Leaf cutting bee help URGENT

Runnybeak. Not sure now what the seedlings were. Such a long time ago. The bee larva hatched and flew away in the spring. I do know that much.

Comes in various forms. V. opulus sterilis is the one which has the biggest flowers and is generally the one sold as the Snowball Tree. Then there is the standard one which has red berries and V.o. xanthocarpa which has yellow berries. We have all three.

When did you take the picture?

If it is flowering now, then it is awfully early for a Hydrangea. In that case I would say it was a Viburnum.

Phlox subulata/douglasii  flower now too. Close up of the flowers etc. would help no end.

Thank-you! I wondered who was walking round with me. Trouble is that people can get lost in there and never be seen again.

How much stone to remove.

Posted: 01/05/2015 at 08:44

I leave the small stones, but the broken glass, pottery, old batteries and scrap metal gets removed. For once I agree with Mr. Allen. In normal conditions every stone is a little water reservoir. The soil under a stone stays cooler and wetter and the stone itself has a film of water on its surface. Besides who has the time to be so tidy?

As to the one planted last year, don't forget that they are deciduous plants. It is natural for them to look like dead twigs over winter.
