Help! How can we use this yard?

Posted: 16/01/2015 at 23:39

Which way is your garden facing and where and when do you get the sun - on all of it or just part of it?

Can anyone identify this weed?

Could be a bramble or a japanese anemone...or something else!

Hedgehog Rescue

Posted: 09/01/2015 at 19:51

I am still feeding our hedgehogs here in Greater London/Essex. Food doesn't go for a few days sometimes and then is taken. Haven't seen one in the flesh for a while but they do leave 'calling cards' so I know that it is a hedgehog eating the food.  

Can anyone identify my new fungus?

How about a photo Ann?

White Beam problems

Posted: 27/12/2014 at 22:12

My white beam's leaves are exactly the same this year. It's leaves are still hanging on in there. However it has produced berries for the first time in several years. I'm not worried about it, I think it will be fine next year. I believe like the others the dry warm weather in the autumn has caused the problem.

Plants for lightweight arch

Posted: 19/11/2014 at 22:57

Philippa smith2, my hop not only flowers but self seeds - usually in my veg patch. The golden form I have read is not  supposed to come true from seed but mine does! I have given several away to friends.

Annietts, I also have a David Austin rose on an arch - it's almost thornless and well behaved. Not the best of names, it is called Mortimer Sackler but is a lovely rose. I've seen it grown up an obelisk at RHS Hyde Hall, a good endorsement!

Talkback: Trees for small gardens revisited

I love my Cornus kousa when it flowers,  the strawberry like  fruits disappoint me as they are few and far between but it is just colouring up beautifully for autumn.

Some camellias flower at this time of year. November through to spring is flowering time dependent on the variety.
