Overgrown rockery

Roundup painted on the leaves of the plants you do not want is the only way to remove the plants you mention. Sad though.

Smilacina racemosa is exactly what it is, Ta. Knew as soon as Figrat said Solomon's seal that it was the False version of it. I have a fair collection of Polgonatums, the true Solomons Seal.

Oh how I wish we cold grow Halesia, the Snowdrop Tree, but sadly it needs boogy conditions and a warm sheltered site.

Age moment here. I should know this, but for the life of me the name will not come.

Sadly I do not have that excuse for not knowing what the Narcissus is, we planted all the ones growing here. We DO have something which removes almost all the labels and we rarely if ever find them.

I have always used Photobucket, it has been very successful for me over the years.

I took the liberty of enlarging the image. A bit less sharp than the original, but...........

Still not sure what it is, looks like a Currant of some description.

Please, I was not aiming my request at anyone in particular, it was just a general comment.  It is so frustrating to be unable to help when asked.

Can I make a plea about the size of photographs? We love helping people to identify their plants,weeds, insects, whatever. A. Because we like being helpful and B. Cos it allows us to show off . However, it is very difficult to do so if the picture is too small to make out the details.

The best size isprobably 640 by 480 pixels. That fills the screen nicely, but is not too large to be viewed.

Thanks.

Here is one I made earlier.

Egg identification - any ideas?

Posted: 07/05/2013 at 12:08

Yes, I have to agree that the clarity of the photos is very helpful.

And for some reason only half of my answer was posted. I did go on to say it is better to ask for identification than to leave nasties in the soil or to sit and worry about what villains one might have brought into the garden.

Wonder why my amswer was cropped!

I wish the picture was larger. 2 choices either Green alkanet or Omphalodes.
