Polemonium Problem

Sounds like Mildew which can kill plants. Water with a good fungicicde or make one from 9 parts water to 1 part full cream milk.

What is this?

Odd that one can only enlarge one photo, just the once. Makes anything a bit hard for me with my eyesight.

Any bee keepers out there to answer a question

I think you would find that by the time the rose flower is ready to drop the petals then any nectaries will have also stopped producing nectar too.

Also it depends on why the flower has a closed centre. Some of them have become double because the sexual parts of the flower have mutated into petals. That type do not produce nectar at all ever.

Plant identification please

Just to be a bit pedantic, it is not a Nepeta. That is Catmint, this is ground ivy. Same genus though.

Plant identification please

Really does look like a variegated ground ivy (Glechoma hederacea variegata). Does it have an unpleasant smell to the leaves, if so, then it definitely is.

Another Mystery Plant for identification.

That's the one I was trying to remember.  Nuisance of a plant.

If you look at the posting date of the original question it was asked in the middle of July 2012 which is a reasonable time for Bramleys to be coming into use.

My eyesight is not what it was, but it could be Veronicastrum, or then again to could be something else.

Plant id please

Crinum has been suggested too.

Talkback: Mullein moth

Posted: 25/06/2013 at 16:59

I actually only grow the native Mullein specifically for the moths. They make a dreadful mess of the plants, but so what. In  a garden this size we can hide things like that at the back of a deep border and no one but us sees it.
