What tree is this?

Posted: 23/10/2015 at 15:32

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

I'll have a look at sorbus and see if it looks similar, thanks I'll try and get some better pics tomorrow. I don't think it's that easy to see from the ones I got.

Cheers

I'm not sure. There were a lot of bees up it earlier in the year but they may have just had a nest up there.

Hi folks,

Any idea what this tree is? It's got a lovely ferny willowy look and has just gone an amazing red colour. It has long willow like leaves but the leaves are jagged. Any ideas?

Cheers

What's growing by the fence?

Hi folks,

I've got a plant growing by my fence and can't remember if I planted it or it's found it's own way there. Any ideas what it is?

Cheers

Overwintering semi-tropicals

Thanks fidgetbones. I was wondering if they wouldn't have time to establish before the real cold sets in. Do you think they'd be ok in an unheated greenhouse with some fleece round them?

Cheers

Overwintering semi-tropicals

Posted: 16/10/2015 at 20:43
Hi folks,

I have a question about overwintering semi-tropicals. I've cleared an area of my garden ready to turn into a sort of 'tropical/jungly' garden and I've bought a few plants to start off (Fatsia Japonica Spider's Web, Ginger Lily (Hedychium Gardnerianum 'Tara'), Canna Generalis, Canna Tropicana Durban and a Sago Palm). I live about a mile from the south coast in Christchurch, Dorset and was wondering if it's safe to put them in the ground now. I have a neighbour who appears to leave her Cannas out over winter. I've got my plants in the greenhouse at the moment, the cannas are in flower and all have healthy foliage. Does anyone have any experience with these?

Cheers

James


 

Cutting ID please

Oh no! That sounds awful! Thanks for warning me. I've already got horsetails and ground elder to contend with, the last thing I need is another one joining the fight. I'm afraid little plant it's the bin for you.

Cheers

Hi folks,

Might be a big ask but can anyone identify this cutting? I think it's from something I found on holiday in the Isle of Wight earlier in the year but I cannot for the life of me remember what. It's taken well and is even flowering.

Cheers

James
