Can you cut those down, my daughter has a horrible tall leggy one? 

Is this a weed

Could it be a Toadflax? 

Nothing like the photo!!!

My garden is full of plants, originally from Parkers, could afford anthing else, I originally had those plugs,or ones similar,  I'm happy with a big root system like that, I just carefully unfurl the roots, they will unfold, them pot up for a month, plant out, and they will flower this year.  They are cheap and cheerful, depends on how far you want to go to tend them. Make sure if they are in a tea bag material that you remove it all.

In a month they will look altogether different, the roots will have filled the pot. I couldn't possible have bought single potted plants for here when I first moved In.

For the past couple of years I've been splitting them yet again and giving them away.

Sorry looking plant - ID & pruning?

I think it's a Gaura, they should be cut back after flowering, so I wonder if it's cut right back now, you would lose the flowers for this year. Maybe tidy it up and prune it in the Autumn after flowering.

Only just Joyce, he weighed in at 8.6kg. Much to fat for a cat!

Please do keep us up to date with their progress, I'm sure they'll pick up. You'll be pruning them back before you know it.😀

Other ends of the country Tom, worth asking though, thank you. Some at 3mts would be good, especially for hollyhocks and helenium.

The little plugs take a while to get going, we have had some cold nights, I think they will be fine but keep them in the shade, too tender for direct sun just yet.
