    To me it looks like a tradescantia, or a tricyrtis image

  • Thanks Ryan, I have googled both of them and been on Rhs and it could be the tradescantia. I appreciate the photo I have put on perhaps isn't the best. But thanks a lot for commenting I really appreciate it image

    Valerian?

    You don't stop doing new things because you get old, you get old because you stop doing new things. <3

    I think Valerian, Centranthus ruber, not valeriana.

    Is that the plant that helps you sleep Nut?

    Valeriana officinalis, yes. In theory. Never tried it. Don't know whether to chew the leaves flowers or roots.

    I have bought it ready done from the health food shop in the past although thankfully haven't needed it recently.  I think you can make tea from it but not 100% sure image

    I believe it's the roots, it was on Midsomer Murders a couple of months ago image

    Maybe I should try. I spend far too much time awake between midnight and breakfast
