Castor oil plant, should I keep it or remove it

Posted: 07/08/2014 at 23:53

I'd keep it. I don't expect you were going to eat it were you? Or concoct something that can be injected into a problem neighbour?

Would members be interested?

Trev's never come back.

cancer has meant I can't manage my garden

Low growing wildlife lawn?

Yes to yarrow,  daisy, birdsfoot trefoil, clovers, 

if you get buttercups get the meadow ones, Ranunculus acris, not the creeping ones but they do need a bit of height before they flower.

I wonder if your bugle is self-heal, Prunella vulgaris, that flowers in my lawn between mowings.

Also green in my lawn but won't flower if mowed are yellow bedstraw, marjoram,  agrimony and cat's ear

Prostrate thymes and small mints also worth considering
