It's called Eva is it. That change went by me.

identity help please?

my best guess would be one of the spiraeas. Looks as though it needs a good prune, remove some of the older stems to base

One of the elders, a Sambucus nigra cultivar. Might be 'Black Lace' but doesn't look quite lacy enough

Galium odoratum

Sweet woodruff is Gallium odoratum, try it by that name. It's a perennial ground cover for shade, somewhat invasive. Nice if you've got the space.

Lady's bedstraw is Gallium verum, yellow and does best in sunny places.

Hedge bedstraw is Gallium album  (or mollugo) a scrambler in grassland or hedges.

What sort of soil/aspect have you got and where are you?

Nice Silver Y Jo 

I haven't seen many of those this year

Mystery plant time

What are the stems like, do you think it's a shrub (woody) or herbaceous perennial.

Has it grown to that height during this season and was it there last year.

does it smell of anything, leaves or flower

??????? (the missing question marks)

Desperate to know what berries I've picked...

Looks like laurel to me. Definitely not sloes. Are the leaves very thick and evergreen looking witha smell when crushed.

Don't eat them

Good idea, weather looks good for some garden work 

Pricking out seedlings

Posted: 30/09/2015 at 20:48

I do it very early, as soon as there's enough seedling to get hold of. That way they don't get leggy and fall over.

Nerines

Action at last. 9 inches tall and showing pink

I'll have to do some weeding then take a photo.

Odd thing is they're in leaf, usually bare legged at flowering time
