the plants I mentioned would do OK then. herby type plants are good. Avoid double flowers, no use to insects. A lot of GCs are now labelling plants that are good for bees and you can buy annual mixes of seeds for bees.

Was the first weed one of many or just the one. If there's more of it on the bits you haven't done yet, a photo of it growing might help.

For sensible suggestions we'd need to know about the soil and aspect.

A buddleia surrounded by marjoram would be good. Lavender, 

But if you've got heavy clay and a shady spot, not so good.

Nut, how are your Angelica gigas growing? Mine grew green stemmed leaves last year, but the new shoots are coming up with red stems on. They should all flower this year( 4 plants).


I'm glad you asked that fidget. I removed 4 slugs and the beginnings of an ant's nest when I went to look. They're OK but small. Probably looking at next year for flowers. I still have the puzzle of different leaf colour. From 2 different sources I have some with dark green leaves and some with purple/red leaves

Help identify this plant with red buds

Posted: 17/03/2014 at 08:04

I wasn't so sure after I'd looked at the photo though Fairy, (I didn't manage the link first time round) the buds look a bit pointy and the old stems too stiff.

Hi Danae, welcome

If you click on the tree in the tool bar and follow the instructions you should be able to upload a photo.

My guess for your plant would be a paeony.

Where to start?

am I thinking about white or pink artjak? Might be important once the effects of the wine wear off
