Is this one of our stinging nettle plants???

Posted: 23/08/2015 at 09:47

Has it got a very pungent smell when you handle it? It looks like hedge woundwort, Stachys sylvatica

It's not a stinging nettle

Is this St Johns Wort?

Hi Snoodle, Hypericum calycinum is invasive, the shrubs like Hidcote are fine.

H. androsaemum (Tutsan) seeds everywhere but isn't much trouble compared to H calycinum.

Hi Nicky, re 3. Yes, looking at images I think you're right, but it's not one I'm familiar with.


You'll have to be quick to beat the squirrels to the nuts

It depends what you want Kay. I rarely dead head anything. I have a forest of assorted alliums. Some of the cultivars are not as huge in later generations but I prefer them like that.  The speciee, especially christophii, seed like made and are just the same.

And as an extra, there are some pink ones (name escapes me for the moment) which have been seeding gently for years, looking much the same, this year there are 3 white ones
