You'll have to get up early to beat the squirrels
I'd try a different strategy.
Study the 'pests' and discover how interesting they all are
It works for me
Ignore the name 'Rose of Sharon' it means nothing. It gets applied to any hypericum.
Look at the proper name of any shrub you want to ID.
Good idea Simon. They'll have to work out who nicked them and threw them in the pond
It's not H. calycinum (Rose of Sharon) if it's a large shrub Gertie. That's a low growing one that spreads about and never looks very attractive to me.
Native wildlife, which most of my garden is designed to support.
does anything that grows in Glasgow produce seeds like that?
Does anything produce seeds like that at this time of year?
Not naturally occurring would be my guess
More or less Paul, I'm sure some of mine are 2nd or 3rd generation now
I like those smaller flowered ones, the large flowered ones look out of place here
Nice one Panda
