I’ve just moved house and inherited a wonderful well kept garden, but no idea what anything is in it! I am a complete novice 😊

Could this be a peony do you think? #plantid

The picture is a bit far to see but it looks like a hydrangea.

@ublaszko thank you! I think you’re right - my friend said she thought it was and I couldn’t remember what she said 😁 I am a complete beginner! 😊

Me too! I've learnt a lot of plant names through the GT. 👍

@ublaszko is it better to do a close up then? I took it from a bit further so you could see the size of the plant!

For me, it's easier to ID a plant if I can see leaves or flowers up close. They're usually quite distinctive and help me jog my memory. 😊

We do love a close up👍 Urzula I thought it was a 1 stemmed mock orange if there's such a thing 🙈 @ublaszko

I believe there is one if you buy it from Poundshop 😁😁 I definitely saw a few one- stemmed mock orange when I was there to buy the second one for my garden. @Denise16 I think the stems and leaves on this photo look a bit too large for mock orange.

It has a flat head of green flowers at the top now, I think it is #hydrangea? Though what do I know 😆
