And ath-ell-eets.

Gardening apps?

There are some in development for wild plants, not sure about garden ones though. I think they could be quite limited, nothing matches the human eye/brain for pattern recognition!

Help ID a mystery plant please

Looks like a willow sapling to me. I would consider it a weed!

Newly emerging plants or weeds??

Posted: 23/04/2015 at 13:35

The first one could be Black Bryony, Tamus communis rather than bindweed. I agree that the second one is a tree seedling.

Identification wanted

Possibly Ipheion uniflorum? It's a bulb, coming in different pastel colours.

What's eating my primrose petals??!!

Rabbits did for the blue ones in my garden.

Woodland plant identification

Sorry folks, that's definitely a beech seedling. Often confused with Twayblade!

tulip bulbs

Tulip planting time is normally November, and they are flowering now. If these bulbs are old ones left over from last year, I think I would pot them up and if they produce leaves, feed them well to build up their strength for next year. However, if they are freshly lifted ones that have flowered this year, you should be able to store them in a cool shed or similar place until late autumn, then plant them.

Plant ID please

The 4th one is a rose, the others perhaps some kind of cherry?

Can someone identify this awful growth in my garden please?

You're right, we are! I tend to get a bit pernicketty when people throw around ambiguous common names, sorry about that. I hope you defeat the dreaded weed!
