If it's ragwort it's much smaller than I thought from the photo. Yellow daisy flowers, pretty but lethal. Another Google pic.

It didn't give a place for photobucket, only browse computer files.

Lovely Verdun. Wish they would enlarge.  Only just seen this post. How did I miss it? We've waited so long for these photos, but you did send some once before. We knew you were an expert.

What is this bee attracting plant?

It's a ceanothus, but can't tell you which one.

I've changed my picture before and now that my violas are over I wanted to change them for a rose, but I've done what it said to do and nothing happened. Does anyone know why? Can one do it using Photobucket?

powdery mildew?

Don't think it's as bad as that. Plant them in a different spot - crop rotation.

MORNING FORKERS

Morning all. Lovely day here. Feeling frustrated about pulled back muscle, although Doc has given me some good medication it's not up to gardening yet. Bother. (said Poo).

Made 4 jars of redcurrant jelly yesterday and froze mangetout peas.

Friend is coming round tonight for a natter. OH is away at his university old boys weekend.

I was wondering about acanthus, but it's hard to tell from the photo if the leaves are shiny enough or big enough. Here is a google pic.

Can you identify this plant and is it ill/deficient?

Posted: 04/07/2013 at 23:29

I think it looks hungry. Chalky soils are often iron deficient and general low in nutrients. A rose fertiliser with iron and magnesium should help. Could well be a magnolia, they prefer a slightly acid soil and chalky tends to be more alkali, so feeding should help.
