But I can't ID the yellow thing Stacey

Can I plant near a septic tank?

I think the e. coli thing is from contaminated water on the actual plant, it's always leafy plants that the reports are about, salads and things eaten raw. the contents of the septic tank don't get spread around in theory, In practice  I know a lot of people that use the contents on the garden. It's your own sh.......... and hopefully you haven't got e coli.

we've been septic tank drained for over 20 years and the only problem has been getting the soakaway to soak away on our rather stodgy soil. I think we're the only house around that hasn't got a ditch to drain it into (illegal but done)

No problem Charlie but I wouldn't plant anything very big very close or you may find other problems. Having said that, there are large willows not far from mine, both been there 60 years + and no trouble. A couple of cherry trees on the other side, fruiting fine and nice cherries if we beat the birds to them. No taste of detergent

It's capable of getting to the top of a large tree Zoe. You see them smothering everything in sight. Most noticeable in autumn/early winter when the beards are displayed. Miles of it along roadsides, way up in the trees.

No waterbutts, never got a mulberry. All my tree-size spaces are spoken for now and  not really room for all of those that are here. 

And there's the passing years thing as well. Don't think I need to cut down to just annuals yet though

How lovely to see that Dove. Worth waking up for

I think we have a problem..

I'd do a bit of ivy removal and obvious weeds but it sounds as though the previous owner put some thought into the garden. Wait and see what you've got.

A garden can get away, a year concentrating on something else and it's gone.

You don't 'have to' anything Jonboy. Your garden, your choice
