Some bulbs do that every year. They'll slow down when it gets cold

Are these hardy? I've never tried them because I thought they were not

The only really healthy looking ones I've seen are lurking under the GH shelving in a friend's nursery

Help identifying loathsome weed

I think that's green alkanet, Pentaglossis sempervirens, but it might be one of the comphreys. it doesn't make much difference really, both are hard to deal with. You can't get the whole root out, roots go down a very long way and break off when you dig.

I'd just keep mowing them off but I don't care for a pristine lawn. I'm sure someone will advise re herbicide

 Sycamore moth caterpillar, one of ours

Anyone done any gardening today?

Posted: 11/10/2015 at 18:44

I mowed most of the meadow, a small area needs the Allen scythe (tomorrow). Now, when the leaves fall, I can admire the carpets of yellow beneath the trees. This assuming they fall in calm weather rather than the howling gale that deposits them all in one of the ponds.

Dug up a poor buddleia with a view to widening a path. Realised why poor doer, roots hadn't broken out from the pot-bound specimen I planted years ago.


Is this really cruel?
