Having recently moved I’m discovering what I’ve got and planning what I want in my garden... this popped up in the wrong place, I’ve repotted until I can find out what it is then I’ll put it in a new spot according to its growing preferences.
thank you

    I think it's a Viburnum tinus plant...  what's the Harkness rose you have in the pot with it please, just out of curiosity?...

    It might be a Viburnum tinus?
    I don't grow that one myself, so not sure.
    Good luck with your new garden.

    Thank you!  I’ll look that one up.  I’m lucky there seems to be lots of self seeded surprises dotted around.
    The Harkness Rose is a patio rose called ‘Happy Days’ it’s awaiting its planting spot too...

    Hi Jess, yes... however that does sound remarkably like my garden!  We’ve been here a year, most of last year I observed and learned, this year I’m planning and reworking.  I had someone come to clear a lot of old woody prickly shrubs beyond nurturing yesterday who said to try making soup out of the ground elder new growth (whilst I’ve been digging up roots for weeks and getting nowhere!!) he suggested not fighting against it... so I’ll give it a try...his suggestion was anywhere you need to clear it do, anywhere you don’t, plant things that will grow above it and let it be green everywhere else (I did think it would be best to take any flowers off before they seed though!)... I’ll see how it goes!

    here are some of my primroses... I’m going to split them up after they’ve flowered and put them in the newly cleared ground

    I don't hold out much hope for that sky attachment growing well..... :D

    Love the native prims - they spread and grow so happily. 
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I noticed that after I took the pic! It’s on a steep bank and I hadn’t seen it before... I guess they couldn’t be bothered to take it with them...there is also a lot of debris to clear too amongst the nice bits... we have a fox family that walk through the garden dropping bits of litter as they go...it’s a constant battle at the moment!
