I've just seen a gardener died last year from touching it without gloves.  My friend has children, should I recommend for her to get rid of it.  Not sure I'd want it and it isn't at the back of a border it is just at the end of the lawn.

I wondered if you could help ID this plant, someone has said it is Aconitum and is poisonous.

Is anyone able to confirm if this is the case or if not what it might be.

 Thank you

Campanula - what to do with it ?

thanks for the tip re dead heading, will get out there and check shortly.

planting in 3's is best, sometimes it just boils down to budget unfortunately.  I will just have to have patience and divide when it gets bigger. thank you for advice.

great thank you.  Ok being a biennual, then maybe if this lot  seedi might have more in 2 years, is that correct... a lot of effort for something that takes 2 years to grow... not sure my patience lasts that long

I have lovingly raised this plant from seed.  A freebie from a magazine, but I've forgotten the name of it ?  I'm thinking it is some variety of campanula but don't know which type.

Is anyone able to help ?  And also able to let me know what to do with it.  I assume its perennial as I don't think I would have planted something for it to flower the following year unless it was.

 Also it seems a bit leggy, will it fill out or should I have pinched it out to make it a bulkier plant ?

Any advice gratefully received.  Thank you.  I hope you've all been enjoying your gardens in this lovely weather.

I bought this white campanula this year.  Will it get bigger and bushier than this ? Will it just take time and get bigger each year.  Sorry I dont have much experience with campanula like this.

Any advice on how best to deal with this plant ? Thank you. 

30cm plant plugs - GW offer

Posted: 27/06/2015 at 16:54

I recieved my GW Offer 30cm Geranium plant plugs today.

Am I able to put them straight in the ground now or should I be putting them in a pot ? Bearing in mind holidays and I'm wondering whether they will be better off in ground in case I can't get anyone to water pots for me for two weeks.  I go away in a months time.

What do you all do with them ? Thank you as always.
