invasive plant in my new garden

Agree, definitely not Rosebay WH

It's so like WH to look at but I have atleast4, maybe 5 species and have never picked up a smell.

Copper Birch or Green Beech Hedging???

Beech is what you want for hedging, copper or green. Lovely choice.

Birch is not a hedging plant, lovely tree though


Sorbus garden?

Posted: 22/02/2016 at 09:31

Don't do it.

Sorbus doesn't make a hedge, even a wild and loose one. Allowed to grow up, then be cut back to open the view, will make an unattractively shaped lump. Have a few sorbus trees where they won't spoil the view and hedge with something more 'hedgy'.

Dracunculus not Ranunculus

Yes, it stinks but only to attract its fly pollinators. Then the stink goes but still purple.

Probably best not outside the kitchen window.

Hi Tetley, sorry for the delay. The purple thing is Dracunculus vulgaris, I liked the juxtaposition of the exotic and the wild dog daisies and Silene fimbriata

I think they'd put up with that Daryl. Good idea, mine have grown a lot and could be spread out more

I thought they were annuals or biennials but my last year's plants are looking good and I'm expecting flowers, so I'm leaving them. A lot of the plants grown as annuals are really perennials.
