Is this Japanese Knotweed

Posted: 21/06/2016 at 11:10

I don't think it's knot weed, knot weed has red stems and the leaves don't look quite right.

I am with fritillaries post I to think it's symphocarpus   ( snowberry )

symphocarpus does Have a dendancy to sucker and will pop up here and there, it's quite a nice shrub and has lovely berries later on.

I D please

That's right  🙋thanks so much. I knew the forum wouldn't let me down.

Tree ID please

I thought Cersis as well ,pretty sure not Prunus.

The lichen doesn't hurt the tree so is not detrimental.

I have had thease flowers in a bouquet and wondered what they are called, I just know someone on the forum will know.

Can anyone know or recognise the identity of this plant.

You can get a herbaceous clematis that doesn't climb, Arabella being one of them has Richard suggested.

Have a look on Alan Tichmarches site.

Such a handsome chap

Vine weevil eggs in bought pots please help

Posted: 13/06/2016 at 09:28

If there are still roots on the plants they might grow on, I would pot them up with fresh compost for a while and drench the soil with Provado vine weevil killer.

sorry I don't mean to advertise a particular brand but it's the only one I know which will do the job.
