I've reviewed plants I've never heard of Lesley

I.D. please?

I can't see this very well Mrs G.  It's either too small or I click to enlarge and get a massive blurred image. Not just your pic, all of them for several days now.

I don't know what it is but I don't think it's a weed

I can see my plant collection from here Jeannie. It's getting bigger. 

But I can't drive it to Somerset

My pond is a year old now but we haven't had many amphibious visitors :(

Keep an eye on the natural one and nick any taddies or spawn

There are lots of very interesting things in ponds. We got a microscope from Aldi, works with computer. Incredible sights through that.

Forsythia question.

Nothing to lose Rio, fetch a saw.

If it all goes horribly wrong they're cheaply replaceable

Importing frogspawn is the way a lot of people start. Not recommended for a pond with fancy expensive fish in case you import some organism you don't want. Excellent for a wildlife pond.


Look what I found under alkanet.

If you don't let wild garlic seed and don't dig them up and spread them round the garden it will only spread in a clump. It's no worse than grape hyacinths

Hi Rio, welcome on board

I don't cut stems back by a third. I cut about a third of the stems back to base and leave the rest. 

I have completely demolished one in the past. It had lost all shape and was a right mess, so, kill or cure, right back to about 6 inches for all stems. After that it flowered better than it had ever done before.

In your position I'd probably take cuttings then get the saw out
