Agapanthus versus Dandelion

Posted: 30/03/2014 at 19:10

If you use glyphosate and keep it off the agapanthus you'll be OK. Mine has Campanula trachelium in it. I shall have to do something similar though I may use a paintbrush and the gel version of glyphosate

What is this Plant?

Could be Phlomis russelliana. Try planting it out, I've never had one come to flower in a pot. They grow very quickly and run out of steam before they flower.

It must be possible to flower them in pots though, GCs must do it

Hi Jacqui, is it always wet or does it dry out in summer? and is it really wet like a bog?

If it's always damp, not a bog, you get more choice. Some of the ferns would go really well, some of those that need more moisture. Primroses, pulmonarias, astilbes and ligularia if it's not too dark.

It's one of the speedwells, Veronica hederifolia. I know it as bird's eye but all natives have a lot of names. It's an annual, flowers very early in the year
