Hi guys,

Can somebody tell me what is this plant that has grown in my garden?

Unfortunately, that's not an option, but i'd like to know if anybody else has tackled this problem.

Hi guys,

I have a Stephanandra incisa Crispa in my driveway that's spread like wildfire. I've cut it back to the root but the area (approx 25sqm) is completely full of the root system. 

I would like to get rid of the whole lot and replace it but digging by hand is a nightmare. Any suggestions?

Hello everyone,

I planted a few cornflower seedlings a month or so ago and now they've gone mad. Can I successfully move some of them to another spot if I dig up a clump of them?



Plant ID please

OK, so maybe I won't be moving it just yet then.

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?

Just realised the pics are not very big. Do you need bigger?

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.
