Got it: thanks so much. Yes, it's a thalictrum aquilegifolium, which is probably why I kept expecting it to turn into an aquilegia. This is a brilliant forum: we should get together and make a virtual garden!
Thanks for your advice. Centaurea looks the most likely candidate, except for the leaves... when the weather improves I will take a better picture.
This has appeared for the last couple of years: any ideas what it might be?
Thank you: I think I'll let their parents 'bring them up' ...
There are a number of ceanothus cultivars which flourish in England, as well as in N. America, but I have found that some are not reliably hardy, so this one deserves a medal for growing in the wild on Hadrian's Wall!
Ours was 10 ft tall and did the same last year. They then went brown and fell off: strange for an evergreen, I thought. The bark was split, so we decided to cut it down to 2 feet and it is now a very healthy coppiced bay. Is yours in a pot? Has it got ants?
I have dug up and divided a huge clump of iris bulbs which didn't flower this year. I plan to replant them, but what do I do with the bulblets? Will they develop into full sized bulbs? If so, do I leave them attached to the 'parent' or separate them? Thanks.
Yes, it looks like lantana to me
Thanks for the tip: it is in a good position to twine through other things if I can just get it started.
Thanks obelixx: I will give it a strong drink and see if it helps.
