Dracaena, here's a google pic of the shoots. You can see along the stem of yours where other leaves may come, or may have gone

We have that Rugosa growing on our banks, it shoot up everywhere, I don't mind it making a hedge but its pops up in the borders. We never planted it, it just arrived years ago, present from the birds I suppose. I love the big hips in the Autumn but I wouldn't have it as a stand alone plant.

It's Privet, if you cut the top it will shoot out from the bottom and along the bits you leave.

HELP! Out of control clematis

Posted: 22/06/2017 at 08:54

It could have the second crop of nesting birds, I'd wait a bit and have the whole lot out, it's very ugly close to the house. 

I have one that just there for the sole purpose of covering a fence to hide a shed, it was out control and I cut it right down to six inches, its nice now as the green has grown out from the trunk, thus hiding it a bit, not sure it will do that if you only cut it to a metre 

Strawberry Plant Runners vs Strawberry Stem vs Leaves

The runners are just long green stems, they'll grow about 60cmts long and get some leaves on the ends, these you pin down in a little pot of compost, they will grow roots and there's your new plants for next year.

I think that's a bit OTT, we have them growing out of a dry stone wall.! 

Is it too late?

I've never grown Lurchers and Pidgeons did you start them off in a seed tray๐Ÿ˜€
