I hope you're a better photographer than I.

I've been trying for bee photos all morning

what are they ?

Never be concerned, we don't really have anything dangerous. Might be tree bumblebees, warming up, they're gingerish

A photo would tell us

Anyone recognise this plant?

Cut it right back to start again, if you do that from time to time it won't take over the world. It won't die whatever you do to it. I know

Hello little weedy thing

Grass is a monocot, it puts up one spear like seed leaf. Sweet peas are dicots, they put up 2 seed leaves which sit opposite each other on the top of the initial stem, but when they come through they may both point upwards. I don't grow sweet peas so can't be more precise

You do get weeds in compost sometimes. A photo would help

Will my wisteria cause subsidence?

There are many ancient wisterias on house walls, I don't think they can be too much of a problem

Wild flower patch or weeds

Posted: 09/04/2016 at 10:28

My garden is a mishmash primrose, but yes, mainly perennial and a few annuals. I've never grown an annual wildflower mix, native or otherwise. I'm not keen on mixes, a few plants always germinate quickly and swamp the later germinators which may be more desirable

the red nettles are annuals and the bees love them. Creeping buttercup is a thug and will take over, Meadow Buttercup, Ranunculus acris, is more refined. Grasses are part of our native plants, the Brizas, quaking grasses are lovely but prolific seeders. 

I think most people growing annual mixes cultivate the ground, just like you would for any annual mix, and remove perennial weeds like dandelions and buttercups

Ground elder control

This question of Tagetes minuta and weed control has been asked before, though last time it was bindweed it was supposed to kill.

The consensus was that it's useless. I think if it worked we'd all know about it by now.
