It's a conifer Edd.

It's not a pine or a yew. That exhausts my conifer knowledge

I think you must have acid soil to produce a rhodo hedge like that

It's definitely not evening primrose Hestor, they're are numerous and still at rosette stage at the foot of this one. Sorry the latest pics were no good but imagine the tight green, with a hint of purple, heads of broccoli before they open yellow. You could almost pick these thinking they were broccoli if it wasn't for the lower leaves. 

I haven't noticed the bees on this violet particularly Aliesh but maybe haven't looked at the right time.

3 is maturing, I took some more photos but too blurred to post.

The top now resembles purple sprouting broccoli and I think it will flower yellow. the stems are purple and I think it might be Woad, Isatis tinctoria. I have no record of sowing it but record keeping is a bit lax

A picture would help show the extent of the damage. Is it coming into leaf?

pond worries

Lots of interesting things in a pond. Even more if you put a drop under the microscope.

Opinions on 'red dead nettles'?

Posted: 13/04/2015 at 20:05

bees like red deadnettle. It's an annual so don't bother taking too many, just enough for a seed supply. There's usually some flowering for the New Year's Day flower count. It likes disturbed soil (your flower/veg beds). Grows more or less anywhere here.
