Any plant ideas please...

Is it not deep enough for honeysuckle? I think a bit of ignorance goes a long way, I've never known where I'm not supposed to plant it and it seems to grow usually.

I'm in the same situation. Mine was planted new last year. I've been hoping its just getting established.

The pic you posted at 19.58 looks like snowberry see . I have inherited some and it seems pretty inclined to grow new ones. I've just taken out a load but kept one for the winter berries.

I have also had far more hypericum than I wanted.  I've got rid of most of the ones I don't want, but I have one I want to keep but contain. I can't decide when to cut it back - right now there are flower buds just preparing to break, then berries that last all winter. Do I 

just chop them anytime?

What is this?

That's a welcome question. I have some of that and because its quite pretty and looks quite delicate I'd been tending it. And there's now more of it. I get the picture and will take the advice you've offered Yvonne and get brutal with it. Useful forum.

Sadly this was only its second year. I shall have to see it as an opportunity to try something else.

Hmm, it is damp here and I've maybe crowded the plant a bit. I guess if a pant isn't right for a place it lets you know.

Oh no! Please don't spare my feelings flowering rose. I'll take a look at the web link and hope for the best.  Thanks for the identification and advice.

Thanks for all that advice. I hadn't thought of the evergreen point. Pleased to hear good reports of the planters too.  I will definitely underplant, just a bit worried I might over do the plant to soil ratio.


And only just caught my spell checker trying to insert underpants into my question!
