My neighbour tells me there's a Reliant Robin buried in my garden. He put it there so he should know.  We've found no trace of that. Plenty of carpets, lumps of tarmac, toys, bikes and, of course, asbestos. Some pluses, huge lumps of flat concrete to build steps and old hand-made bricks, they'd never be dumped now.


Id please

It's one of the arums, probably Arum. italicum. Lovely winter ground cover in shade, Great red (poisonous) berries follow spathe flowers, leaves die off after flowering and reappear for the following winter.

 Spreads by seeding with the aid of small rodents, crops up all over the garden

Cover all the root but not the stem is the best I can do.

I know about digging in rubble. Here it's a brick rubble

I like them. I think I'd like some more. 

Grass seed not growing - what should I do?

I should think it will germinate when the temperature rises

Thanks all. Ice Follies was quite a popular one, maybe still is. I doubt if it's anything unusual. I'll have a look at the 2 you mention fidget.

Well, not many pics of Sparnon and I don't think it's Irish Minstrel, that seems to have a 'sharper' appearance if that makes sense.Spring Dawn the same.  May well be Ice Follies. So many, so similar

These narcissi were in a dried out bowl in the house when we moved here in the summer of 1992. I thought they'd had it but they grew and flowered and multiplied.

I have no idea of the variety, can anyone name them?


Spiky weeds??

I've been bitten by a euphorbia, not much fun. (Not this one, E. myrsinites, a fine spry on a hot day when I cut the stems off.)

I still pull them up bare handed though
