Platn ID - mysterious climber, springing up all over the garden (photos)

Posted: 02/06/2014 at 18:20

  I meant that I was worried and had my worries confirmed. 

 

So after I spray the plant and the leaves die back, I still have to dig out all of the roots?  I can't even begin to imagine how I'm going to do that.  We've just had a truck load of new plants planted (brand new garden) and I'm so worried about disturbing the roots again so soon, digging around our plants to get to the bindweed roots.

It is something problematic!

Great, will do.  I was a little worried it would turn out to be something problematic.  Glad I checked in here before trying to dig it up!  Thanks again, much appreciated.

Thank you!  Will the glyphosate damage any other plants growing nearby?  The bindweed is twining itself around other plants.

 This is springing up at various points along our fences.  The neighbours on one side have completely paved their garden, and I can see no sign of the plant growing on their side of our shared fence.  I don't know the neighbours on the other side very well, and don't feel comfortable asking if I can examine their garden!  So I don't know if it's growing there, but certainly can't see any sign of it growing along the top of the fence.

Does anyone recognise it please? 

EDIT:  Sorry about the typo in the thread title! 

Watering can that won't drown seedlings and plants

My Haws extra fine Fine as Rain rose arrived today.  It's perfect!  It's such a contrast to the rose I used before.  Thank you so much for telling me that replacement roses were available!  So far there's been no dripping, so fingers crossed.

Okay, I found a replacement rose (extra fine) but have read reviews on Amazon which say that the plate isn't sealed so the water drips from around the edge of the plate which results in flooding seedlings.  The rose is by Haws, the Amazon reviews are here:

What now?!  Is this a common problem with roses?

If you mean the bulb-type attachment (standard fitting on most cans) there's a rose on there already.  I'll see if I can find a replacement that looks finer.

Hi all

I've been using a watering can and have found that the water seems to gush out.  It can result in too much water flooding into containers.  I understand that of course the water pressure when the can is tipped will force the water out but I can't help hoping that some watering cans will give a finer spray.  Does anyone have any ideas?  I've heard of Haws cans (and have seen the prices!), I know they have a good reputation.  Do they have a finer spray than average?  Can you recommend any other cans please?

Okay, I think I'll stick to the inserted pot.  Thank you all very much for your help.  Hope you have a lovely day.  Don't eat your chocolate too quickly...

Thank you!  I checked these and it looks most like the Dog Violet.  The flowers are so pretty.
