Winter it is a marginal plant and grows huge by water. My border is shady and damp/ wet but I need to water it to stop it flopping down. Not the best place or garden for it but I wanted one. 

Rather than Gunnera I'd go with Banana in your garden. I had a hardy one some years ago in a pot and it died overwinter in the GH. I even lost an 8 yr old tree fern  Bananas do look tatty when the wind has been at them! Pleeze let me what you decide to go with

stags horn problem

Hi Diamond you have stags horns ..Sumach. I had one in my garden and it was lovely but threw suckers up all over feet away in the end we had to dig it out. I would not worry about one looking ill, soz but I'd be worried how much the other three will spread.

The blue poppy is a Meconopsis Himalayan blue poppy MrsG & Pdoc have posted pictures and Fidget grows them. 

Winter the prickly thing is a some places it can grow huge but if I water it well it produces huge leaves here but not gigantic I'll see if I have photo from previous years.

Rain & strong winds here  Gpigs in their hutch can't risk a cold on my last shift 

Welcome home Runny 

Lizzie & Liri? (attention span of a gnat here) enjoy NY and jollies. 

Get well soon Pdoc, Wonky, Panda and all who are broken  soz if I've missed anyone. 

Pdoc I recommend Sudacrem for terrible complaints and H cortisone for anything fatal and a few glasses of Stella it seems to work at this house 

Dove you encountered another plant that jumped 

Have a lovely evening all and keep your germs to yourself
