Weeds, weeds, everywhere !

Posted: 10/09/2014 at 15:46

I don't know what the central plant in your 1st picture is, but I can see nettles and creeping buttercup (weeds) and possibly a leaf of a sedum. In the 2nd pic the plant with pink bobbles is a weed. 3rd pic I'm not sure looks like a sow thistle at the top but not at the bottom. 4th pic I think is a Geum, surrounded by rose bay willow herb, and more creeping buttercup. Also some Aquilegia seedlings I think

Front lawn ideas

Having a terraced border with a 2 foot drop doesn't stop leaflet droppers and other people walking across my front garden. I'd make it as difficult as possible for anyone to step over it

I know, I've been looking at it a lot, I'm going to Harrogate flower show on Friday and they are going to be there. I hope they have some of the ones I like.

Sour Apple Tree

Are they small like a crab apple tree? Or some varieties of apples need to be stored for a couple of months before eating

Problem with rose flower

Posted: 09/09/2014 at 16:29

Sometimes when a flower gets wet from lots of rain the outer petals can then dry out and become crispy stopping the flower from opening properly. If this is it you can remove the crispy outer petals and it should then open up

Sieving soil - compaction?

Posted: 09/09/2014 at 10:04

You can use the roots you sieve out to make something similar to a comfrey brew. Soak them in water until they become a stinky horrible sludge with all the roots rotted down so they can't regrow. These can then filtered out and put onto your compost heap, the liquid can be diluted and used as a plant food.

plant feed cherry laurel

Cherry laurels grow in alkaline to acidic soils so I would just use the chicken manure pellets

Weed or honeysuckle please!

Looks like my pink flowered jasmine too, the flowers are tiny and quite pathetic, I'm going to get rid of it. I've taken cuttings off my mother-in-law's 'Clotted Cream' Jasmine to replace it
