I've repeated Dove's alchemilla as I got distracted and stopped typing! So Dove got in first.

Shady spot..what to do?

Posted: 04/02/2015 at 10:09

Golden or variegated shrubs can be nice in shade, they shine out. I have a golden philadelphus in full shade from the house, also a clematis Jean Paul ii, hostas and heucheras.

I've had a look at the label on mine (had forgotten it's name!) and it looks the same as yours - Jasminum polyanthum.

Jasminum sambac is the one usually used for tea. Have a look on Google. Yours looks like the one often grown as a house plant, but sorry, I don't know about tea.

Pruning a grape

It's not too late. It's been a cold winter and grapes should be pruned before the sap rises or they will bleed sap. That usually happens from March, so early February should still be OK. The best time, though is December.

I found this site helpful as it takes you from the beginning with a young vine.

Poppy Identification

That is a variety of Papaver somniferum, the opium poppy, an annual. Patty's Plum is an oriental poppy with much more divided leaves and perennial.

I may have some DD, if they come up I'll dig some up for you. May need carrot cake though!
