Plant (weed) identification 2

Posted: Yesterday at 14:06

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!

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.

 Had to reduce the size, so not so clear.

Nut, it was a short specific name but I just can't remember it. Will have to go through lists!

Can anyone identify this lovely paeony in my garden? The label is long gone. It's a species, not a hybrid, it flowers in April and has amazing seed pods. For some reason, I ca,t post the photo of the seed pods at the moment, I'll try again later.

What pollinates Molly the Witch

Mine turned brown as well, it does die back fairly early each year so perhaps it's just because of the early start this year?
