gallery of shame

Posted: 27/05/2016 at 18:57

I have a shame. Apart from the sea of nettles (the butterflies can't need that many) and the goosegrass.


This poor little suckering tree/bush paeony. I thought I thought I'd lost it, overlaid by an enormous Viburnum rhytidophyllum, but no, under some of the nettles, goosegrass, green alkanet and hogweed, it struggles on.


I've promised it a move in the autumn, hope it's not too late.



I see in the pic it also had Trachystemon orientalis to contend with

Aquilegias would lose their charm if upward facing. 

Identify this please

Unknown tree in the garden. Help!

If the tree wasn't bought and planted as a cultivar or a different species of sorbus It's 99% chance they will be red.

why only one bud on tree peony this year

I had a sort of no entry road sign.


That looks like an herbaceous paeony. 


I think sometimes plants are coddled to produced flowers for sale, then when they get into the real world they take time to settle down. Expect more next year.

Thank you again nutcutlet, looks like a positive ID. How do you become so wise!!?

Furry leaf plant id please

not purple toadflax


I think what you've got there is the annual sold as Echium vulgare 'Blue Bedder', rather that the native biennial which is also called Echium vulgare but looks quite different
