I think somebody rather SEEDILY have pranked my garden.

My border at the bottom of the garden, is a mess of knee height wild flowers. They are not even pretty wildflowers, they are all leaf and tiny little yellow blooms, that have already finished. I know I have not planted them. I think somebody must have tipped out a wildflower seed pack in my garden. That spot is normally a bit bare this time of year, as I have tall bulbs coming up, and Agapanthus which are not blooming yet. They are going to be drowning!

Good grief I hate ripping up flowers. sad

Could it be birdseed?

QuintessentiallyQS Mon 12-May-14 07:56:13

Blimey. We do have a bird table, but it is 2 meters away, and there is nothing just underneath.

wild flowers, blown by the wind, carried by birds, self seeded. lucky you

I appreciate the sentiment. But they are not nice.

I am not sure that I am happy ripping out something nature has provided for me.

Agapanthus and other bulbs will be fine amongst the wild flowers. You don't have to rip them up at all.

Have you got a picture of them - perhaps we could work out what they are?

Sounds like self set weeds. Our garden was, until the tulips finished, a pretty mess of gorgeous tulips, weeds and long grass.

Glad the tulips have all finished now and can't wait to attack it with the strimmer!

I will go and take a picture.

I will feel very hurt if I have been bulbously "cunted" - I am not aware of having done anything nasty to my neighbours, or their hedges!

FruVikingessOla Mon 12-May-14 09:29:11

Are the buttercups? There are loads in bloom round here at the moment.

They actually look like they could be buttercup, but with very small cups!

bulbously "cunted" grin

Sounds like something I have as well Quint, need a pic though

I'm going to essay a wild gues and say self-seeded rape. I have no idea what's caused it, but the stuff is bloody EVERYWHERE this year; road verges, the lot. It's pretty and it smells lovely. It's like someone got in a helicopter and just scattered it from high altitude.

Oh I was hoping this was a case of something rude spelt out.

Would love to sow the word TWAT in something colourful on my neighbours lawn but he would probably guess who did it.

NigellasDealer Mon 12-May-14 13:25:28

are you sure it's not ragwort?

Gosh I remember that thread where the suggestion of twat bulbing came up, ever since I've been sorely tempted.

and I was hoping it happened to you when I saw the thread title

Are they lesser celandine?

Almostfifty Mon 12-May-14 13:34:05

That's what I was going to ask spiderlight, if it is it will die off quite soon.

QuintessentiallyQS Mon 12-May-14 14:23:49

Well, they are not buttercup, and they are not rapeseed.

QuintessentiallyQS Mon 12-May-14 14:24:39

Here they are, the leaves are dark green, and the bloom rather "incognito".

I don't know much about gardening, but that looks a bit like a strawberry plant. Could it be a wild strawberry?
