Lovely tree

Posted: Today at 18:59

Could be Quercus rubra, Red Oak, which is a lovely bushy tree that sometimes colours well in autumn. Definitely not Liriodendron, I'm afraid.

Does anyone know what this is?

I'm pretty sure it is Honesty, I've got lots looking just like that in my garden.

Please help me identify these 3 plants???

I wonder if the white one is some kind of Phlox? The leaves are very fine, not seen one quite like this before.

Belfast sinks and their true value?

I'm so lucky, these were here when I bought the house.

 I've seen them go for up to £100, depending on size.

Plant (weed) identification 2

Yes, ivy-leaved speedwell. It's going to seed so get it out now!

The first photo is an umbellifer, as Bob says, but not one of the common wild ones. I think it's Ammi majus, which is sold as an annual garden plant.

Td immunisations...

It's my understanding that you don't need tetanus boosters if you had a course as a child or several throughout your life. You might be given one if you have an accident, though.

diatomeacous earth??

The Natural History Museum has some interesting information about spider bites, it might be worth sending off a specimen to confirm your identification. http://www.nhm.ac.uk/nature-online/life/insects-spiders/identification-guides-and-keys/spider-bites/index.html

 

Problems With Honeysuckle - Yellow/brown leaves

Posted: 10/09/2014 at 12:04

One of mine is doing the same thing, and looking closely at the leaves I can see that there are signs of mildew. However, there are plenty of leaf buds so I am expecting the plant to make a full recovery. As Dove says, Honeysuckle is generally a survivor!

Still a mystery then!

Yes, I looked at that but it has dark red blotches at the base of the petals, and mine is pure white. It might be P. obovata var. alba. I think I was given it as P. emodii, but it doesn't look like that either. It needs moving to a less shady position, it's struggling a bit where it is.
