Strange plant!

Posted: 08/09/2017 at 08:03

I've got a plant like this a neighbour gave it to me a few years ago, very late flowering not happened yet but shouldn't be too much longer. It comes out in bright yellow flowers and i think it is either a heliathemum or a doronacum, not sure how tall the latter one gets.

Identify please

It looks like a white hibiscus, lovely.

Help with identification please!

I read somewhere the light levels will affect the colour, 

if we have a hard winter you could loose them remember to take cuttings for next year, I've just done mine and if you don't need them you've got some to give to friends.

Light Deterrent for Badgers, Deer, Foxes & Rabbits

We have a problem with badgers and we have got a light working on a sensor and no it doesn't deter the Badgers I sometimes think they would say thank you if they could for giving them a light to show them the way.
