Hi all

i have 3 plants I would like to identify, 2 of then came from an annual plant seed mix, the bright blue pansy type one and the one with almost spikey green bits like a fir tree and small white flowers. and the 3rd plant has not flowered yet but aparently it could be a Verbena? i planted it in spring but lost the label for it months ago.  Any help would be brilliant please.

Hi All

I just got some raised beds built for me in order to grow a few bits of beg, salad leaves, carrots, nothing too fancy.  They are approx 3 foot high and 4ft square.

They were built on a muddy bit of land and they have been 3/4 filled with excess soil from the garden and from compost when potting up plants.  The soil is very clumpy though so should I buy top soil to fill it to the top or is there something I could be doing to the soil as it is to break it down nice and fine?  This is the first time I have had raised beds or grown veg so any help or advice would be absolutely brilliant please.

Many Thanks in advance lovely garden peeps!

 Hi there, they are various sizes, all pretty small though, I just want something in them to add a bit of colour.  What about alpines or cacti or something?

Hi all

I have a pathway at the side of my house that is in shade nearly all of the day and is like a wind tunnel. To brighten it up a bit I want to fill approx 20-30 small terracotta pots that I have kicking about with anything that will last for a good few years in the harsh windy/shady spot. Can I please have lots of suggestions for small plants/shrubs/alpines, whatever may last in the tough conditions.  

Thank a lot in advance chaps.

These are about 3 foot at the mo, growing rapidly though, should I just get rid of them?  I don't want everything else in the border to suffer.

Plant ID please??

Thank you Dovefromabove, yes it does look very similar.  Does anyone agree this is what it is?  Should I remove them as there are quite a few and they are getting fairly big.

Plant ID please??
