3 is maturing, I took some more photos but too blurred to post.

The top now resembles purple sprouting broccoli and I think it will flower yellow. the stems are purple and I think it might be Woad, Isatis tinctoria. I have no record of sowing it but record keeping is a bit lax

A picture would help show the extent of the damage. Is it coming into leaf?

Lots of interesting things in a pond. Even more if you put a drop under the microscope.

Opinions on 'red dead nettles'?

Posted: 13/04/2015 at 20:05

bees like red deadnettle. It's an annual so don't bother taking too many, just enough for a seed supply. There's usually some flowering for the New Year's Day flower count. It likes disturbed soil (your flower/veg beds). Grows more or less anywhere here.

where have all these bees come?

Bush might be Euonymus japonicus.



Mock strawberry- stay or go?!

Whether something is a weed or a wildflower is all in the mind

Unknown lawn weed

They're often in acid soil but I have seen them in alkaline. Improving drainage might help. I don't think lawn weedkillers can tell woodrush from grass so wouldn't be effective.

I.D Tree please !

Yes, I think that's a Kilmarnock. Not dangerous to foundations but that's the only kind comment I can make.

Does anyone else find the flashing ad at the top gof the page annoying?

It's nice to be without the ads, I wouldn't be without adblocker.
