Another weed?

Posted: 14/04/2014 at 13:46

Noooooo don't weed it out.

You're right, it's a paeony

What a good find

Plant detective needed!

Hi DD

I'd say so. The only other possibility is Thalictrum aquilegifolium but my money's on the aquilegia.

Cutting Back Penstemons

Yes, AbiM, they need cutting back to perform well. Now. Down to a good set of growing shoots. But read this whole thread, they do go downhill eventually and cuttings are a good plant

Japanese knotweed shoots & Mower contamination ?

I have no first hand experience of JKW but I've heard that every little bit grows. But that may be just the roots, what you're mowing will be leaves. You say you think you've been mowing it. If you're not sure post a pic here to ID it. If it's in the lawn there'll be some growing away elsewhere for a photo

Pebble boarder despair.

I agree, leave those pebbles where they are. 

Raised beds could be an answer if you're still boggy now the winter's over, but not there up against the fence

That grows quite nicely in shade.  it will seed itself nicely, I let them grow for a few years and discard the older ones when they cease to look good.

Buld flower seeds

I'm here,

You need to wait til it's totally ready to fly. Then grab it. You could put a paper bag over the head to catch it (not polythene) Sow some straight away, it might germinate very quickly when fresh. or dry and save and sow outside in autumn and it will germinate in spring. Some gritty compost in pots and cover with grit. Don't sow too early in autumn or it may still germinate quickly then you have babies to see through the winter.

It will be a year or two before you get flowers. They're corms. Corms and bulbs always take a few years to get to flowering size.

I should say that this is extrapolating from other anemones, I've never grown de caen

Can anyone identify this tree?

You can try but they're usually grafted.

Nice single flowers, you should get some cherries (edible or not) let some ripen and you can grow from seed
