Is this an Escallonia?

Posted: 24/07/2014 at 14:47

I think it's a fuchsia, maybe thymifolia or another similar species 

If you enlarge and look top right you can see a seed pod. 

Hard to tell in a photo but in reality fuchsia has a much softer look and feel than escallonia

If you don't like it dump it cotty. I've nurtured things I don't really like for daft reasons; they're rare,  a friend donated them,  I grew it from seed and it took  ages

I'm more ruthless now

Identify my plant please

Anyone addicted?

Posted: 24/07/2014 at 12:02

I don't think I'm addicted. Most of the time I've no idea what's going on

I like to look at pictures of plants and gardens and hear how people grow things.

I like to meet the members on trips and I like the seed and plant swap.

The rest is lost on me,  I live in my own private world. Never watchTV, maybe an occasional iplayer GW, and the rest of the world goes by. That'll do me

I think it's Artemisia absinthum, wormwood.

But if you think you grew it get a second opinion, there are many cultivated artemisias. It's a lovely specimen. I don't think it would be more of a seeding around problem than the cow parsley

Might be one of the artemesias. 

Can we have a look at a leaf

and is the a pungent smell to the leaves?

Tree roots under lawn, chemicals or brute force??

Are they dead roots or still alive and putting up suckers?

Cut them off so you're not left with a bit of dead stalk OL

Shredding is tedious WW, I agree. A bit essential here though or it would have to be massive bonfires and I don't like bonfires

I don't deadhead anything.
