Well, I never knew that.
Just a coincidence that you chose that example to illustrate the point Steve?
Don't forget that if you put enough systemic weedkiller on enough suckers the tree will die
A photo would really be helpful.
That's a very long flowering season and I think May is too early for these to be flowering but It's all I can come up with without seeing it
I'm cream crackered and cooked right through
I've raked and carted the grass OH Allen scythed last week. Run the rough grass flymo over to shorten it a bit more and taken the ride on mower out in blazing sun to cut the lot. Will I deserve my glass of wine this evening
It reminds me that I should have some in the garden. It's a plant of childhood.
But I have more recently grown T. porrifolius which looks much the same til it flowers purple, common salsify
That's a fun looking plant
Do they really make nest boxes?
Try Tragopogon pratensis, which we used to call 'Jack go to bed at noon', it only flowers in the morning.
What I can see of the stems brings that to mind.
The swollen bits are where the potential new tree starts, shoots up, roots down. The plant id trying hard to establish but someone keeps coming round with weedkiller or a lawnmower and setting it back. Every time the top is removed the number of potential stems increases and so the swollen piece grows
Those are tree/shrub roots and my money would be on the cherry if they're sending up shoots.They're well known for it. Do the leaves look like those in Wanna be's first photo?
