Plant that will grow up a stick...

That set up, looks far too flimsy to support your washing and that pole would not support a climber, sorry.

There are some nice small Berberis', which may fit your requirements.

Stipa arundicea, is a grass that would be good [ it is now called something else, but you could look it up under this name ]

Carex commans is another suitable grass.

That is P. vialli.

I would normally divide after flowering, but now should be fine.

Which is it?

You are right herbaceous, both belong to the Mallow family.

Very toxic spray, that will kill a lot of good bugs.

Lilly beetles are easy to manage by squashing them.

Hello Forkers ... July Edition

Was it something I said?

No posts since 10.00am.

Have done some weeding and am trying to tempt OH into trying some lunch.

At least she cooked dinner last night, so i can't be blamed if it is food poisoning.

They will be fine left where they are.

It is a good idea to mark where they are, so you don't damage them if you are digging.

Hi all.

Torrential rain in the night, I am well past the stage of saying that the garden needs it.

OH was poorly during the night, most unusual, she has the constitution of an Ox.

Have left her in bed and I am going to do some more jungle taming.

Have a good day.

Does anyone know this plant

I like T.flavum subsp. gaucum.

Tall, bluish leaves and yellow flowers. Grows well in my bog garden.

T. Black Stockings is also lovely, with very dark stems.
