Plant IDs Please

Posted: 28/03/2014 at 17:47

2 may be a Heuchera.

Ordinary Hedera helix but do be sure you really want it growing up your wall. It does cause damage, despite what some people may say, and provides a very convenient ladder on house walls for mice and other small animals (and spiders, and ants...I could go on and on!). It destroys dry-stone walls and ruins fences. It will grow out of the pot and take over the entire garden. Have I said enough?

Who's poo? (Hedgehog?)

Another vote for hedgehog. Rat looks like small torpedoes to me.

Aquilegia at the top, Arum maculatum in the middle, not sure which plant you mean at the bottom. I can see some Forsythia, some old stems of possibly Achillea, and taller old stems of perhaps Japanese anemone.

mystery plant id please

Definitely not Pasque Flower, which is hairy all over. This is an anemone, possibly Anemone  coronaria De Caen.

Yes, traps are the way to go. I had mice coming into my cold-frame and eating everything, I've caught 5 so far.

Identification required please

Have a look at Symphytum 'Hidcote Blue', it's a hybrid and looks like the OP's pics.

seedlings coming through at different rates - advice?

Posted: 21/03/2014 at 11:31

That's what I do. They don't last very long anyway so I regard them as disposable.

what on earth is this chive smelling plant, we have found it on the lawn??

Just mow them, they will soon give up.

Photinia leaf drop

Posted: 19/03/2014 at 17:43

Photinias do very well in my very alkaline soil, but it is well-drained. I agree that it may be wet conditions that are affecting your photinias. They do drop leaves at this time of year anyway, as Flowerchild says. The photos show a tree making lots of new growth, and it's a good shape, so I would leave it alone.
