I think you should discuss this with your supplier. That's not good enough. 

Identify my mystery plant!

I'd get it in the shade Cheryl. It's not a real acid soil only plant like a rhododendren but it doesn't do well on alkaline soils. Might be worth doing 50/50 ordinary compost and ericaceous to get it going well. Then unless you have very alkaline soil you could try it in the garden when you have a space.

If it's not in leaf it's probably dead K. Most are in flower. Was it OK last year? or is it new.

cow parsley and hogweed

Thanks Berghill. Hogweed is the greater problem as the leaves are so big and cover up more desirable meadow flowers. Perhaps I'll try an area with painted weed killer and one with cutting the top. They both retreat in parts that are mowed for a season or two but the howeed is still there, awaiting its chance.

That was only an example Ian. Lots of plants will do it.

cow parsley and hogweed

Posted: 28/05/2013 at 21:05

My meadow is being overcome by cow parsley and hog weed. My fault for letting them seed in the past, I know better now. If I attack them with the corner of a shovel and get the growing points out do you think that will do for them or will those long roots create more shoots. OH used this method on giant hogweed and it seems to have got rid of them but they weren't as established. He made a special tool like an inverted V with sharp edge and a long handle. He shoved it into the root and took the top off. I don't have that strength in my arms so it will be foot on shovel. But will it work?
