    The last 2 aren't anything I grow Lorna. I wouldn't know a canna from a canna beans

    Ok thank you nutcutlet, you have been very helpful,

    thank you so much.xx

    Thanks Jo47, i usually keep the label with the plant, but over time they were off of the wind have blown them away, that's if i get any label's with them, i'm just trying to look things up to make sure i have things in the right place in the garden.

    Thanks for your help.xx

    Hi Lorna. To add to the names already given:

    Number 9 is Zantedeschia aethiopica

    Number 10 is Chrysanthemum coronarium

    You have a lovely collection there but beware of the Himalayan balsam as it seeds itself everywhere! The Houttuynia can also be a bit of a thug but its bruised leaves smell of bitter oranges which some gardeners rather like.

    Hi Ladybird4

    Thank you for naming number 9 and 10 and thanks for the advice on the himalayan balsam, The houttuynia i have in a pot so hopefully it won't get to out of hand.

    Thank you again for the advice.xx

    personally I'd remove the balsam. As ladybird says it seeds everywhere, sometimes many metres from the parent plant.

    Many waterways are plagued with it .

    Hostafan i didn't realise it was that bad, i've never seen it before,

    My next door neighbour has it in both her front and back garden, if i pull it out i hope i don't keep getting the seeds from next door, i suppose i'll just have to keep pulling it out.

    Thanks for the info Hostafan.xx
