Cornus Canadensis

I grow it and struggle to keep it going, even in the woodland situation it is supposed to enjoy. They are also very expensive to buy.

Yes, they are suckers and you need to remove them. Try to find where they originate from on the root system and remove as close to the point of origin as possible. Any piece left will begin to regrow.

Any tree which is grafted has the potential to produce suckers, especially if the roots have been damaged in any way. Sad fact of gardening life really.

Best way to prune this flowering shrub?

Posted: 29/05/2014 at 10:05

Looks like one of the many Weigelas. We prune ours after flowering and reduce each branch by about a third.

Can anyone identify this flower for me please?

Lewisia cotyledon

anybody know what these are ??????

If that seed/berry has orange seeds inside it then it is Euonymus, if it is just a fleshy berry then it is Lonicera.

what is this?

Or Goatsbeard perhaps?

Plant identity?

As I said, there is a smaller growing version of this, possibly N. bulgaricum and that only grows to about 18 inches (here) and which produces hundreds of tiny bulbs and so is impossible to remove. I have been waging war on this for years.

Plant identity?

It looks like Allium siculum (syn Nectaroscordum siculum). There are two forms of this, a large tall plant which is reasonably well behaved and a smaller version which is an absolute thug.

uploading images

There is a line of small pictures at the top of the Message writing area. The last one on the right is a large blue pair of quotation marks. To the left of that is a Green one, some say a tree, it looks more like a cup to me though. Place the arrow of your mouse on it and it changes colour. The words Insert an Image or Video appear. Press the left hand button on your mouse.

You should then get a new screen. Put your mouse arrow over the word Select and press the left hand button on your mouse.

That should take you to your Laptop. You then need to find the picture you wish to Upload in your machine.

Position your mouse pointer over the picture and 'Click'. It should change colour.

Find the word Open at the bottom of the screen and 'Click' on it.

This takes you back to this site.

Find the word Upload and 'Click' on that.

Then wait, it does take a little time to load the picture.

Then finally Click on the word Save and hopefully that has worked for you.
