Plant ID - post questions for GW Magazine

Posted: 11/08/2014 at 15:28

Hi, bought 2 clematis from Lidl  just labelled 'summer flowering'. The forum identified one as Hagley Hybrid but we couldn't id the other. It is not large flowered - flowers are approx 5cm across and it has been flowering since July.  I would be grateful if you could id it for me. Thanks

Diseased Elder Tree?? Can someone help?

Posted: 11/08/2014 at 10:39

Could we have a close up of some of the leaves? Any problems with the neighbours? Scratch back the bark  one of the naked branches with a finger nail to see if the branch is still alive.

Deadhead! Take off all the spent flowerheads and seedheads and then feed with a tomato feed.

Plants grow to reproduce - make seed. When they make seed they then have no reason to make more flowers. By removing dead flower heads and seed pods, this will stimulate the plants into making new flowers....deadhead regularly to keep the flowers coming and  the plants tidy.

Blueberry Tree

Hi, it will be a shrub not a tree. It will depend on a couple of things whether you put it in a pot or not - first your soil. Blueberries need an acid soil so if you can grow rhododendrons, acers or camellias successfully in your area the soil should be fine for it to go in the ground. What part of the country are you in?

It will need an open and sunny site that is sheltered from strong winds whether in a pot or not. There are easy enough to look after but will be more work in a pot - as they will dependon you for food and water. They have lovely autumn colour and are an attractive shrub.

Stipa Gigantea

I agree with Salino. I don't think it is a stipa at all, it's completely the wrong shape and the leaves too stiff. Could we have a close up of the leaves and centre of the plant?

Hi, What are the plants that you have planted and want to cut back - as you may have to do different things depending upon what you have planted.
