    I have one about 3m tall but skinnier than that, its colour peaked a couple of weeks ago and looks a bit drab now.

    Mine seems to be a ground hugger, spreading out the way, not up.

    They have a large range of species from Ceanothus arboreus and Ceanothus griseus that grow 12 to 18 feet high and 15 to 20 feet wide to Ceanothus griseus horizontalis that grows 1 to 3 feet high with a spread to 4 feet.

    Wildlife and pollinator garden I've been building over an old lawn starting to come into flower. Got sick of mowing all the time.

    Beautiful. I’ve just bought house with a lovely garden. There is also an extra bit of land adjacent to the garden. There is nothing in it atm. Looking at this pic makes me consider a wild garden. How difficult is it to grow and then maintain?

    Could be an agapanthus. Can we see the leaves, please?

    Hello, there is no leaves just a long narrow stem, and what you see on top of it.

    Spuds in bags this year - the lazy gardener :)

    This might be a silly question, but how do you deal with blight in back garden spuds?

    In my case I just hope they don't get it. If it's later in the season I'll cut the stalks back and try and save the crop. I have gotten blight lots of times used to spray them but even then it was hit and miss whether you'd protect them at the right time.
