tulips naturally grow in rocky  soil that gets baked in the sun. I see no problem. give it a go.

Curry leaf tree dies

Are you bringing them back in soil with roots, or as cuttings? Cuttings need to be shaded until they have formed roots. Bringing in plants in soil could bring all sorts of diseases into the country.

Plant identification please

The blue one has flowers like a lithodora or lithospermum, but the leaves don't look right.

The builders bags that are approx 1 m cube hold a tonne of gravel etc. I would consider 4 cubic metres to be 4 tonnes.

Identify this beautiful plant

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

Looks like a privet flower bud.

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.
