What is my plant and can it be saved?

Posted: 13/05/2015 at 17:28

I'd give it a good hair cut and get rid of the straggly brown bits. Cut it back to the new fresh growth. They are perennial so should pull through

Looks a bit like penstemons to me. If there's new growth there is hope

Took cuttings for the first time, last year  I'm sort of addicted to it now. Don't know if I need any more but I'm sure they will find a home somewhere

One of my Bowles Mauve, is very bushy and as yet doesn't have any flowering stems. Looks like it would be very propagation material, I seem to remember doing this later this year and maybe used a plastic bag over them.

The cuttings will live in a plastic greenhouse which is doing it's job well, but can get a lot of condensation. Is giving the bags a miss a good idea?

Thanks

The 2nd one is creeping buttercup, very invasive weed, I'd get rid of that.

Sorry LenaN, just seen your reply. Yes I would have thought it would be ok, it might start growing faster. It is small so a sheltered spot away from the worst of the rain and wind until it gets bigger and stronger. Just watch out for slugs and snails

Maybe a local conservation/wildlife charity. Might be worth contacting local hospitals or charities
