So what plant / weed is this?

Butterbur is Petasites hybridus and winter heliotrope is P. fragrans.

I don't think I know either well enough to tell them apaprt

Probably a friend of one of mine.  'paeony outside loo'

I don't know why lads love either Bilje. There's nothing romantic or erotic about that smell.


Osmanthus layering

Hi gang

My Osmanthus ?burkwoodii is going downhill, literally. It was at the top of a slope and has been sliding down for some time. This last winter more erosion  occurred and the shrub is now almost horizontal along the slope. Can I pin this down as a layering? The stem I would like to use is between 3/4" and 1" thick. My fear is of rotting, I know not everything likes that sort of treatment

Same as my bits of paper.

I think that's Artemesia abronatum, lad's love and many other names

If not, its Artemesia something else, there are several shrubby ones

Not an expert either but I'd agree with you there chicky.

We were promised rain yesterday. I watered in the new plants but left the shreddings mulch til after the rain. So do I hope to get rain in the next couple of days or mulch now before it gets any dryer
