Help with my Viburnum

Posted: 12/05/2014 at 07:15

That looks a bit drastic!!!

Are there any signs of damage to the trunk, what about the plants around it?  Are they ok?

Good morning Chicky 

Yes, good luck to all exam takers and their families ((hugs))

Aquilegia photo album

Posted: 12/05/2014 at 06:44

  A. vulg. 'Winkey' blue and white

 These were labelled as A alpina, but I thought alpina were shorter than this

 A self-sown one  of many that appeared from out of nowhere before I planted any aquilegias in this garden -  the owner before last must have had aquilegias  - there are some other colours but they're not open yet, and neither are the Touchwoods.

Good morning all - more rain overnight - it's dry now but doesn't look as if it's going to stay like it - but at least the wind has dropped.  

foxglove or something else ?

Mad veg idea needed for small terrace house front garden

Posted: 11/05/2014 at 21:19

Our last place was a Victorian terrace with a small square front garden - we had a small Victoria plum in the middle and it was surrounded by a mixture of wallflowers, forgetmenots, tulips and broadbeans - lovely 

foxglove or something else ?

Foxglove   I

It'll probably have quite deep coloured flowers.

Suckers or good new shoots.

I think they're good new shoots - David Austin roses often throw up vigorous shoots from below the soil surface.

Someone on here removed some then contacted the David Austin office and was told they would have been good new shoots

Mrs Garden - field mice are vegetarians - they definitely won't want to nibble you 

Verdun, it has to be the salvia 

Clari - hope your headache is better now

Chicklet should have cake - I'm sure it's good for exams 

Fg - saved you a piece - you can have it when you wake up 


and ((hugs)) for anyone I've missed out 

Hope Mike's not feeling too anxious and is able to get a decent night's sleep....
