Help identification for these plants please

Bad case of lollipopping instead of pruning.

Could you put a close up of each of the leaves. The shape of the bush is not true and does not help.

If you just want the foliage, a seed grown plant is fine. If you want lemons in this country, buy a grafted Eureka plant.

Pink Bidens?

top soil or compost?

Posted: 30/04/2017 at 18:08

top soil could be no better than what you already have.  Humus in the form of compost, well rotted FYM or composted fine bark or bracken will help any soil.
