Clematis problem with leaves

Posted: 12/07/2014 at 22:58

Hi Amabel, have you planted them  in the ground or in pots?

Pleased to have a new garden visitor.

Pansyface,sorry but I have to correct you -  it's the juvenilles that have the red cap and the male adults have red on the back of their necks.

Jack, it is a chick from this summer that is visiting you at the moment.

A bit more detail...Cistus purpureus, Geranium molle or dove's foot cranesbill (wild flower), Vinca minor.

Ivy! Around my tree

Cut the ivy at the base. The ivy attached to the tree will then die and will be easier to remove. Any regrowth from the base can be treated with glysophate - avaiable from most stores.

It's purple loosestrife - Lythrum salicaria

ID This Tree and Help Please

Looks like yew. If they were not planted that long ago, I would suspect lack of water as their root run is not established enough - you would need to keep them well watered over the summer and in dry periods.

Plant. ID please!

Definitely not a fremontodendron. Looks more similar to a camellia leaf. A picture of the actual shrub would help a lot.
