Turquoise berried shrub

Callicarpa bodinieri var. giraldii 'Profusion has odd coloured berries and is not too large.

Saxifraga

The first 2 need very little doing. You can if you have the patience go over them and remove the finished flowers. I never do. If happy they my well seed around for you. If the clumps get too big then it is easy to pull out the offending bits.


The Saxony ones need the same sort of treatment too. Just go over them with a pair of scissors and cut off the dead flowers. Or not, if you are time pressed.


These are so called Mossy Saxifrages by the way,

That depends on which Saxifrages you have planted. There are different types and each requires a different method of growing.


Can you remember the names and add them to this question?

Don't forget that you may not take plants out of the garden without informing the purchaser before hand that they are excluded from the sale. If you can then do it now, but water well first and take as big a root ball and soil as possible. Keep the pots cool and well watered.

Cannot find anything on the dilution rate for Sunflower oil. but one person posted that they used 1 cup of oil plus 1/4 cup of liquid soap in a sprayer and top up with warm water. Shaken not stirred! No mention of the size of sprayer though.

Please help identify this self seeded plant

I would remove it myself. They can be pruned as hard as you like, but it is not a particularly pretty shrub and there are plenty of them in the hedgerows already so not even rare.

Anyone know what disease this is?

That looks like a very very bad infestation of scale insects. If the trees are yours then you need to get them sprayed as soon as possible with a soap based insecticide.

A couple of plant ID's, please.

Is the first one Hesperis matrionalis alba?

A couple of plant ID's, please.

Rhodiola is what I was brain searching for. Rose root is its common name.
