Hi any ideas of what this plant is please?

Posted: 23/05/2017 at 22:06

I think it's Valeriana officinalis.

Elder stinks, have the stems and leaves got a strong pungent smell? If not, then not elder

What is this vigorous plant / weed?!

Posted: 23/05/2017 at 19:20

I'm interested to know how it's spread everywhere if it hasn't flowered. I think it flowered last year but the flowers are insignificant little white things and you missed them.

It's not Rue. It's a Galium. there are several. 

Borderline asked if it's sticky. Is it?

It's a cornus but I can't remember the species name. Often used in municipal plantings

Do you feed and weed? you won't get daisies if you do that. 

Easy enough to come by. I'm sure someone would let you extract a piece to start in your lawn

What month do gardens grow the most?

Posted: 21/05/2017 at 22:05

depends what you grow. 

I like a long, constantly changing,  scene rather than a bang. I want to see a garden from January to December. I plant to achieve that

Trying to learn about Roses - Suckers maybe!?

no, suckers can't come from above the graft.

Read Dove's link.

If a rose is grafted, the bit below the graft is one species, anything from that is a sucker. The bit above the graft is the cultivated rose you bought, anything from above that graft is your rose. Number of leaflets is irrelevant

suckers come from below the graft, often below soil level. Anything else is a bit of your rose
