How sad that it is poisonous! Pretty little thing, but no good for little people   My Peacock Orchid guess was way out then!

Some of you may remember that I had a rather sad looking Brugmansia a short while ago, this plant was a gift from a friends mother who was moving home and had no space for it. It has never flowered. After following advice from here I know have 4 flower buds! (fingers crossed they will actually go the distance!)

 Just two of them! I don't want to bore you too much..... *dances the happy dance* 

Thanks again for good advice 

 

Removing stubborn ornamental grass

It has had a good soaking, I will leave it to grow back a bit and just before I go away I will throw a pot of poison at it! Thanks for your help x

Thanks for the name Nutcutlet! It has been in for about 5 years and has really taken hold, I have been pulling out babies for years! 

Thank you Dove, brilliant idea! I am off on my holidays in 2 weeks so if I do it now hopefully by the time I get back it will have taken effect. As you can see from the top picture it is quite majestic when in full flow but has just taken over, it is time to go and be replaced with something I can prune! 

Removing stubborn ornamental grass

I have a very large grass in my front boarder that I have often seen at riversides. (the plant at the back of this photo)

I am having trouble removing it,

 I have cut it down, and as you can see the boarder is very narrow, I am having a devil of a job removing it, any suggestions? 

 

Plant ID please

Thanks Hogweed, I picked it up from a local community fair for £1 but they didn't know what it was! I just thought it was pretty, I shall go and investigate.
