I saw the film on the tv last week. Now I know where hubby gets his "Feed me, feed me NOW" from.

Identify this beautiful plant

Posted: 07/09/2016 at 22:56

I bought one last year in Lidl. I repotted it and it went crackers.  It spent the winter in my mums conservatory, then got chopped, and is currently on a 4 ft pyramid. Not bad for 4.99

Can anyone tell me what this plant is?

Looks like Datura stramonium aka Jimson weed or thornapple or even Devils trumpet.

 The seeds are highly poisonous.

Plant identification No. 2 please

Dying brugmansia leaves

Brugmansia do that. It is exacerbated by spider mite, if your plants are in a dry spot.

Is anyone else planning their spring tulip displays yet?

I have to say that I like bright clear colours in Spring. I had some Purple tulips as part of an offer a couple of years ago. In dark dreary days, they got lost. A bright yellow or red or orange is much more cheerful.

so what is it? a deterrent or a killer?

I like my worms.

Polytunnel irrigation.

The hozelock micro irrigation system has been reduced at Wyevale. My mum has used one of these for years for the greenhouse tomatoes, and the multiple hanging baskets around the place. Her tunnels are considerably shorter than yours but the side of the bungalow is quite long, around 50ft, so the longest length goes around 70 ft I think.

Has anyone used Thomson and Morgan for shrubs? Would you recommend?

I had a shrub sent as part of an offer. It was poorly packaged,looked like it had been run over, didn't survive, and I got a refund from customer services.
