Anyone know what this weed is?

Posted: 25/08/2016 at 15:35

Its under a Spiraea  which I have just pruned.  But I think you may have found the answer - the next door garden has a Rhus/sumach tree right near my fence and I think the roots may have grown underneath - the leaf is certainly similar.  At least its not Japanese Knotweed!!


I get all sorts of things coming from under the fence as these neighbours moved in 3 years ago and have not touched this long bed next to my fence - however they keep their patio and bbq area immaculate!!

I don't thnk an oriental poppy has such long and strong layering woody roots - you can just see them in the bottom picture spreading out to the left.

Just found a really weird plant under a bush.  Its got really long stems and pale green ferny shaped leaves.  The roots are spreading wide and go really deep.  Is it a weed you know??


I will attempt to attach a photol

Fuschias and vine weevils

Posted: 25/08/2016 at 12:30

I use the vine weevil nematodes very successfully.  I get them from Green Gardener on Amazon as they send you a packet for warming weather in Spring and for over wintering in Autumn.  I do ALL my pots - you only need a little slurp in each pot but water before and keep watered for a while.  I have had hardly any vine weevil damage since using.

My beds have been invaded by these tiny fern like weeds.


They look big in the photo but there are  normally lots of these tiny things nestling among other plants and elsewhere.  I have never had this problem in previous years.

Can You Suggest a Front Garden Tree or Bush

Sounds lovely Patsy - will look into this for my own garden.

I have passed on all these ideas to my son and will update when the chosen specimen is planted.  Thanks again to all.

He has already planted a photinia hedge and was going to remove the grass, dig a central circle for a specimen bush and  cover the rest in pebbles  as its such a small area to lug the lawnmower round to.  He has a very big lawn at the back of the house.

Cotoneasters shown as hedge and he's already planted 3 photinea against the wall. The Ribes only grows to 1m.    Just looked at pictures of Mahonia though and I think one of those might fit the bill.  I have one in my garden and they grow quite quickly and you can prune them easily.

PS Don't think there's anything interesting to see through his window but he reckons its bored dog walkers tramping the streets.  The man in the bamboo looks as though he's seen something interesting though!!!

Thanks again everyone

Thank you Hostafan - will add to list but not the net curtains - he hates them with a passion!
