Mystery Plant arrived in my garden

Posted: 28/10/2014 at 14:27

It's Black Nightshade (Solanum nigra). The berries are poisonous, like most of the potato family. Pull it out when young, it's quite tough when mature.

It's a mystery ....

Coriander looks a much better bet!

The two types of leaf remind me of Burnet Saxifrage, but the flowers are different. Fairly sure it's a member of the Apiaceae.

Tree id please

Definitely a sedge.

Also see my reply on your other thread - I agree with the above.

Strange, just noticed you have started two threads on the same topic!

Has to be Lord of the Rings - I never tire of it.

How do I fix climbing plant mesh to wooden fence?

Both of these plants are vigorous twining climbers that don't need much support - they just fling themselves over whatever is nearest. You could have tied them in to the wires as they grew to persuade them to grow in the right direction. I wouldn't bother with mesh, it just makes the plants much more difficult to prune.

I don't know where you live, but that particular honeysuckle is only borderline hardy in the UK. Clematis montana will always form a huge tangle of stems - I've just cut mine down to the ground as I am replacing the fence, but the fence was completely covered, and the plants were growing into the nearby trees, without any form of wires or mesh. I expect the clematis to regrow in a very short time!

Some willows are planted for their coloured stems and are cut down every year in late winter.
