What is this plant?

They are lovely, I started with just one that had seeded itself and now they are everywhere. Isn't  nature just so generous.

Can anyone identify this plant

I just looked up some info on it and it must have survived here because of the mild winter. My allotment is on an exposed site in west Yorkshire. I read that it is used to deter moles because of the aroma from its roots and leaves. Apparently the whole plant is poisonous if eaten. Thanks for your help with identification.

Is this a wild or cultivated variety, I can't say that I have ever seen this one before?

Hi Nutcutlet, thank you, I had a feeling it was the euphorbia family but couldn't find a likeness of this in my books.

Garden tattoos? Or generally cool and interesting tattoos?

Hi Sweetpea, tattoos are a personal thing and so long as you love them that's all that matters. I am in my sixties and have only recently had some tattoos done, just because I wanted them and I love them.

Does anyone recognise this plant, it appeared on my allotment in a boggy, shady spot.

It is about 30cm tall. Thank you

Hi, I would say it is a member of the nightshade family too.

Has anyone got some recommendations for suitable plants that would help stabilise the soil too, thanks

Has anyone got buds on there apple tree yet

Buds are there ready to open when the weather and the soil warm up, West Yorkshire

Have you put your potatoes in yet?

Posted: 15/04/2013 at 19:24
Our tatties are not in yet, soil in Yorkshire is still cold about 6inches down, some parts the snow has just gone. Onion sets should be ok if you put them in now, we have ours in cell trays till the soil is a bit better. I think they should all be in by the end of the week though.
