Yet another plant ID question

Posted: Yesterday at 21:03

This has come up in my garden. I don't remember planting it and I've no idea of what it could be. Just want to know if it's something I can pull up or if it's worth leaving in. No flowers yet and no sign of any flowers.

Oh well. I'll just have to hope the good ones seed in the right place. I don't l them enough to bother moving them if they're not.

Thanks ladybird

See original post

 I have a lot of a varigated pulmonaria around my garden that self seeds and always comes up as varigated. You'd be more than welcome to have some of mine if you are ever in the Edenbridge, Kent area. I like it as it gives the bees something early in the spring

Plant ID please

They will reseed and multiply. It's a plants that once it grows in your garden you will never get rid of it, Saying that, it's a cracking perennial for ground cover and will be happy in most soils and aspect

See original post

 Yes I've dug up a couple of other plants that I presume had self seeded so they will get planted somewhere else I think. This one will have to come out at some point when I rebuild the raised flower bed in the back garden but I might be able to put it back once I've finished.

Plant ID please

Hi there. Your plant is Alchemilla mollis - often known as Lady's mantle.

See original post


many thanks for that Ladybird4...that's now jogged my memory. and nothing to do with mother's in law...perhaps I have a bit of a mother in law fixation!!!

Plant ID please

Had this growing in the garden ever since I moved in 10 odd years ago. I was told what it's name was but for the life of me I can't remember. I have it in the back of my mind that it was something to do with Mother's in Law...mind you it seems a lot of plants are named after mother's in law!!!

Is this one of our stinging nettle plants???

Thanks for all this...all ideas that I can have a look at once I get the bed rebuilt....I'm still undecided if I shall have a small wildlife pond as will have to think of plants that don't mind being near water as well

A good plant for the wildlife but spreads happily.  Easy to tell a stinging nettle....just touch it

But aren't there stinging stinging nettles and non-stinging stinging nettles???

What to plug a hole in the garden with???

Thanks for that Gardenning granny and Nanny Beach. My upstairs neighbours have a thornless rambler in there garden over the back door to the rear gardens so I may go for that. My plan is to put a narrow length of trellis  along the top of the window and hanging out so it give a bit of a canopy. I'm not too worried about lack of light coming through the window as I often have the blind down as the sun comes through that window in the afternoon and shines on my kitchen cabinets and mean's It's difficult to watch my TV.

Oh and Jo47 don't worry I'm only 44 and never heard any of Dick Barton, Paul Temple or Journey into Space when they were first broadcast but have discovered them  listening to R4X...and could listen to them over & over again

Thanks for that Ceres & Gardenning Granny...I pretty sure now it's going to all come out and I'll just have to find something that the butterflies will like

Journey Into Space was repeated on Radio 4 Extra a few months ago which was when I first came across it.  David Jacobs (whom my mother knew years and years ago) was playing Jet.

I think it's a great series Steve...of it's time of course but a lot better than the tosh we get on TV and radio these days. Just wish they would realease more of the Dick Barton stuff and the Paul Temple series
