another mystery climber!

Yes, Tamus communis. It's a relative of the yam!

Comfrey is often used for this. I believe there is a special strain sold for this purpose. Nettles are good as well.

Can anyone identify this plant

The mole thing doesn't work, sorry to say.

That reminds me very much of Pellitory of the Wall, a nettle relative. Strange place for it to grow though, it could well be something else entirely!

Sad and sorry looking

I very much doubt if the tree will recover, conifers don't reshoot when cut back or damaged. I think the houseplant is a schefflera, but not really my subject - someone else will be along in a minute!

Please help, what is this?!

Looks like Allium moly. Should smell a bit oniony!

Against all reason, I agree with Lyn. Many of mine are growing in grass and get mown down after the seeds have fallen. It doesn't seem to do them any harm at all.

What is this weed?

Cherry sucker? I've got lots, I just keep cutting, pulling or mowing. I can't use weedkiller as I don't want to damage the original trees.

Orchid

I've got one that I've had for 23 years. It has never been repotted, although I do feed it occasionally with orchid food. Some years it doesn't produce a flower spike, other years I might get 2 or 3. Amazing is right!
