You won't do it any harm. If you cut it right back you'll get new leaves (but no seeds)

To dig over or not

I just looked at the met office radar images Fishy. I think our chances of rain are fairly small but there are some heavy ones in the south at the moment. Maybe they'll come our way

There aren't many places in this garden that could be dug right now and I have the same problem as you. A long queue of plants awaiting a home

Geum Lady Stratheden

Is it?. What's the red one called?

But the yellow bit looks really insignificant for a cultivar. 

Maybe the red one is a new cultivar

Is this wild garlic???/

If you sowed this year your wild garlic will still be very small, like a little blade of grass. Not like fat hen which is an annual and has to get on with flowering and seeding.

You might find some ramsons round the fat hen

what next

Nikki, when the pods are ripe tip the seeds out. But you need do nothing, they will seed themselves

Geum Lady Stratheden

Posted: 03/07/2015 at 22:27

Lady Stratheden is a cultivar derived from a wild geum. The wild one probably looked more like your yellow one. I wouldn't let the yellow bit seed or it will come even more like the wild one and be called a weed.

Have you checked it's all on one plant?, not two roots in there?

There are the perennial ones called oriental poppies, you can cut those back, leaves as well and more leaves will grow.

and the opium poppies, the annuals with light green leaves

and the ones that are deived from field poppies in varoious colours, also annual.

the last two can be left to seed or pulled up

what next
