Black insect on lemon verbena

I believe you Fiona, they're everywhere. I don't take much notice of them unless they get very extreme. They are part of nature and I like a natural garden, the birds pick them off for me and if it gets really unsightly I brush off or cut off

I don't think bamboo grows from cuttings, you need a bit of root with a shoot or potential shoot. Also interested to know the origin of the bamboo seed.

The upright green bits that follow on from the flowers darken to brown/yellow, open up and it you tip them up the seeds fall out. They are ripe. You can either sow them straight away and the germinate quickly or keep them til about mid-winter and sow them and leave them in a cold place, (outside or cold greenhouse) No heat required. Or just let them seed themselves around the garden

I don't recognize it from the photo. Can you post a few more? Does it flower at all? What sort of soil have you got and where are you?

Can you tell if it's spreadingby roots or seeding everywhere.

Is this the shrubby one, Phlomis fruticosa? I haven't got any flowers either. I'm blaming the severe haircut it got last summer and hoping for some late flowers.
