Coreopsis Zagreb, repotting required?

Posted: 24/03/2017 at 14:02

I'd give it a larger pot or split it up to make 2 pots. New growth always comes at the edge, the middle is already full. The new bits are the ones to keep if you can't keep it all

Arum italicum. Some call it a weed, seeds about a bit. Nice ground cover in winter/spring. Flowers like the native Lords and Ladies.

Identification with these evergreen plants?

Native species is  a polite term for weed.

Have a look at images of Carex pendula, aka Pendulous Sedge, and see if the flowers look like yours. It's a thug of a plant not suitable for polite company (I grow it but I have a large wild garden). Seeds like mad and gets everywhere, swamps everything, like your Fatsia. If the images match yours, dig it up.

I'd dig it up whatever it is, anything that's taken over to that extent is undesirable
