Thanks Dove. So will this happen every year? It's rather impressive and I would love to move it to a more exposed position.

How will it fair do you think?

Good afternoon,

Would somebody be so kind as to tell me if this is actually part of the palm tree? It looks like it's coming from the root of the tree but not sure. Would love to move it if possible.

 

Thanks

Jo

I've just googled your answer fidget and I think you're right. They are beautiful flowers but they are very unsteady. Their stems are so thin. I've no idea how they got there but I'm glad they did.

Thanks nutcutlet. No.2 doesn't have many flowers and there's no way it could have been planted because you can't get through the shrub that it's grown through.

Do you think I could take cutings from it? It looks very pretty and would like to put it somewhere else.

And what should I know about phytolacca?

Hi guys,

I seem to be invaded by swarms of ants this year. They are in my lawn, my plant pots and they've started to come into the house. Is anybody else having problems this year and what can I do?

My lawn is starting to look messy with piles of sand everywhere and is it a real problem in my pots or should I not worry?

Cheers

Jo

Hi guys,

I have some new plants that have just appeared in my garden from nowhere and would like to dive into your fountain of knowledge if you don't mind?

 

The yellow one comes on a very, very thin stem that has to be supported as it can't stand up otherwise. There is also a pink one beside it. Full sun in a border

The purple one has grown through a shrub, about 1.5m high. Half sun.

The white one has sprouted underneath a tree, half sun I would say.

Ok thanks guys. I have another option. I could possibly turn it into a veggie garden But do I have to get rid of all the sand?
