Lawn Problems

I'm wondering whether you had a lot of salt spray in the winds - certainly a problem around the East Anglian coast.

'Treated' beans and peas?

Tall plants for a north facing wall?

I think white foxgloves would love it there.  

We grow foxgloves, honeysuckle and some clematis and roses against a north facing fencne.

"Half the stems have snapped"  but half haven't - pot them up in fresh compost - they'll soon grow some more - honestly, in a week's time you'll hardly know it's happened 

Plant ID, please

Can we see the whole plant from the side please?

I've looked at Fool's parsley online and in my Keble Martin - doesn't look quite right - I've taken a close up of a leaf - what do you think?

 Although the main stem is cylindrical, the leaf stems have the groove on the upper surface like Cow parsley. 

Sorry, it's a bit dark - I didn't use flash in case the white paper flared.  If you want one with flash let me know.

Nut, I don't think we did - I've just been and picked a leaf and had a good sniff - nothing other than a very faint cow-parsley type smell.

Are they not rescuable?  If you plant them up again quickly they'll probably do as well as new ones.

Think the twiny one might be Clematis armandii? 


First one possibly weigela
