Weed or boarder plant

Posted: 11/06/2014 at 19:30

The plant twining itself around the stem is convolulus - weed which strangles other plants and is hard to kill !!

Can't id the other one ( I'm sure someone else will) but it looks like a weed too.

Mystery plant growing among strawberries

Hi, it looks like marjoram. Rub the leaves and see if there is a smell. Great herb and pollinaters love it.

Pumpkin Magic

I would be inclined not to stake it but let it travel over the ground. It will take up alot of room but your pumpkins will be well supported on the ground and you can place straw underneath as they grow to keep them clean.

Viburnum beetle, only eats viburnum so won't pose any threat to your plants unless  - they are viburnums! Google it and take a  look. 


Too late to prune Buddleja?

Posted: 01/06/2014 at 11:16

Don't prune it right back but take it back a reasonable amount to suit your needs - cutting just above side shoots. You could leave  longer branches at the back of the bush which are (hopefully) not causing a problem so you get a layered effect. The shrub will probably flower later or you will get staggered and therefore a longer flowering period if you don't cut back all the stems. Hope this makes sense...
