Sad front garden

The quick fix on your neighbour's bushes is food and water - try a couple of cans of general fertilizer, and I think you'll see a difference.

Clematis armandii

Have you had any strong winds lately? If they were very strong through the trellis they might affect it, as I've found it to be happiest on a warm wall.

Laburnum die back

It should be fine in any soil. The one thing it doesn't like is being waterlogged.

Do asiatic lillies rebloom?

Only one set of blooms per stem, I'm afraid - that's your lot until next year. Remove spent flowers unless you want the seeds, and feed a bit while dying back to plump up the bulbs for next year. They'll vanish quite quickly.

Brown leaves on my silver birch

Sorry, no. You can wait until next year and hope, but I don't think you'll get anything.


However, the good thing about birch is that it grows fast, and if you replace the tree  (use a professional, not a "tree surgeon" that knocks at every door in the street, carrying a chainsaw), you will have a new young tree in about 3 years.

Can you identify this poppy?

Can you identify this poppy?

I think it might be Thompson & Morgan's "Burgundy Frills", which is p. somniferum.


See what you think:

Reminds me of Virginia Creeper?

Yellow leaves on rose

It's possible the ants have a nest under the rose, and the roots are being deprived of food and water. Also, you talk about "much washing" - have you put so much water on the roots that you've washed the nutrients out of the soil?
