Possible Sempervivum flower?

Posted: 06/07/2014 at 14:09

Definitely a sempervivum.  I think they'll all flower given the right conditions.  

Anyone knows what is this yellow-leaf plant?

Posted: 06/07/2014 at 14:07

Think I've found a picture in one of my houseplant books which has confirmed Nutcutlet's suggestion - there is a picture of a Codiaeum  'Madame Mayne' which is as near as dammit to Mel's photograph.  Sadly I can't find a picture online.

Silver Birch dropping yellow/black spotted leaves

Where I worked until recently we had several silver birches in the grounds and gardens.  Every summer some of the leaves would turn yellow and fall - our cars would be covered with them on wet and windy days - however the birches seemed perfectly healthy and have carried on doing it year after year.  I wouldn't be worried about it.  It may be the result of some fungal spores in the air, but they didn't seem to infect anything else around them.

Interesting visitor to the bird table this morning

That's exciting.

Definitely not a bullfinch - the nearest I've ever seen to your picture is a House finch from North Africa but the colour is too bright and the markings are too distinct for that.

 I'm pretty good on UK birds but that's not a native species.   I've looked on all the websites with finches from around the world and can't find it.  

Can you notify the RSPB here  http://www.rspb.org.uk/advice/watchingbirds/reporting.aspx

Wonderful!  Inula magnifica  http://www.bbc.co.uk/gardening/plants/plant_finder/plant_pages/419.shtml 

Why is this plant browning after a couple of days?

Posted: 06/07/2014 at 12:11

Possibly red spider mite?  They like hot dry conditions.

Please ID this plant
