I have a rather big blueberry bush/shrub(??) plant?
in a container, have just harvested the last berries and now I wonder whether I can prune it back a little bit or would it damage the plant? it has grown quite vigorously.....
I would be grateful for some experts advice!

Thank you Welshonion, I am thinking to use my own seeds from the garden.
I planted a tiny parsley plant in my garden, bought in a supermarket 2 years ago.
It has grown enormously, lots and lots flowers which will set seeds - hopefully.!
So it should be safe....

I have Lavender under my roses, it keeps the greenflies away

Yes, the first one is an evening primrose, they smell very nice in the evening/night, the moths are feeding on them

It's a linaria purpurea, it is very easily grown from seed, I have also a pale pink version,
but - they spread like mad, I live in the south, so they behave like perennials and grow back every year.
They are beautiful in a bunch of flowers and the insects love them.

Hi Laura, I think this is a Camellia sinesis

Yes, that's what I thought. I use fennel seed, cardamom seeds, cumin seeds - so why not parsley seeds? It's just strange that they are nowhere mentioned in cooking, anyway I'll give it a go!
Thanks again for you reply!!

Thank you Pete8, that helps a lot, I was wondering whether I could use them in cooking, because they have quite a strong "parsley-smell". So obviously the seeds are not poisenous and I'll give it a go! Should be fine in soups and stews....

Maybe there is an expert out there:
Does anyone know whether one van eat or cook with Parsley Seeds? I have tried Google and Wikipedia, could not find anything.
Thanks in advance

It's an allium, I have lots of them in my garden, the bees love them.

Roses in pots can be fine, as long as the pot is large enough and you'll have to refresh the compost every year. I have grown several roses in pots for 10 years now, never had any problems.

Yes, it's horsetail/mares tail. Soak the soil first, makes it easier to pull them out. Try to get every little root, otherwise they will grow again.

It looks like Solidago, I have lots of them in my garden, they look the same.

You are right, it is a kind of poison. But I only use it on the small weeds who are creeping up in between the pavement gaps in my driveway and are very tricky to get out.
I woul not use it on soil !
