I think Mark499 may be right. It looks like a verbena to me too.

Vibernum Disease

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...

Bindweed! Can it be battled organically?

Posted: 30/05/2014 at 21:38

Where you see the bindweed growing, give it a cane to grow up - that way you can see where it originated from and it doesn't spread itself out. When you have got good top growth, place a container over the top of the cane and spray glysophate into it eg a 4 pint plastic milk bottle (with its bottom cut out and  its top cut off    enough to leave you the handle to hold and allow the spray to enter) Hope I've explained this well enough...I'll see if I can find a picture!

Doing this way none of the weedkiller can drift onto surrounding plants and you can zap the bindweed effectively.

Found the top half....you just need to cut out the bottom!! Hope this helps
