Hi Mistertiler

I found this on Google

I had one for several years. It lived in a pot and was cut down to about 12 inches in late autumn and stored in a cool dry place. Around March/April it would sprout again and was kept outside in a sunny place all summer and was covered in flowers. The bees loved it.

Plants to identify - grasses and some sort of monster

Sorry, Verdun! I do like grasses, but I guess it makes a difference if you've got huge borders. Mine are only about 4 ft wide and the one the grass was in was only 8 ft long, so not enough room for a mixed border and the grass creeping through it all as well.

Imperata cylindrica 'Rubra': I had that in my border for 2 years, but had to remove it as it spread like mad, for me it's a thug!

I think you are on the wrong forum, lucky, this is a gardening forum, doubt you will find any removal experts!

What is it and what's going on?

Here it is right way up. The leaf looks like a banana, but the flower certainly is strange!

Thought my "black" toms wouldn't ripen either, now they're all turning at once! Am completely swamped with Tumbling Toms, have decided to give one pot to neighbour so he can pick them himself!

Get it off your chest

Mine is just like that, Dove, plus putting in hooks and lifting, moving heavy baskets, pots etc. Just the way I like it!

Not all rhubarb varieties have red stalks, either.
