Japanese Knotweed

the more I think about it the more unlikely it seems. It would be letting JK loose to colonise private and council compost heaps and land fill sites all over the country. As far as I know that hasn't happened

Closeness of two shrubs

if one is 5' and one is 4' wide that's a total of 9feet. Have you got 9 feet corner to corner?

If you're sure that it's JK Then I would contact the local WLO and discuss.

Over the last year I have seen a lot of harmless plants mis-identified as JK. How sure are you?

Lots of people will be releasing this stuff to tips and I'm surprised florists are supplying it.

Heron?  Otter? Water vole?  Duck?


Any of those Dove, though I've never seen an otter in the garden.

I think we need one of those IR cameras set up on the end of the shed pointed down the pond.

Cotoneaster Frigidis

C. frigidus is my least flowering/berrying cotoneaster every year.

I think 'Cornubia' is a hybrid or cultivar of this and never fails to perform.

Fortunately there are enough C. lacteus berries to supply the birds as well

I love working out these mysteries.

Something is regularly stirring up the mud all along one of our ponds. I think that must be happening at night.

D. grandiflora and anything crossed with that should be good for perennialness (is that a word?)

Which varieties for 2014

You're right Verdun. At least one bag should be wrapped and put under the tree in front of a good log fire  

Good choice NewBoy.

It was the over-night thing that made me think rodent rather than bird KEF. 

Mice are good climbers

Mice make little caches fruits, eaten and half eaten, but they're usually hidden away.
