Don't like to rock the boat, that's a good one!  With your track record with this site I don't think that was a good move. 

Allens late night postings again, please, newbies, post where you think fit, makes no difference.

What is this tree/plant?

Posted: 11/06/2017 at 23:24

Where do they come from? They are always popping up in my garden and they are so deep rooted they're a hell of job to dig out. We haven't got any of those growing anywhere around!

that previous poster has given instructions  to grow them  as trees, you did well by chopping them back, you have the hedge you wanted.  They are looking fantastic now.

It's a house plant, Begonia Rex. My mum had a mania for propagating them by cutting up the leaves, then she couldn't throw any away.😀

Thanks Lyn. We moved here last summer and I can't remember if there was a geranium there. They did have a few, I'm just not sure if this was one of them

 Hope you kept it, mine's  just started to flower.

Hostas from seed

Those seeds you gave me Hosta, coming a long really well, bit small because I haven't had a chance to repot this year, but all germinated and grew on well. 

Cant remember the name, Frances something? 

What is this?!

Privet hedge by post

I bought mine online from J. parkers, 20 for £20.00, extremely good plants and grew very quicklY. They were bare roots though, which have to be planted in the winter, if you want to plant them now, you need pot grown ones. 

Online as good as anywhere. Lots of places will sell them. Don't buy them too tall, and when you plant them, cut a few inches off the tops, then pinch out as they grow, that way you will get a thick hedge right from the base.
