Please identify this geranium

Question from Simon Lucas

In forum: Identify a plant

It looks like a field mallow, but taller. It attracts bees strongly in summer, but I don't know its name.

Thuja Plicata Atrovirens or Thuja Plicata Martin

Question from khurm chaudry

In forum: Trees and shrubs

I am looking for privacy trees, as I have some flats overlooking my back garden.

I have narrowed the trees I want to either 1) Thuja Plicata Atrovirens or 2) Thuja Plicata Martin, but am confused on which of these to go for. I would like answers to my questions below to decide.

Questions:
1) Which of these is the quickest growing?
2) What is the maximum height each of these trees can reach?
3) Keen to avoid cleaning leaves and trees waste. Do shred bark or cones?
4) How many trees would I need to plant to cover 17m?

I would greatly appreciate some advice.

This has grown, uninvited, in my greenhouse. I rather like it, but it’s about 8 feet tall and still growing. Can anybody tell me anything about it please? It currently has around 3 shiny green seed pods on it. Thanks in advance.

Can anyone identify this shrub?

Question from Simon Berry

In forum: Identify a plant

I have a shrub which we would like to identify (it came with the house!). I'm sure it would like ot be a tree if left to it's own devices, it's decidious, as you can probably se from the leaves, a lime hater but has the most glosious scent this time of the year. Flowers from september.

Many thanks

What are these weeds (?)

General post from Ben Abbotts

In forum: Identify a plant

I have a house which I have lived in for the last ten years and there has never been anything significant in the lawn weed wise. I recently rented the house out and the tenants have alerted me to these weeds (?) growing and expanding, I would much appreciate guidance on what they are and how to kill them off.
