Anyone able to identify these plants please?

Geranium, not well up on the  varieites.

Geum, probably urbanum which is an absolute thug.

Oh and checked around Mai Tai. There are two seedlings near to it. One is a very very pale yellow, upward facing flower, very much like Geum Kathryn and the other is very much like Mai Tai itself. Nothing round Totally Tangerine though.

This is Geum Firecracker, a lot more orange in it than the pictures shows. Flower is a good 2 inches across.

Small green eggs? in compost.

Posted: 19/05/2015 at 12:32

You would not believe the number of people who take back plants to Nurseries because of the 'insect' eggs in the compost.

Probably the most frequently asked question on any of the Gardening Websites.

For those interested, most insect eggs are too small to be seen with the naked eye. Mollusc eggs are generally clear or when about to hatch, milky white.

Very easy from seed, too easy from seed, far far far too easy from seed. BUT, the named ones do not always come true to name so what you get may be better or worse.

Was thrilled to see a plant which arose in my garden on sale at a Plant Fair on Sunday.

It is possible that the ones you mention are sterile. Never checked on mine to see if there are any 'wildings' around them.

I have over thirty of the things and would have more, but I have been ordered to stop buying them.

How can they get it so wrong

I like it when they show the 'latest' satellite image with it showing clear skies over us and yet it is pouring with rain..............or vice versa.

clematis wilt?

Posted: 14/05/2015 at 20:40

Not wilt, it does not get Clematis montana. Easy enough to tell, Wilt starts at the bottom of the stem and works up. If the leaves are drooping from the top of the stem downwards then it is something else. Look at the base of the 'wilting' stem and see if something has eaten the bark off it. Snails love rasping away at Clematis stems and then that stem will die back.

What is this flower

Posted: 14/05/2015 at 16:17

Will be better planted out in the garden. They are hungry plants and to flower well they need food.
