Unidentified Plant!

'Tis a rather nice Aquilegia.

tulips

There are Tulips which produce more than one flower per stem, T kauffmannia types do it. Having said that, 8 is a bit extreme.

Hydrangea

Unless of course you live in an area where there are hard late frosts. In which case, while the plant lives, it never flowers as the new growth is killed by the frost. We have a few still around the garden and they have rarely flowered for us, as we get incredibly cold east winds which burn off the new stems almost every year. Even though they are planted in the most sheltered spot we have.

Give it a whirl though.

Fabulous plants and garden pictures there from everyone.

Chicky. There is a Viburnum plicatum mariesii in there yes and we do have Geum Bell Bank (along with about 30 others too!).

I could even name some of the flowers........if I really tried. If not I am sure Nutcutlet can do it for me.

Secateurs open?

Posted: 06/05/2014 at 21:27

I have removed the closing mechanism on my secateurs so they have to be stored open. Being left handed I got sick and tired of them locking shut every time I used them. One just has to learn to be careful where one leaves them.

Alpine ID please

The yellow flowered alpine Achillea has much bigger and hairier leaves than the plant shown. However it could still be an Achillea, the test is if the leaves are scented.

 

What is this?

snowberry bush

It is not going to be a quick fix, no matter what you use. I started killing the stuff 3 years ago on the road side near us, as it was obscuring the blind bend. I noticed today that they are new shoots appearing on it. I used Brushwood killer too!

Unidentified insect

One of the scale insects. The cotton is actually wax which makes them impervious to water. You need to use a horticultural soap to dissolve the wax and then the insecticide part can kill them. Brushing gently with soapy water also works, as does dabbing each one with methylated spirits. Depends on how many there are on the bushes.
