Plant / Flower Identification

Some of them are worse than others for mildew. I've got a very pretty pink called Dora something, lovely but she'll probaly have to go. Spoilt by mildew most of the time.

Noticed that several people have mentioned tidying up garden for visitors.........

I think it would be a good idea to .......

1..........only invite visitors who are keen gardeners

2.........are willing to help out with a few small gardening tasks out with one big gardening project

4.........cut the grass    


Good idea gilly. Years ago, when we first moved here, we'd invite our sons and their mates to 'garden parties'. We provided the food and the booze and they provided the muscle.

Remove Crocosmia

That isn't a problem jmeds. Once it's dry it doesn't affect anything. Choose a good warm day, and it will be dry very quickly.

What did you do in your garden today?

Remove Crocosmia

As chemicals and poisons go Glyphosate is one of the safer ones. It doesn't kill animals. None of the animals you mention will be eating crocosmia anyway. Glyphosate doesn't affect the soil

Any idea what these plants are?

1 is centaurea montana,

2 could be an aquilegia but there's no sign of a flower yet and I'm thinking maybe Thalictrum aquilegifolium. But that floppiness of the flower stalks isn't something I associate with either plant

3 Isn't an aquilegia but it's ID escapes me right now. I'll think about it f no-one else can do it

I got a lot more plants out of pots and into the garden. Another couple of days like that and I'd just have the babies to look after in the pots.
