Two Unknown Bushes

Wegeila, possibly versicolor and are the bottom two the same plant? The left looks like Lonicera ntitida in its 'golden' form and the right looks like either Euonymus or even a Hebe.

As long as you avoid falling down the mole holes, you are welcome. Oh and bring your gardening gloves, there is a lot of work needing doing.

This is a pot of the Galanthus nivalis which inhabits our garden. We do not think it is straight nivalis as it seems to be sterile.

 And this is what they look like en masse

 There are more as well.

When is the best time to prune Group 3 clematis?

Just starting on ours, but that is because we have over 50 of them and it takes a while to get round to them all.

I do the most exposed ones first and they tend not to shoot for a while yet even when mild like this.

Trouble is there are about 22 species of Pericallis.

Lithium grease is what they use, so bought some.

Dug up one small clump last week, finally got round to doing something with them........over 100 bulbs.

I like the species rather than the multiplicity of forms. Things like G ikariae, and G woronovii and G elwesii. I would really like to get hold of some of the other species, but they get more and ore expensive, the rarer they are.

The gears are metal.

The grease needs to be a high temperature, resistant to centrifugal force type so that when hot it still coats the cogs and does not run down from the gears into the electric motor below.

Same colour as Swarfega, but definitely not.

We are going to a main dealer on Friday (coincidence) so I will ask there.
