Help identifying plants

Posted: 12/09/2013 at 16:03

Choisya is a nice plant, and has small white flowers 2-3 times during the year and smells like oranges, good for flower arranging too. Freegle is a good idea for the plants you don't want.

Alan I got given three different plants (birgitta, earliblue and bluecrop) by my inlaws and they started off in pots of ericaceous on the back step but for the last 2 years they have been in a raised ericaceous bed. We've had alot of berries this year, quite tasty. The shop bought ones tend to be tasteless.

Hi new to the forum and looking for design ideas

Don't forget penstemons, salvias, verbena bonariensis, foxgloves, scabious, geraniums, spirea and phlomis. Gaura and phlox are good too, and you can also try a small viburnum. The scent when its in flower is gorgeous, and the same goes for tree lillies. I agree with blairs that a matching border would look good.

WHAT is this plantor weed?? Can anyone help?

Violet. Did it have perfume? I have the native violet that opos up in different places in the garden and I have five different violet odorata which spreads abit but as its surrounded by other plants doesn't get the chance to go mad.

Where to purchase roses?

Bare root are cheaper, though its worth looking in your local garden centre every now and again in case they reduce the prices.

Anyone know what this is?

Yes leave it and it will do the job for you. You can then transplant to where you want it.
