Identifying plants in a new garden

Posted: 20/04/2016 at 20:17

Plant 5 is Spirea - Bridal Wreath probably. No 2 looks like a Spirea as well, but it's a bit blurry so tricky to be sure. Looks like it's growing habit though 

No 4  (yellow one)  - looks like Forsythia but I can't see it very clearly either

I think your tree is Amelanchier by the look of it

The brown woody bits are the roots and the longer white pieces are the new shoots. Plant just deeply enough so that those white shoots are at soil level and you should be fine

philippa - I'm terribly militant. In fact, I might get so worked up that I will possibly tut loudly at the news...

is this grass struggling?

Hard though isn't it, that waiting lark?  

Fungi on lawn ?

I've forgotten it's name John, but it's common in compacted poor soil - especially if it's shady. Perfect conditions for it.

Aerating and feeding the grass, and generally giving it some good care and attention will help
