Plant 2

It doesn't look like it to me Lottie, see what others think

Plagues of caterpillars each year on our geraniums

A plant change is probably a good idea. Growing a lot of the same thing for years can lead to a build up of pests

Eucalyptus gunnii

I think you need to make a decision soon. This is either a tree,(big). Or you cut it back to base to make young growth yearly. Trimming bits off won't result in a nicely shaped plant

Help my soils got nits

Nin, I can remember a lecture on lice, fleas etc during my nursing training, 50 nurses sitting scratching 

Irrelevant, but might come in handy at a pub quiz, nits are the eggs of lice, stuck to hair and unmoving, they don't cause the itching.

plant ID please

The appearance is more like an oreganum/marjoram of some sort but if it smells of mint it must be mint

What is this weed?

Charley, I had a few and now they're everywhere. The little corms are almost invisible are spread about when you're weeding or splitting plants. Each little bit is another plant. I'm not too bothered, if I was growing little spring flowering plants I would be but my plants can take a bit of competition

Herb ident please

One of the artemesias, possibly abronatum

The celandines disappear after flowering, even if they haven't flowered. You'll forget about them til next year and there they'll be again. But more so.

Mine are flowering, yours are babies, they'll flower next year

They're lovely, but there are too many. I like them in the grass but they don't stay there

Lawnmower grumbles...

Good idea, not worth the hassle

You'd only need 4 3'x2' paving slabs to cover that if you want somewhere to put your chair

whats this?

Just don't take any plants away with you without quarantine for at least a year
