Identification Problems

Hi Graham, I would describe the lychnis as a short-lived perennial. But the best flowers for me come from the younger plants that have self seeded.

The curry plants is a shrubby helichrysum which can be hard pruned in spring

Small white wildflower ID, please.

I've just had coffee on the lawn. Present are; white clover, dandelion, one of the knapweeds, agrimony, ragwort, black medick, self-heal, daisy, cat's ear, one of the speedwells, dog daisy, teasel, yellow bedstraw and mint. All waiting for their chance to flower and seed.

The clover, self-heal and a few daisies are flowering 5 days after a mow.

Lovely

I think they are spindly. They're a great colour in winter but they're not very  lovely the rest of the year

Plant suggestion please

Some of the thymes root as they go. You might find a rooted piece.

And sempervivums, house leeks (as opposed to house leaks)

I zapped them last night. 

Butterflies big time here now. and the dragonflies and damsels and hoverflies. I shall look at them instead of the sowthistles and bindweed

I wonder if that's why a lot of us don't use these poisons Maggie

Rust spores are everywhere and it's a bad year for them. I always cut any chives I use from the base,

The chances of killing chives are remote
