Poor Hedging growth

If this was down to septic tank run-off your ground would be saturated. Is that the case? If this is the case there is a problem that needs sorting out by the owners of the septic tank.

Normally it is as Curmudgeon says. Fluid level in my tank is at least 3 foot below ground and the soak-away is lower. Nowhere have I dug into the surrounding ground and met run -off from the tank.

Thanks David, I hope mine might start seeding soon. Not sure they're even going to flower this year though

All quiet here last night, on my side of the ear-plugs anyway

Brunnera macrophyla 'Jack Frost'.

Mine seed like mad but Jack Frost was only Jack Frost in the first plant. They become less like it with every generation and after about 20 years of seeding on they're just a bit variegated.

Much as you'd expect really but if you want a colony of Jack Frost, propagate as blairs suggests.

I prefer the species tbh, not that keen on a lot of variegation

I had some white ones years ago but I didn't like them, they had a rigid look to them and didn't flow with the rest of the plants

plant id please

I think it might be Valeriana officinalis, (valerian). Likes shady dampish places, Smells nice.

Not to be confused with Centranthus rubra, also known as valerian.

shade, or mostly shade, and not too dry for best effect

I like them, I think I might move them and see if they do better elsewhere
