A number of plants that need identifying.

Posted: 09/06/2016 at 22:34

could you do some more pics of that one including stems. Is it woody like a shrub or dying back to nothing in the winter?

I'd like to see what's under the leaves, how it grows out of the ground.

If it's a paeony it's not one I know but there is something paeony-like about it.

I can't really see the leaves but think it's Prunus lusitanicus, Portugal Laurel

When to prune Solanum dulcamara (Woody Nightshade)

Solanum crispum, often the cultivar 'Glasnevin', is a popular, vigorous scrambling plant.

Solanum dulcamara, woody nightshade or bittersweet, is a rather weedy thing for me, less so

for pansyface. But hers isn't as bushy and large-flowered as yours. 

S.dulcamara has a very strong smell, hard to describe but not very pleasant, in the leaves and

stems, noticeable as it passes through the shredder

I think you have S. crispum.

Your garden

That sounds like my sort of garden jonesk.

We have pipistrelles breeding in the roof and some tree bumblies up there as well. Noisy neighbours sometimes but we love them.

More tree bumblebees in a box (rescued along with their box)

Newts, 2 (or maybe 3) species, slow worms (rescued) and grass snakes. Few frogs and no toads which is bit sad. 

Lots of birds and insects, big on dragon flies and moths

Our strategy is not to work too hard and let it all happen while still keeping a garden rather than an impenetrable jungle.

Enchanters nightshade, Circaea lutetiana is a right b.......r to get rid of, It spreads around my garden and completely ignores me. Common names are a menace, this is in the same family as willowherb and evening primrose and completely unrelated to anything else called nightshade

What is it please?

Might be giant hogweed, can we see a bit more of it please?

the one after the willowherb looks like enchanter's nightshade.

It's time for them to be outside and in the ground. That should sort them out.Water them in and leave them alone for a while, no daily watering
