What is this plant? Could it be a weed?

Posted: 14/08/2014 at 08:13

I agree with the others, I have a couple in my garden, but don't worry about seedlings, they are very easy to pull out, I only find 3 or 4 seedlings each year.

Thanks for the great link, Tee Gee. Unfortunately I live too far away to visit your lovely UK gardens and shows and love looking at them online!

There's a extra large supermoon expected tonight, you're very lucky to see it, rain obscuring the sky here.

Hi Mark, yes do remove them, they should come up again, have just done mine. If you leave some of your favourite ones, they will probably self seed and you will get new ones next year, though maybe not as big.

Plant ID please

Wow, that is really pretty!

Is there such as thing as a potted tall evergreen climber?

Hi Mck, have a look at this RHS site, it will explain everything, from planting to pruning and training Trachelospernum jasminoides.

I cursed mine too, they took over the whole border and even came up in another border across the lawn. 2 years ago I sprayed them with glyphosate and was convince they were gone. The other day I noticed that 3 have come up again!

How to freeze French beans??

Posted: 15/07/2014 at 19:27

I freeze mine raw. Place them loosely on baking paper on a pizza tray or similar and put into freezer for about 1 1/2 hours. Put the frozen beans into a plastic bag and seal with a clip, that way the beans stay loose and you can take out handfuls as needed. This works for French beans, have never tried runner beans.

Don't just boil them in water, they will go soggy. Melt a knob of butter in the saucepan and swirl them around, then add just enough water to stop them burning, turn down to low once simmering until done. If your diet doesn't allow butter, steam them.
