The stems look like philadelphus but agree need to see a leaf or two

digging up St John's wort

St John's Wort

Hypericums calycinum, androsaemum, perforatum, 'Hidcote' and any other Hypericum you can think of. I've seen them all called St John's Wort here.

The one I was brought up to call St John's Wort is H. perforatum. That's the one that's sold as medicine.

There are two plants there. The trailing one, white briony, Bryonia dioica and possibly an eder seedling peeping through. You can tell for sure with the elder by the smell.

Mice moved into my car some years ago and made a nest using the foam padding from the back seat. They destroyed far more than they used. The back seat was always folded, only two of us and room for compoat and building materials. The first I knew was when transporting food in the back en route to a party. 

I think chewing is what they do. Maybe we should offer them chewing gum

In nature bulbs stay in the soil

Plant identification please!

One of the daisies, probably oxeye daisy as it's (almost) flowering now

And possibly Rheum palmatum, not a plant I know well,

A good find

Anemone Bulbs and when to plant them

Bulbs and corms don't store, they dry out and die. Plant them

big plants or little

They create more of an instant impact in garden and on bank account but take a lot more effort to get established, lots of watering and staking, and in many cases are overtaken in the long term by smaller plants.

I have never bought big, lack the bank account for that, but have nursed the results in other gardens
