what is this plant called

It is a real seed weed here. Grows even in the cracks between the path and the house.

Iris rules

Posted: 15/06/2016 at 11:04

Iris Pacific Coast types need a damp, but well drained soil in full sun. They come from the Pacific coastal area of the USA so they are used to warm Summers with a certain amount of water from mist rather than wet conditions.

Pest on Cherry tree branches

A little liquid soap on the brush would help too.

Creeping pest I.D. and help please?

It looks very much like Pearlwort (Sagina procumbens). Roundup will kill it, eventually. A flamegun will burn off the flowers and seed heads, but the plant seems to survive burning. This is what is known as a primary coloniser. It is one of the  first plants to grow on newly uncovered sites.

Identify shrub

I would have said Amsonia too, but as you say it is not really a shrub.

My Mahonia has snapped :-(

Mahonias may be pruned to within  a few inches of the ground and then they grow from the dormant buds in the stem. You end up with a multi-stemmed shrub, which is actually the best way to grow them. More flowers and more berries that way.
