I've always been puzzled by those. To me Echium vulgare is Viper's Bugloss, a biennial, about 3 foot tall.

So how has a dwarf annual been created? If it's a hybrid what is the other plant?

Explanations please

is this a goodie or baddie?

Nature needs us to stop killing it. We're the ones that upset the balance, not the parasitic wasp. They're part of the balance. We were part of the balance in ancient times but not now

is this a blackcurrant?

is this a blackcurrant?

Sort of. It's Ribes odoratum or alpinum or aureum. One of the ones with yellow flowers

Can anyone name this plant?

Good idea KEF. I love swapping plants.

Mine were in a pretty poor piece of ground. Maybe that is where they do best. More food, more leaves

It will be hard work so make sure you like the look of it before you start

Never mind Tracey, you'll get flowers, just let them settle

I'd plant it now if I thought I could get the job done without breaking the flower stalks Stacey

Let's see a photo

It might be worth a try in the dormant season if you can get a big enough root ball. Large trees do get moved.
