What is it -2

if yoyu don't like get rid of it. make room for something you like. I'm not keen on mixed seed. The quick and easy always germinate first and swamp later and possibly more interesting plants

the smell from stirring up my pond.

it's just ground water, not lined. years of growth melting down

Phew. Was worried about what you were referring to nut! 

The smaller pond we had was really clogged and sludgy TCM. It had been very neglected and you wouldn't even have known there was a pond there. We cleared it all and tidied up all the surroundings. It wasn't very deep either so we took a lot of the sludge out which made a huge difference, and there was plenty of wildlife in it. It's a lovely thing to have in the garden.


I might pong as well Fg with all the sweating I've done today.

It would be good to have a clearout of the ponds but it's they're quite big and I can't reach nearly to the middle. And I have to think about all the dragonfly larvae in there.

Summer Berried Plant Identification

one of the skimmias? they're not plants I grow or know well, just seen them in other gardens. 

Help identifying this plant please?

Midsummer Beauty is enormous given 15 years or so, but I think there would be flowers if it was a hebe. it takes a lot to stop a hebe flowering
