Gigantic Knautia Macedonica (Scabious) invasion

Posted: 15/09/2015 at 23:04

The only Scabious like plant that I know would grow to that height is Cephalaria. It has yellow flowers.

Verdun. I am sorry if this sounds ruder than meant, but there are a lot of people alive today due to experts.

Identify a plant

I agree. It is unlikely to be hardy in most of the UK.

Like the idea of a Kindle, but I love the feel of an old fashioned book, even if they are a pain to take on holiday.

Seeds sown, rain was so heavy, it was starting to find its way into green house, where panes of glass have slipped.

Hi Runny, how is the Shingles?

This will probably sound pretentious, but I tend to read books that have won literary prizes in the last few years and then a few favourites , such as Iain Banks and David Mitchell.

Hope the wedding organisation keeps going well fidget.

Am off to the greenhouse to sow a few seeds.

Morning all.

Very wet and dark here, plus there is a jack hammer being used nearby and the noise is somewhat annoying.

Must go into town and buy some more books, as it looks like a wet Autumn ahead.

have a good day all.

Where to buy native plants/seeds?

Narcissus pseudonarcissus is a native.

That makes me feel much better Yvie, I have spent a fortune on more Tulips this year, plus lots of other bulbs, as I always think I will be able to fit them in somewhere.

Against all logic.......

The great C. Lloyd when asked when do you prune such and such a shrub, said whenever I am in the mood and happen to have a pair of secateurs with me.

Plants want to live and IMO, you can do most things to most plants, most of the time.

Rained solidly all day and starting to get heavier.

I have been thinking about turning heating on as well, but I will not do it, I really won't, well perhaps.

Off to cook dinner now, hope OH does not have too bad a drive back from Leeds, 3 hours traveling a day is no fun.
