HELLO FORKERS April 2016 Edition

Hosta ask the farmers advice - men like being asked for advice I've found. They often rise to a challenge.
If you try to do it yourself I will be very cross indeed!

Plant ID - Rhubarb?

Posted: 24/04/2016 at 23:09
Not rhubarb definitely. Possibly a leaf beet or chard that is running to seed.
There is a variety of chard that is sometimes known as rhubarb chard because it can have red stems. This might have caused some confusion possibly?

Snowy mespilus

Amelanchier (aka Snowy mespilus) is a small multi-stemmed tree - I don't think it would look good cut back that hard.  Now that you've cut back the shrubs around it I think the Amelanchier may well develop more shoots and grow in a more balanced shape.

Maybe they're in the hidden depths at the moment?

Or do you have newts (or rather does your pond have newts)?  They eat tadpoles.

Please do you know what this bush might be?

Maybe in a sheltered urban spot - and lots of plants went on a long while last autumn ...?

Are there any fish in your pond?  They eat frogspawn and tadpoles.

Please do you know what this bush might be?

I used to grow Rock soapwort and I'm pretty sure it's not that - but I have no other suggestions
