Another plant/shrub that needs identifying :) Thank you

I think it is Rubus arcticus. Can be quite an invasive plant too, where suited. I killed it!

Talkback: Snowdrop pot display

Posted: 04/03/2014 at 17:44

When I do a pot of snowdrops for showing, once they have finished I plant them out in the garden where they would normally enjoy growing and leave them to it until it is time to dig them up  the following season. Label carefully.

CELENDINES

We have them, I ignore them to a large extent. I have a white form and somewhere a double white one too. Also of course there is Brazen Hussy which has the bronze coloured leaves.

Helleborus argutifolius?

And on the where did that come from thing, I have just found a pure white double flowered one next to a very dark red double one. Now I remember planting the red, but certainly would not have planted the white one right next to it.

 

And the other plant for poor soil in a shady patch would be H. foetidus.

Helleborus argutifolius?

Certainly does look like H. argutifolius. Bird dropping?

Quince Dilemma

Posted: 28/02/2014 at 13:04

Chaenomeles may be pruned to keep it within bounds. We have a lovely one which is tied in to a trellis and thought it is 6 feet tall, it is no more than 2 inches wide at any point. Don't get much fruit on it, but it does flower well.

Vranja is prone to suckering as well, by the way. BUT I cannot see any reason for it to damage your wall as the roots are fairly shallow and not that spreading. There are no roots coming from our Queeches Prolific Quince tree under the lawn near to it.
