It had absolutely no effect on my broken toe, which took nearly 5 months to mend.

Too wet? Overfed? This Crab apple only seems to produce fruit every other year for us.

Any information helpful!

There is a Variegated form and a double Variegated form mentioned in the Plant Finder.

Here we go again, another wander round the old homestead. Tried to take different angles this time, but not easy.

Not really, they are fairly bomb-proof. Some of them are really hardy too. They can stand some frost as long as they are dry. I keep mine in an unheated very well ventilated greenhouse over winter and they seem to survive, even during the really cold winters of a couple of years ago.

There are a fair number of different ones available these days too.

The yellowish one could be Spiraea Golden Princess.

If the stems are triangular in profile then it well could be Carex pendula which is an awful seed weed.

New beds and couch grass

Not easy, unless you can separate the couch and get weedkiller on it, without touching the plants. Otherwise, you have to do what we are doing at present. Grow the plants on in the pots until they are strong and healthy. then take them out of the pots and wash all the compost off the roots. Tease out the couch grass roots and repot the plants. Do this until there is no more couch appearing. Time consuming, but it works, eventually.
