Fern ID please

Posted: 16/06/2016 at 17:10

Hi,


I've just come across a load of fly tipped plants down an alleyway. I rescued a couple of primulas and a heebie. There was also this potted fern. Can anyone ID it for me. If it's just a bracken fern, I'd better get rid of it but if it's something else, I'm sure I could find a home for it. The leaves are about 8-10 inches long.


Cheers


James

Thanks. I think it looks more like the ligularia than gunnera as the gunnera leaves look more frilly in the google images. 


Posy, I'm not sure where the picture's gone on your screen :-S maybe I'm such a bad photographer that it doesn't even appear on some screens lol.

Hi folks,


I've been trying to achieve a tropical jungly look in one part of my garden. I went to Longleat the other day and in the Jungle Kingdom section, I found myself looking at the plants as much as (more than?) the animals. As I was ticking off plants I'd already got, I noticed these ground cover foliage plants (the plate leaved ones in the foreground of the picture). Can anyone tell me what they are please as I think they would be great to fill in some spaces.


Cheers

Couple of plants to ID please

Thanks you two. Looks like Linaria does like to pop up in random places so I guess it self seeded. Oh well it can live there, I need some filler plants for the bed. I'm glad the other one is a fuchsia, it was a cutting from a very impressive plant. I can't remember what colouring the flowers were though, I'll just have to wait and find out lol.


Cheers

Hi,


I got a couple of plants I'd like IDs on if possible. The first 'may' be a cutting I took on holiday on the south coast. If it's what I'm hoping, it was from a large treelike fuchsia. The other one I think must have self seeded or from a wildflower mix.

My Mahonia has snapped :-(

Thanks Berghill! I was worried for a moment then. Hopefully it'll be all the better and stronger for it then.


Cheers

Hi folks,


I bought a mahonia last autumn and although it developed a touch of rust over winter, it's grown a couple of sets of new leaves and was looking very healthy - until this morning...


Last night it was very windy and all the new growth has snapped off and now only the old leaves from last year remain. As I'm not familiar with mahonias, what's the future for the plant? As new growth comes from the centre, will it grow any more or has it self pollarded as it were?


Cheers

Mystery Bulbs

They don't look like my Jerusalem Artichokes :-S

When I was pulling up my cucamelons they'd developed rhizomes so maybe something like that?

What tree is this?

Thanks everyone for IDing it for me. It's a lovely tree, it would be awful if it got the chalara infection! I might ask the owners for a cutting if I ever see them, I guess it can't hurt to have a backup if ever the worst happened to it.

Cheers

Thanks for the replies. I've got some better pics now which hopefully is easier to see. I can't see any berries on the tree at all so I'm confused as all the pics online of sorbus seem to have them.

Cheers

James
