Help with plant identification

When did you take the picture?

If it is flowering now, then it is awfully early for a Hydrangea. In that case I would say it was a Viburnum.

Phlox subulata/douglasii  flower now too. Close up of the flowers etc. would help no end.

Thank-you! I wondered who was walking round with me. Trouble is that people can get lost in there and never be seen again.

How much stone to remove.

Posted: 01/05/2015 at 08:44

I leave the small stones, but the broken glass, pottery, old batteries and scrap metal gets removed. For once I agree with Mr. Allen. In normal conditions every stone is a little water reservoir. The soil under a stone stays cooler and wetter and the stone itself has a film of water on its surface. Besides who has the time to be so tidy?

Dying hydrangeas

As to the one planted last year, don't forget that they are deciduous plants. It is natural for them to look like dead twigs over winter.

Linaria purpurea comes to mind.

Had a nice surprise today, was offered this aerial shot of the garden. Our property is the one on the right hand side of the image. And as, the Boss says, no washing out for once.

Clematis Montana Wilt

Posted: 24/04/2015 at 08:47

Molluscs do tend to rasp away at the stems and can devastate even an established Clematis. One of ours was damaged by the cat using it as a claw sharpening post.

One thing though is that it definitely is NOT Honey fungus. The yellow stuff is the sap from the Clematis itself. You would see a lot of other problems if it was Honey fungus.
