Thanks fidget - you have quite an array! Can't ask the person who gave it to me, gardening granny, because she was an old lady who passed away.

Thanks everyone. Can't wait to see how it behaves in June, nut!

I'm off to google Lychnis too now

I thought about Stachys, but throne I have already in the ground, is very silver compared to this one.

This was given to me as a tiny cutting last easter. It has been gradually building up leaves since then and hasn't yet flowered.

What is it?

Thank you

Hedgehogs?

 Dove


Thanks for the link to hedgehog street - it sounds brilliant - sadly, I don't think that all our neighbours down our street would be interested - several are dog owners and don't care for their gardens at all

Couldn't find a hedgehog rehoming place near me, but shall carry on looking!

It's 5 inches across, not a baobab tree! I'm sure leaving it will be fine

Lavande he's HUGE! And adorable I have hedgehog envy now....

Years ago, when I live in a council flat that had large, grassed communal garden outside the back doors, we could hear hedgehogs snuffling their way along the walls in the evening. It was such a funny sound!

Dove that is brilliant! A hedgehog gate  

Do the cats get through as well?

Maybe I can encourage my neighbour on the fenced side to open up a gap too...

But where would I get my hedgehog? Can hardly go and nick one off the Heath!

Yes, we have a low wall on one side, then fence the other two, but with no visible gaps anywhere at all. Never seen  hedgehog in here and was going to try introducing one, but the person on the heath whom I asked said they had to be able to go from garden to garden (ours is too small and it wouldn't do the hedgehog any good to be stuck in it). Sigh!
