Hello, I'm new to this forum and pretty new to gardening.

I moved into a property late last year and for the first time since I was a kid, I have a garden, which I'm very pleased about. I'm doing a gardening course next month but in the meantime I'm learning what I can from the internet.

I'm sure I'll have lots of questions, but firstly I want to find out what plants are in my garden, as I say, I'm a beginner and pretty much clueless to what everything is.

I took some pictures today and will attempt to post one below. I'm not sure of the etiquette of this forum so will post one for now.

Do people mind me posting a lot of pictures to find out what plants are? Should I stick to one plant ID per thrread or just shove as many pictures in as possible?

Thank you in advance for your help or feedback.

Cheers Jack

here's (hopefully)  the photo I want IDing thanks....

I'll try that again....

Welcome Jack  - best way to upload pics is to click on the little tree icon on the toolbar above where you type your posts and then follow the instructions.

Put them all on here - number them if you can - and we'll do our best.

No particular 'etiquette' here, just friendliness and mutual respect

Second request, ha! Does anyone know how to put an image direct from photobucket in a post, I'll try one more time.

I recognise that one but am struggling for it's name - I'll ponder and meanwhile someone will come along and beat me to it - think it has yellow daisy-like flowers? 

22/02/2014 at 16:40

Light is dawning - think it's Brachyglottis 


22/02/2014 at 16:40

I haven't seen it flower yet, it's very pale underneath, with a thick gnarled bark.

22/02/2014 at 16:40

The first one looks like a senecio, now called brachyglottis. yellow daisy type flowerered shrub.

2nd one a variegated pieris.

3rd one looks like umbrella papyrus aka Cyperus alternifolius

Oh, that was fast thank you.

22/02/2014 at 16:42

That's Senecio 'Sunshine', unless it's name has changed which I think it might have.

Yep, I was right, it's called Brachyglottis (Dunedin Group) 'Sunshine'

22/02/2014 at 16:43

Sorry fidgetbones, I'm cunfused I thought I only put up one plant?

22/02/2014 at 16:44


If you click on the tree icon on the tool bar, you can upload directly on to here.

22/02/2014 at 16:46

Thank you all. Very fast indeed!

22/02/2014 at 16:48

I haven't seen a pieris or a cyperus. I could only see the one pic

22/02/2014 at 16:50

I thought I only posted one picture.

22/02/2014 at 16:56

I connected to the photobucket llnk using cut and paste in the browser.

22/02/2014 at 16:56

When I first clicked on the Photobucket link there were three pics but the second time I clicked there was only the Brachyglottis. 

22/02/2014 at 17:01

I was about to say Senecio - the new name's not very attractive is it 

I do mine direct from photobucket Jack - but I don't think I'd be very good at explaining how!
