Invasive roots from a neighbours garden

Posted: 11/10/2013 at 23:00

and when you've chopped away inject some root killer into the exposed ends

Can anyone identify this plant please?

that looks like one of those bromelliads, might have spelt that incorrectly. You need to get that out of the garden and protected for winter

Hey Brumbull, hello. You've been missed.

A trouble stirrer I think, and well practiced at the art. 

Not worth worrying about.

E. rugosum - in 2 wheel's link - is quite well behaved and very white. Doesn't look much like the one in the pic though. 


Hardy annuals

I've got loads of annuals and perennials germinating in the garden over the last couple of weeks. Some of them must be from last year's seeds or even came in when I spread my compost. I see them as a store for extra plants next year. They're much too close together to leave as they are.

I realise that a well run compost heap would have killed off the seeds. I have no illusions about my compost heap, the weeds etc break down and I use it. 

Winter Reading

Christopher LLoyd's earlier books are lovely reads. Not so keen on some of the later ones, the pictures are good but the edge has gone from the writing

Beth Chatto's Woodland Garden gets some re-reads, it goes well with my garden style.

I'm envious, no hedgehogs here for years.
