new plant id please

Wondering about a wild plant called Pellitory of the Wall, daft name but looks a bit like it

More ids please!

The top one looks like Pentaglottis sempervirens, green alkanet. Deep roots, nice blue flowers, seeds around and resists being dug up

next Centranthus ruber, valerian

thje last is a geranium as Mackers said. At first glance I thought it was G lucidum, then realised it was wet, not a shiny plant. A dry photo might get closer to an ID.  How big is it?


ID please

I agree Iris foetidissima, a plant for a wild garden (mine) not a rockery. Self seeded I should think

There's the difference. I don't use a fridge, I use outside I sometimes bag them, pot as well,  if I think they'll get eaten

That's the advantage of sowing in pots rather than the bags aym. The plants know which way is up

I think it must have been there last year, those woody bits wouldn't be there otherwise.

Any other clues? are the stems round or square? any sign of flowering? are the leaves smooth or hairy? stems or leaves sticky?

Are there any sharper photos?

That's an ash. I'd disappear into an ash wood if I didn't keep weeding them out

what to do with overgrown area?

I'd cut some of the older stems right back. Then do the rest next year. That way you've still got a shrub for this year.

That's Mahonia aquifolium.
