Gardener's World and the average gardener

It's been interesting to follow this debate. Although GW (Monty) only occasionally provides tips that I can I can make use of, it's still a pleasure to watch something for half an hour that doesn't include sex, murder or war!

Can anyone identify this for my friend?

Looks very much like a kiwi vine to me.

Hi rosemummy, this is a picture from Dobies Plants of Devon. They are in pots, so I presume they should be ok in your pots.

Never heard of them before now, but Google brings up this supplier in the UK. The varigated one looks nice.

Dill is particularly loved by the caterpillars of the Swallow Tail Butterfly. Well worth planting some in odd spots around the garden.


Steep slope planting plans - any photos?

Those sprang to mind here too, Lizzie, perhaps alternated with one of the vincas.


What is this?

Your Grandma will be thrilled, Charlie! Don't forget that Lithodora's like slightly acid soil, so if she hasn't got that, it might pay to add a bit of ericaceous compost to the soil.

I.D please :)

Looks like Ambrosia artemisiifolia a.k.a. Giant Ragweed, if so, the pollen can cause severe allergies.
