Small yellow things growing on mulch?

Posted: 21/06/2015 at 11:24

Sounds like a fungi of some kind Chris but difficult without a pic - for me anyway!

Someone else might be along soon to help. 

Can you help me identify this plant/shrub

Welcome to you Craig. Hope you enjoy finding out about all the plants in your garden.

Nut's right - start a new thread and put a few pix on at a time of anything you're unsure of. Lots of highly knowledgeable, friendly people on here who will help you.

You're right WW. One of the lodges is about twenty feet from a great chasm of the river where the water just surges and foams round huge slabs of rock, and the birch trees and rowans are on the banks. You could never tire of that view from the windows

I bought a small plant last spring Katherine (about 12" in a 4 or 5" pot) - potted it into one of those deep plastic pots you see clems in, and then planted it out last autumn. It was well fed about a month ago and that's the result now. It's around 3 or 4 feet on both directions and covered in buds. 

asparagus or weed?

" crocus and opinion sets" 

I have enough 'opinions' of my own without growing any more sets of them ice....

Great bargains!

You could always buy one of the stalker's/estate worker cottages WW but you'd need a 4 wheel drive for the winter to get in and out when there's several feet of snow!  Oh - and it's a two hour drive north east from where I am! 

Thought for a moment it was the cat that was the planter....should have gone to Specsavers...

I just don't do nuffink WW.....

Glen Tilt is rather beautiful - nicer than the actual mountain which is a fairly dull, heather covered slope with a load of scree on top. But - the woodland on the way there is covered with wild garlic and cow parsley just now. There are oyster catchers, skylarks, sandpipers, wheatears, pipits and a river  full of huge rocks scoured by  the water tumbling down. Have I sold it to you?

Yes Katherine - I've always wanted it and never got round to it in any of my previous gardens. It's slightly redder than it appears in the pic - but it's full of velvety and luscious gorgeousness  

Flower or Weed?

I have some at the back corner of the garden but it's on the outside next to the road and amongst the pine tree and conifer etc so impossible to get at. On the plus side - it can't really get into the main part of the garden 

Keep an eye on the foxglove as paulk2 says or it could become a nuisance.

WW - a big stone urn/long planter and either alpines or a specimen shrub depending on which one it is. Or a timber equivalent.

Don't think I'll win the prize...

I'll have to go and sort myself out and go to the cemetery and catch up on h****work.  Legs/feet are sore (that's what I get for adding an extra 5 miles along the glen)  but how can you not when it looks like this
