Please help me identify

It certainly does look like Geum, probably urbanum, which is an terrible seed weed.

Not C, purpurescens either. Leaves are wrong. That is a fairly standard C. persicum. Kept in the right conditions it will flower for months. Not hardy though so once temps drop below 5c it is going to struggle.

Plant id please - red berries

Could be Lonicera maackii. In which case, no the berries are not eidble to humans.

Badgers destroying plum tree

Young one certainly could. they are also very good climbers. All you can really do is to protect the tree. Encircle  it with wire netting or if your pocket runs to it try an electrified fence.

Plant identification No. 2 please

Does have the look of the native Privet which is deciduous rather than evergreen so the leaves are a lighter green than the normal hedging type.

Wyevale gone to pot!

Just have a look at what Woevales have done to Bridgemere. Used to be full of their own grown plants and now...............horrendous.

Anyone recognise this plant?

We certainly spend as much time as we can out there.


No, just grow to sell a few for charity. Many of the ones in the trays are Auricula seedlings. Most if not all will be thrown away after seeing what the flowers look like.

Problem with the apple trees

Posted: 05/09/2016 at 16:23

All you can do with the lichen is scrape it off. It is just a sign of clean air. The spots are Scab. Difficult to deal with. there are now no fungicides available to the amateur. If you can get hold of Copper sulphate from a Wine making outlet then you could spray with that. It is reasonably organic . Otherwise peel the fruit before eating. Collect up and do not compost any scabby leaves and fruit.
