Can anyone help please

Looks very much like a thing we have for making wigwam style bean supports You slip bamboo canes through the holes into the ground and this holds them together at the top.

Can anyone identify this it comes up every year

Looks like one of the Persicaria tribe to me.

Mutated leaves

Not mutated, rather it is the galls caused by a small wasp, bit like Oak apples on an oak tree.

how does I collect seeds of my Fuchsia?

Black and squidgy ones are ripe. If you leave them too long and they go mouldy then the seeds would be damaged.

Whats wrong with my apple tree?

As likely as not it is Apple scab. This is the same sort of problem which affects Roses. Either ignore it or spray with a suitable fungicide. Collect up any fallen affected leaves and dispose, not in the Compost heap.

Fuchsias have berries, very juicy berries, which contain the seed. You would need to collect the berries when they are soft and ripe. Spread them out on a tray to dry and then wash the flesh away from the seeds. The seeds are not very big so be careful not to wash them away.


Remember that the fancy flowered types are hybrids and so do not come true from seed.

Olearia pruning

Posted: 05/07/2016 at 08:57

Olearia phlogopappa 'Comber's Pink'
Will this shoot from old wood? Or is it like say Lavender and only grows from fresh growth?

Plant ID please

Self-heal. Prunella vulgaris. It is a common weed of lawns.

I.D please

That looks like Houttuynia cordata 'Chamaeleon and if it is it is an awful thug where suited. Crush a leaf and smell it. Supposed to smell 'fishy'
