weeds or flowers?

Posted: 03/05/2014 at 23:13

Hi Maggie, the trees to the left of the shed are field maples, grown from seed 21 years ago.

The ones to the right are birches, a couple of years younger but might be taller.

The shed will be 6' or so to the eaves so maybe 20' for the trees. Big enough to sit in the shade of for several years now

Geums, lots of them. 

Geum is a genus. A group of species. Some wild, some cultivated forms of wild ones, some hybrids, (a cross between 2 species)

There are other weigelas. There's one with very dark purplish leaves and plain green ones. Have you got one of those

If it looks as though it will hamper your rose you could pull it out or trim some off the back

I'm guessing from the look of it and the accompanying cornflowers that it's an annual. 

Dis you sow an annual mix at some time?
