    Default Stunning plants

    Hey Marco, have you got any verbena bonariensis in your garden?



    It is a fabulous 'achitechtural' plant, we have quite a few around the garden.

    Hi Alan,

    Yes, we used to have some of that, but no longer do so. If I remember it had a rather pleasant perfume, and I believe that some soaps are made from it

    I think they are what the rest of us call 'weeds' Architectural weeds, of course.

    I've got a fair bit of that weed that leaves little 'bobbles' all over my clothes (and the dog). Can't remember what it's called. It seems to die out fairly quickly.

    Main system: MMs/ADCs/Low output MC's/One rare Japanese SUT/One scarce British phono stage/various tonearms/hefty Japanese DD TT and hefty Japanese BD TT and small British BD TT. 4 CD players/2 jitter buster/2 DACs/Valve buffer. TVC stepped attenuator or valve pre-amp or solid state pre-amp. Current dumping power-amp or either of two Class A SS power-amp or Class A EL34 valve monos or big Japanese (part Class A) integrated. Big dual concentric speakers/Smaller dual concentric speakers/Two way British compacts and full range speakers, amongst others. And too much more to list!

    I lived in a place where the garden was becoming over run with Japanese Knotweed. Supposedly one of the most resistant plants to any chemicals and major threat to the UK environment, as leave just one tiny piece behind in the soil and it will grow back in months. The landlord got in gypsies to get rid of it and whatever they did it worked and it never came back.

    Got horsetail... Its survived since the dinasaurs so just about impossible to kill. Anyway if others have it then the spores just come to you anyway... Its got some uses though, and makes a great pan cleaner
