A couple of plants to identify

Posted: 26/05/2015 at 20:53

The first one is definitely not Centaurea, but could be Hoary Willowherb. Wait and see if it has pink flowers, and pull it out before it seeds if it does.

What is this?

Looks gorgeous, red campion is a lovely plant and deserves a place in any garden, IMO.

What is this.

It's a very big tree, but you can cut it right down every year to keep it smaller, I believe.

If you look in a coniferous forest, absolutely nothing grows under the trees. You are lucky that you've got a few things growing there already! Perhaps some ferns?

A mower with a battery would get rid of the trailing cable problem. Mine is made by Bosch and is very good.

Life's too short for all this!

You could propagate it by layering (pegging down a stem) then move the young rooted plant next year, or have a go at cuttings. I'm not sure the old plant would move very well, I've never tried.

Good idea Nut, I've been wondering what to do with the one I bought last year. I'm not short of rabbits though!

Plant ID for a friend

Arum maculatum.

Can somebody identify this one?

Posted: 13/05/2015 at 20:41

Salsify is a vegetable, it used to be grown in cottage gardens from where it escaped into the wild. It's got a long root a bit like a parsnip, and it's supposed to taste of oysters (never tried it though!).
