Yellow magnolia??

Posted: 11/03/2015 at 17:36

It does keep its colour better than some of the others. Ours is as I  said, only a small tree, but it has had up to 5 flowers on it each season since we bought it. More buds this year as it has grown a little.

PS WE bought it because when I counted the Magnolias in the garden I found 13 of them. After we planted it i found another one which I had missed so now we have 15 of them.

Chionodoxas and aconites - advice?

Find someone who sell Valentine's Day?

Not sure that anyone actually does. But the ordinary ones usually flower like that, just a little later that's all. If the molluscs don't eat the buds that is.

Ours do not do too badly, but then we do have hundreds of them so you tend not to notice a few eaten buds.

This is Scilla luciiliae (Chionodoxa) Valentine's Day without having been eaten.

We have one called Yellow Bird. Fairly new plant, but so far it has done well.

Sadly, yes, they will eat the flower buds, even below ground level.

That's the one I use. I went and looked at the bottle but never got round to re-posting.

Lighting in the Hall is Sodium flare so makes the flower colours hard to capture.

Our species Tulips are flowering. The badger ate all the others though, so none for us this year.

I use a Winter Wash based on Horticultural soft soap. Cannot remember the name . It seems to be on sale almost everywhere.

Friend or foe?

Looks very much like Geranium robertianum, aka Herb Robert.  It is a very pretty native wild flower which can become a bit of a seed weed if happy.
