I’m looking to buy a replacement plastic cover for one of my greenhouses, but can’t find one the right size online
my greenhouse is the “usual” 49cm deep, and 160cm nphigh, but is 89/90cm wide (all I can find online seem to be 69cm wide)
anyone have any ideas as to where I can find one? Online ideally but Even a “real” shop would be useful.

I'll ask the land owners what to do about them. Thanks!

Not in a garden but saw this on the Common yesterday. Can anyone id it? Is it native?

Thanks, no wonder it looked naggingly familiar, this grows wild on the local Common. Perhaps I brought back a seed on clothing (or a bird pooped it out...). I do like the flowers I've seen on big ones. Advice seems to be prune hard early spring to get strong new growth and keep small, so I'll take a chance and cut back now as I do need it to stay small, and will hope it flowers this summer 👍

i feel I *should* know what this is, and will go "of COURSE" when I'm told . But I've been racking my brains and drawn a blank. It's about 10 inches tall at the moment. Ideas please?!

Yes, but if, as is normal, the original was grafted on to a Tree peony rootstock, what you have there are shoots coming from below the graft point. So when they flower, they may well be the standard, P lutea or P. l. rubra.
On the other hand you may be fortunate and have a peony grown on its own roots, in which case......time will tell.See original post
Thanks! On Googling p lutea that looks like the flowers there's been for the last 3 years anyway, so if that's the "basic" variety then I'll be more than happy to have that back!

i inherited a quite old tree peony when I moved in, which has flowered decreasingly in 3 years. I've done nothing too much to it, which probably hadnt helped.
anyway this spring all the main branches are completely dead so I've just cut them down apart from one which may have an inkling of life left, but at the base by the stumps I noticed have appeared some new shoots. Am I
right in thinking these are tree peony shoots (arrowed)?

My logic is, if it would've cost money it's Not A Weed. I use this logic to justify to thecatsfather spending more money ("well this has self seeded/appeared/grown from a cutting etc, and it would've cost £8, so I can now spend that £8 on Something Else") . Recently used after liberating a pretty campanula from between pavement slabs down the road, and transplanting valerian from the street gutter to the garden

I got sweet rocket seeds free with either GW or Garden Answers mag last year, and threw them liberally on the garden. They are now everywhere! So pretty sure that's what they are :) S

Yes I know about the dock thanks fidgetbones. Been away for a week then a week of rain, and everything has GROWN, but the yellow thing which I had assumed was a weed and pulled out shoots in previous years, has flowered today so wanted to check!
nutcutlet, from pics online you're right, thanks! It's for sale on Crocus etc (diervilla sessilifolia) so officially Not A Weed . And they say it goes well with hypericum, which it's next to, so looks once again like another wise planting by our house's predecessor-before-last :)

Those patio clematis are the ones I linked to, the Boulevard collection. good to see Abilene in real life; gives me a lot of confidence in getting one, thanks Chicky

Ive been looking into small low growing clematis and think I'm going to get some from the Boulevard Collection

Cherry (esp if edible) would make sense as it's in the "fruity section" of the garden, which was well planned out by last-but-one owner. It's between a gooseberry bush and a tayberryy, and near a plum, greengage & Apple trees.
getting excited now, looking forward to cherries, nomnomnom

I've found this Qualcast edger really good to use, and have used it to create the edges for a new flower bed cut from my lawn, as well as edging around the patio. Having the little platform to stand and push on makes it so much easier (and safer) to use, for me at least.
