Just looked up Acorus, that's just the fella i'm looking for really like that just what type to get, why do all plants have so many variations is it just to confuse us so we cant make up our mind which is best.. cheers again FG your more of an angel than a fairy if you ask me

Thanks, Hogweed FG & SP93 been most helpful, Sweetpea when it comes to me and plants nothing is to obvious as i haven't got the foggiest what some of the most common plants are, if i didn't buy or plant it then it's a mystery to me, can you believe i went to collage and did horticulture & agriculture, though in my defence it was over thirty years ago, and my life took me in a completely different direction, until two years ago i haven't really done any gardening...

I have a wee bog garden next to pond with marsh marigolds, iris's and houttuynia, suppose that would carry the theme..

Thanks for your replies guys, the first picture might be some sort of Holly but it's not self seeding, it was forgotten about in a pot in quiet corner, when i discovered it i planted it under a cherry tree it had no label, like so many things in my garden..Geranium will suffice it is growing at side of shed will keep an eye on it FG..

You should know better FG "is it dry or wet" it's always wet in this lovely country of ours  no seriously it's dry due to the slope and rocks n gravel, unless the waterfall springs a leak.., we do love ferns, sedges i'll look into... FANKS

Some advice needed with this problem...

 Right in the corner where the hose for the pump comes out the pond it is pretty unsightly there is a plant just above that needs to come out, fortunately or unfortunately there's is a bees nest just below this plant, the entrance is between the light coloured rock and the exposed pond liner, we cant do anything until the bees move on, but want to take said plant out put trailing plant in and put pond plants in to cover liner and hose, question is can we safely use Glyphosate to remove plant and plant trailer in it's place, and if so any ideas for a trailing plant?

Thanks again in advance...

Another problem, what's the best way to stop the petals from getting into the little waterfall and eventually into the pond..


Best we can come up with is netting the bottom of the waterfall so as to catch the petals as they flow down...
