I'm having a similar problem with my Bishops Children, so very interested in any feedback.

Keep it or compost it? Plant ID

Thank you, I have now googled it and apparently it grows abundantly here in Denmark!  I think it is pretty so I shall keep it until it starts to set seed then pull it out.

Hi

I thought the leaves on this looked nice when it first appeared so I spared it from being weeded and it now has a nice flower.  What is it please?

I know it as belle de nuit, my French husband brought me back some seeds from his Father's garden, they were very easy to germinate. I have them in yellow and white as well as pink.

Snap to the lupins, I have attempted growing cuttings a couple of times but they failed.  I really need to try again.

Fantastic! I know the feeling, my family look at me like I am a total loon when I excitedly show them freshly germinated seeds.  I am turning in to a bit of a seedaholic now....... Be warned, that's the next stage......

There were quite a few of them in both pink and white.  I would love to try and grow some but I seem to have more than my fair share of slugs so think they wouldn't last long.

I took this when walking the dogs in a local park, not sure if it has self seeded somehow as there were a few of them scattered around.  Looks a bit exotic for a native to me.

What's your worst nemesis, your most dreaded weed or plant?

Ground elder, I wage a constant war with it as I refuse to use chemicals.  I have managed to pretty much tame the Ivy that was everywhere, it is now sort of where I want it.  Any weed that grows between the cracks in my paving slabs/bricks.......

I just have to keep pulling whatever it is up or hoeing it to keep it under control.

Does this make me a garden snob?

Had to resort to sprinkling Maldon sea salt on the slugs tonight as I'd run out of the basic stuff.....
