What plant is growing in my garden?

Posted: 13/05/2014 at 16:49

In addition to daisy's collection I can see a Lonicera nitida probably ' Baggeson's Gold', Euphorbia lathyris, a cornus coming in from the left and a bramble.

Weeding tomorrow please, the bramble and all that grass

It's going to be awkward to get the drill in as well is it? I'd get in as far as you can and be prepared to do it again if necessary. But once will seriously upset it

How close to the ground are you going to be able to cut it? The nearer you can get the stuff to the roots the better

Cut it off as low as you can and inject Rootout, or whatever stump killer you can get, into the remaining part. drill a hole down from the top and get it well in

Could we have more photos Linda.

The leaves and stems now and at any other time you have pics of.

Aralia elata suckers like rhus and flowers late in the season, much later than rhus. 

It alsocolours up. That photo of flowers with browning off leaves is much more aralia than rhus.

Rhus stems are furry and aralia are marked as yours

I fear it will rot starting from your side. But see what other people think.

Re the other part of your question, I don't know what type 1 rubble isbut I don't think you need all topsoil over that depth. I can't do sums very well but length x width x height gives you the cubic measurement and a lot of those big bags hold a cubic metre.

I don't think a pond liner will protect a wooden fence. Wood needs to breath, Having a pond liner against it won't stop it getting wet when it rains but will stop it drying afterwards.

I think Invicta is right. Aralia elata.
