I can't really see the leaves but think it's Prunus lusitanicus, Portugal Laurel

When to prune Solanum dulcamara (Woody Nightshade)

Posted: 09/06/2016 at 22:10

Solanum crispum, often the cultivar 'Glasnevin', is a popular, vigorous scrambling plant.


Solanum dulcamara, woody nightshade or bittersweet, is a rather weedy thing for me, less so


for pansyface. But hers isn't as bushy and large-flowered as yours. 


S.dulcamara has a very strong smell, hard to describe but not very pleasant, in the leaves and


stems, noticeable as it passes through the shredder


I think you have S. crispum.

Your garden

That sounds like my sort of garden jonesk.


We have pipistrelles breeding in the roof and some tree bumblies up there as well. Noisy neighbours sometimes but we love them.


More tree bumblebees in a box (rescued along with their box)


Newts, 2 (or maybe 3) species, slow worms (rescued) and grass snakes. Few frogs and no toads which is bit sad. 


Lots of birds and insects, big on dragon flies and moths


Our strategy is not to work too hard and let it all happen while still keeping a garden rather than an impenetrable jungle.

A number of plants that need identifying.

Enchanters nightshade, Circaea lutetiana is a right b.......r to get rid of, It spreads around my garden and completely ignores me. Common names are a menace, this is in the same family as willowherb and evening primrose and completely unrelated to anything else called nightshade

What is it please?

Might be giant hogweed, can we see a bit more of it please?

Cerinthe major

It's time for them to be outside and in the ground. That should sort them out.Water them in and leave them alone for a while, no daily watering

Are you sure that's S. dulcamara? It looks more like S. crispum


Someone's pressed the bold type button on it

where are they? how big are they? too wet is more of a problem for cerinthes than too dry but they do need a bit of water
