Unknown plant or weed?

Posted: 05/08/2014 at 10:55

The top one is an oxalis. Probably a cultivar of Oxalis tetraphylla

and houttuynia cordata 'Chameleon'

Ceanothus

I thought they didn't like being pruned but when I had some die back my neighbour suggested cutting it right back. So I did and it grew back. It was fine for a few years but now I've let it get swamped by bindweed so that's probably the end for it

What is it ?

The slugs can have it to themselves Bamboogie

I don't like the mozzies and there's a lot of them out there

The bindweed had gone up within the timber framed walls and into the roof in our last house

There's probably some outside as well, could you use the weedkiller there?

Don't cryptomeria have the leaves all around the stems, these look like a flat arrangement to me.

But you may well be right. I'll pass on going out with a torch to examine them

Rain is rarely enough water for plants in pots in summer.  It's probably thirsty

They're nice moths for people that are a bit wary. They sit on your finger and don't flap about.

10 foot maybe fidget. Not as advertised, I was expecting huge by now but it's probably not well suited by by soil. I bought the seed because it said 'easy from seed' in the catalogue. It was easy to germinate and grow on

Yes BB, all these moths have their habitat. But I wouldn't see much of them if I didn't set a moth trap every month through the summer.

Fairy, book says 'more thinly distributed in Scotland but extending its range' so you may see one soon
