Can someone help me identify this shrub please? Is it a euonymus?

Hi - does anyone recognise this climber please?

Thank you - you're right!

Thank you! I think you're right it's honesty. From the photo it does look a bit like a courgette but yes, it's too cold still.
I actually like honesty (I know some people think it's a weed). But it's not my garden so I'll have to ask!

Can anyone tell me if this is a friend or foe - or should I wait until it's a bit bigger? Thank you!

Thank you - and sorry, I didn't realise it would be such a tricky one! It was in a woodland in northern Germany - very pretty. Looking at the photo link I don't think it's the solidago virgaurea var. leiocarpa though.

Thank you - here's another photo which I hope shows the leaves more clearly. Does this help?

Can anyone identify this wildflower for me please, found on holiday in Germany. Thank you!

I'm planting some shrubs on a steep bank, where there is currently nothing growing, except a few weeds. I want to use a landscaping fabric while the shrubs establish, to stop the soil washing away and keep down the weeds. I'd like to use hessian, as it would look better, but I've never used it before. Has anyone had any experience of using hessian? Did it work? Did it last long enough?

Thank you - one good experience from flowerlover2 and mostly bad! I think I'll probably use Binny Plants and Burncoose - even though it means extra postage. I've used them before and both were very good. Thanks again!

I've been looking for a number of shrubs to buy for the autumn - I can't get them locally anywhere, and none of the online nurseries I've used before have got the whole range (so I'd have to pay several delivery charges). Thomson and Morgan have got all of them, but I've never used them before. Has anyone used them? Are their plants good quality and of a good size? Thank you!

Thank you very much - it does seem very pretty, but I'll watch out if it starts taking over!

Thanks - I like the idea of sowing some seeds to watch out for next year. As for cuttings, yes, but I wanted to do this with the kids - maybe something easy like pelargoniums? I need to avoid anything that will involve me spending a lot of time nurturing things, as I just don't have the time.
Thank you for the RHS link - I'll certainly look at this, and, as I'm a member, I guess I can phone them for advice too.
Has anyone any experience of gardening clubs and what worked / didn't work?

Thanks Iamweedy - yes, I'd certainly thought about contacting local groups and parents, and also the local gardening centre to see what I can scrounge. However, I'm worried by getting flooded by well meaning but inappropriate plants, so I think I need to have some ideas and plans first, and then be specific about what I ask for.
