Plant ID and advice

That is part of their reproductive organs, so yes it is supposed to be there. In other forms it is much the same colour as the petals, so not as obvious.

ID needed please!

I don't actually eat the strawberries, they have a terrible effect on me. At least I don't eat them until they are made into Jam. I picked them for my wife who really does enjoy them.

Went and had a look at some of our Jasmines, if yours has reasonable sized flowers of a creamy hue then it could be J. Clotted Cream. Ours of that has slightly mottled leaves at first.

Be interesting to see when it does flower.

Certainly not a Hop or Bryony either. Interesting flowers.

Viburnum Tinnus Prunus looking poorly

Did you manure the soil before planting? Only Conifers are notorious for depleting the soil of nutrients. Also the conifer would acidify the soil. t Viburnums are not that fussy about pH, but if the soil was very acid it would not be happy and you would get some chlorosis, as your picture shows.

I would give the shrub a real good feed with Miracle Grow and see what happens.

Obelix beat me to it with Fiona Sunrise. I went out to look at it and got side tracked by a huge box of strawberries which needed picking.

There is Jasminum officinale 'Variegatum but I am not sure that yours is as variegated as this normally is.

We have one which appears variegated when the leaves are new, but they then turn green. It too has small white flowers.

First one is very Jasmine like. Not sure about the second, it could be a Honeysuckle.

Spring onions

At least you got them to begin growing. Over the last 45 years of trying I have never actually managed to get the seeds to germinate at all.

If it was a root pest, you would see the grubs on the base of the onions as that is where they hang out.

So after all that, we agree? Leave the poor Aconitums alone and enjoy the flowers!

Primula Auricula seedlings

I am waiting for the 1,000 I have grown from my own seed to flower. All open pollinated so there could be anything.

Great fun though.
