Fairygirl - Thanks for the advice. Sorry I didn't reply earlier.

One of the hydrangeas in my garden has a "baby plant" growing next to it.

Would it be because a lower branch which was very close to the ground has rooted?

Would I be able to separate the baby plant to grow in a pot or elsewhere in the garden?


In my garden today?

Posted: 10/07/2015 at 15:09

This morning I moved some of my pots from the patio by the house where they were in full sun and beginning to droop to shadier areas of the garden. They are mainly heucheras, geums and carnations from dividing larger plants so they need a bit of TLC. Also used round ice cream tub lids as pot saucers so that I can water them from the bottom.

Then I arranged the larger pots so I get the best view of them from the kitchen window especially as I bought this Lencanthemum on Wednesday and potted it up in a spare terracotta pot. It was half price in Morrisons and I only went in for 7up and a magazine.

Ceres - Thanks for the advice.

Just one more question - shall I wait until it has flowered before moving to another pot?

Wild Geum / Geum urbanum

Posted: 06/07/2015 at 11:48

I have a wild geum that has self seeded in my garden.

There are about 6-10 plants along the edge of the border in the shade of a big tree but some this year there are some in the lawn as well.

As I can't get much to grow under this tree as I was happy for them to grow there but I have read on here that they can be a bit of a thug.

Will they be much of a problem?






What is this Succulent Plant?

Thank you both for identifying the plant.

It's just normal compost in the trough and I have done nothing special to it since I got it from my Mum's. I just don't water it as much as my other pots.

As the sempervivum was producing lots of babies I was thinking about moving it to another pot. Are they okay to move?

Are they better in a pot by themselves? I have a couple of shallow round terracotta pots I could use.

Any help appreicated.

I inherited this trough from my Mum four years ago which I have been nuturing back to health.

Can anyone tell me what the succulent is?

One of them has now grown tall. Is this usual?

It is also growing amongst the red sedum and producing little baby plants

I added the geum to fill in the gap.


Is this a weed or wild flower

Hello Nutcutlet

Thanks for your reply.

I googled images of prunella vulgaris and it does look like my plant. Mine are very blue and it wasn't a trick of the light with the camera

There is a little clump of them.
