.

I also wouldn't lay a lawn on membrane, I'd wait for ground elder to die first, 

does anyone know what it is??

hi guys,

          Thanks for all your replies! it's definatly not lungwort ( I have loads of that), & knapweed just doesn't look quite right, I think it is probably compfrey? it's growing in the veggie patch so it would make sense, I guess it'll be one of those wait & see what it is moments!! ( I quite like those!) I will let you know once the flowers come

Thanku for your reply nutcutlet, yes it is a perennial ( have got big fat roots!) but the leaves are slightly furry I thought comphrey's were smooth?

 

tool advice

Posted: 23/04/2013 at 21:19

I have brought some really good tools from lidl's believe it or not & I am a gradener by trade & I didn't think the loppers I got would last long but they out lived a pair of Fiskars loppers which cost me £30!!! & the lidl's ones were a fiver & still going!! I have brought quite a few tools from them & have been very impressed

hi,

I have started working in a garden which has lots of these plants in them, & I'm not sure what they are, I'm thinking they are some kind of echium? but not pininana's, which I have too!

If any one knows what they are I'd be very grateful.

There is lots of last years (dead) growth laying around them which is about just over a metre.

thanks in advance
