Identity wanted

The second photo looks like a pot full of weeds to me! I can see a willowherb and the geranium is probably Geranium lucidum, Shining Cranesbill, a pesky weed in my garden.

Hanging a Horseshoe

In Rutland, land of the horseshoe, they are always oriented the way that nutcutlet says. You can always plant a rowan to keep witches and the devil away.

What is this please?

Looks like Philadelphus to me too. Mine is in full flower now and smells heavenly!

Giant poppies

Those pictures are of perennial oriental poppies, not annual opium poppies. Lovely, though!

osteospermum

Some Osteospermums are sold as bedding plants and are a bit tender - they are from South Africa. Others are garden perennials and seem to survive all but the harshest winters. I've got one (the ordinary purple kind) that has lived with me since 1980!

Chrissy, you beat me to it! I agree.

Why doesn't my philadelphus smell?

Posted: 26/06/2015 at 18:57

Can we see a photo? Perhaps it's not Philadephus!

Plant ID

Yes, Hypericum androsaemum or Tutsan. It has lovely colour-changing berries later on.

Mystery Plant - can you help?

Posted: 26/06/2015 at 18:52

Not Black Bryony, that has shiny leaves, but might be Black Bindweed, Fallopia convolvulus. It's hard to tell how big the leaves are from the photo.

What's your worst nemesis, your most dreaded weed or plant?

Ivy and creeping buttercup. Terrified of ground elder getting in!
