mystery plant

Posted: Yesterday at 17:16

I think it might be winter cress (Barbarea vulgaris) or at least something similar.

Plant ID - probably a weed or wildflower

Looks like a dog violet to me, I have loads of these in flower in the garden at the moment... looks brilliant.

Problem with Fatsia

Mine looks the same as well. They do look a little odd, but the largest leaf is starting to unfurl and looks green inside. I think it's as JAC51 says and it's just what they do

Here's my pond for you to take a gander at. It's only a year old, but has already got a bit of wildlife lurking in it. It's not looking it's best at the moment, because the plants haven't really started growing much yet. Hopefully this helps. Ask away if you have any questions.

Michael...I have two rosemarys in pots, which have been covered in flowers for months. I have them in very poor soil from the garden (very sandy), I must admit I haven't watered them at all so far this year. I tend to let them just get on with it. They really don't need much water at all.

We have one as a pond, I shall try to remember to take a photo of it for you tomorrow. We bought a metal plug for sink and then sealed it with aquarium sealant, which is fine for wildlife and has kept the water in!

Mine arrived safe and sound today whilst I was at work. Scabious, Coreopsis, Campanula and Geums and all looking nice a healthy.

OOh  that must mean mine are on the way, although I will be disappointed if there are no scabiosa because they are my favourites!

What do you think this is?

Posted: 16/04/2014 at 20:36

Yep definitely a Himilayan honeysuckle, I love them , don't worry it's not Japanese knotweed!

Lovely Belfast sinks Orchid lady! Could you tell me the name of your Saxifraga in your Alpine one? I have that one and I've lost the label and forgotten it's name

Brilliant bargain for under £50. When we moved in here we found one hidden in the corner of the garden so it was free! Bought a metal plug and some aquarium sealant and I made a wildlife pond! wish I'd found 3 though....
