I can't see any hedges nearby - it's all fenced up around here but maybe there's a rogue bush somewhere...

I was going to blame the birds though

Hello, can anyone give a name to these things I've been finding all over the garden?

They have a tough stem with nobbly bits on and a thick white root:

Thank you

PM for you soulboy

Which company to order seeds and plants from...

Nice mix Tootles I just looked up the ones I didn't know.

I think it's nice to find different seeds by shopping around, esp perennial stuff. If i can't find the plant I've started looking for the seeds to try to grow it instead...

I ordered the Scabiosa BB too - hope they're really that colour!! I also ordered some Penstemon called Lilac Frost which look quite exciting

Oooh! What have you bought Tootles?

I've not ordered from Chiltern before but am about to place an order as they have the California poppies and hopefully the kind of monarda I'm after (don't know the name)

I ordered from Moles and Nicky's seeds for most of this year's requirement. I'll report back with my findings in due course

Anyone done any gardening today?

Did some planting today, some stuff sat about in pots and moved a couple of things since the ground was defrosted.

Noticed my first clutch of seeds have hatched and sowed some pink linaria. Hope they're first year flowering - need them for this year

Also had a brilliant idea for the top of the garden so tomorrow I'll be scrapping the current bed before it's even had a chance to shine and moving everything around

Hello. I'm new!
