WILD FLOWERS

Post by Placido » Sat Sep 28, 2019 4:49 pm

This is growing between the flagstones on my patio and I've left it in peace and today had a hunt for its identity. It's a Marsh dock (of which I've never heard :scratch:). Apparently it's "uncommon" so I'm a bit thrilled :clap:

It is amazing how the plants turn up out of the blue. I am always delighted when something rarer turns up but I can never figure why it is there and who brought it.

I really love the wild flower aspect of gardening. I give everything a chance until it is identifiable and then it can be discarded or kept 'cos you never know .....
That's how I got my beloved mulberry, and the silver birch. The fact that they're freebies has absolutely categorically nuffink to do with it :rolleyes:.
