Gladiola bulbs being dug up

Posted: 28/06/2016 at 16:20

A deep hole like that definitely suggest badger to me. They will eat a fair number of different bulbs and once they get the taste for them they will continue to dig them up. We have lost over 1500 tulip bulbs this last few months. Very difficult to stop them too!

whats this please

See if you can pick up a white flowered one and then from the seeds you will get various pink shades as well.

What did I buy?

Could be P douglasii Eva. or P.d. Pride of Ronsdorf. They are both pale pink versions.

Infestation on my Day Lillies

Posted: 26/06/2016 at 15:35

Been suffering with this for years. Sadly we have had to remove almost all of the Hemerocallis plants from the garden. Despite removing every flower bud on every plant for a couple of years, they are still affected. Plants which take up that much room and no flowers are not earning their keep. Hope you can solve it in your garden.

Definitely one of the Phlox douglassi/subulata tribe. There are lots of slightly different ones.

What's this on my Aster leaves?

Posted: 23/06/2016 at 16:24

Leaf miner. The insect lives inside the leaves so it is very difficult to remove. Unsightly rather than injurious. Cut off the leaves if they offend you.

Pruning flamingo willow

Posted: 23/06/2016 at 11:33

Bit late now, but as long as the branches are alive pruning back should stimulate new growth nearer to the trunk. You will probably lose the catkins, but it is not really grown for that. Try feeding it after pruning as well, with a high nitrogen fertiliser to stimulate leaf growth.

Japanese anenome under new turf

Good luck with it. Like Yviestevie I have been battling Japanese anemone for getting on for 20 years now and still it comes up.

A pink Geum like Totally Tangerine?

Geum Bell Bank, has been around for a long time. It is not as tall as Totally Tangerine though.
