Chartreuse plant

Doesn't look like a Tanacetum to me.

Heather looks like it's dying, not sure what to do!

Whilst I hate to generalise or cast aspersions on anyone - most florists' expertise is in plants that have no roots

Snap!  Hosta

I've no idea what training the florist had, but heathers won't be happy indoors!    It's a plant which is happiest on bleak moorlands.


Also, it looks to me as if your plants are so dry that the compost has shrunk - I'd put them in a bucket of water for a couple of hours and let them soak up some water, then allow them to drain and plant them outside - either in bigger pots (in a mixture of half and half John Innes No 3 loam-based compost and the Multi-purpose compost - preferably peat-based) or in the ground.

We picked the very first of our four pears earlier in the week and had it with our breakfast this morning - probably needed a little more ripening, but delicious nevertheless

Is the stem square in cross-section?


It looks like one of the many varieties of mint - some of which are possibly in the secret recipe for the drink Chartreuse.


What does it smell of?

Could have been a different type of ladybird - there's all sorts - just a few here ...
