Look around and you'll probably find hawthorn seedlings in someone's garden

Castor oil plant, should I keep it or remove it

Posted: 07/08/2014 at 23:53

I'd keep it. I don't expect you were going to eat it were you? Or concoct something that can be injected into a problem neighbour?

Would members be interested?

Trev's never come back.

Do you think he was winding us up?

cancer has meant I can't manage my garden

For every person that can no longer manage their garden there'll be someone who would love a garden to manage. Matching them up is the problem.

If you don't want to tell it here, what about a new thread

Low growing wildlife lawn?

Yes to yarrow,  daisy, birdsfoot trefoil, clovers, 

if you get buttercups get the meadow ones, Ranunculus acris, not the creeping ones but they do need a bit of height before they flower.

I wonder if your bugle is self-heal, Prunella vulgaris, that flowers in my lawn between mowings. 

I'm not sure if thrift and scarlet pimpernel would compete but worth a try

Also green in my lawn but won't flower if mowed are yellow bedstraw, marjoram,  agrimony and cat's ear

Prostrate thymes and small mints also worth considering
