Well it's not far from a bird feeder but G. Abassinica seems to have spear shaped leaves?

Hi folks,


Any ID on this interloper please? It seems to have shot up in the last few days.


Cheers

Musa Basjoo -plant out?

That's a bargain! Mine was £11.99. I'll have to keep my eye out for any reduced price items in the next few weeks.

Wow that's lovely! I'm trying to get a tropical theme going with the stanard plants like fatsia and cannas, etc. The banana will hopefully finish off the effect as long as I can keep it alive over the winter lol.

Thanks, I think I'll bring it in now as it's a bit of a chilly night here brrr!

Thanks fidget, I'll do that. Will it be happier in my conservatory (which is more like a living room with big patio doors and kept at room temperature) or my unheated greenhouse?

Hi folks,


I've just bought a Musa Basjoo Japanese Banana. I know it's probably not the right time of year to be getting one but it was a bit of an impulse buy. I've read it's hardy down to -10c but presumably that's a mature/established one. I'm on the south coast and it doesn't often get that cold in winter. Does anyone know whether I can plant it out now or would it be better to pot it up into a terracotta pot for now.


Cheers

ID on fragrant shrub please

Posted: 01/10/2016 at 00:57

Thanks for the ID, I've not heard of that one before. It's nice to have something smelly this time of year. I might get myself one for the front garden. Any idea if they can be kept small or it is just a matter of hacking it back every so often?


Cheers

ID on fragrant shrub please

Hi folks!


There's a very fragrant shrub at the local playground. It has been formed into a hedge by the council and doesn't look very interesting but it has a lovely scent. I noticed it the other day as I was cutting through the park. It has a lily type scent and has shiny leaves with raised specks on them. The flowers as you can see in the picture are small white bells and is flowering now.


Cheers

Who's appeared in the border this time?

Thanks. I have tree mallows growing in the back garden and it's not like them so I thought it might be a hollyhock or lavatera. Here's a pic of the buds.
