It looks as though it's got a flower stalk. Can we see the top CraighB
Do pokers have those triangular leaves B-L?
Don't do it CraighB. There are loads of other plants with that shape that are well behaved
Dozens, no that's not true, hundreds of seedlings waiting for me to remove right now.
But it's dark
Suitable for my garden, not CraighB's
I have one about 2ft across at the base, much more at the top
And hard to dig out when it reaches full size
I saw one of those for sale this morning outside an aquatics shop. £4.99
a strimmer followed by a sweeping works wonders
Can we see a photo?
A good watering in should be enough to last 10 days at this time of year.
Were they bare root or in pots?
I might have another go if acid not essential
Very flat, yes, except for the piles of gravel and 'land-fill' mountains.
On the plus side, my garden has different levels from old diggings and dumpings.
Near Peterborough aym.
no idea re the white spirit, I have heard about smoking them and setting fire to them but never tried to germinate this one
