five plants id friend or foes?

Posted: 12/05/2015 at 17:46

That top one is looking like an anemone of some kind now. Still think the other one is a foxglove, time will tell!

Those blower/vacuum things do shred dry leaves pretty well, but I think you mean fresh green ones?

No 1 isn't woodruff, the leaves are the wrong shape. How big is it? Perhaps you could pull off a leaf, measure it and photograph it separately. It reminds me of some Corydalis..

No 4 is a foxglove, the leaves are variable.

Plant ID - Couple of Rogue Plants Inc Spanish/English Bluebell help

It's not possible to tell from the photo what species of bluebell that is - post again when the flowers are open, including a closeup of the flower spike. Also note the colour of the stamens. The leaves are not very broad so there's a good chance that they are in fact Hyacinthoides non-scripta, English bluebell. Spanish bluebells are fine in gardens anyway, unless you are going to dump them in the countryside or you live right next door to a bluebell wood.

Plant ID Please Unknown Aquilegia.

I get a lot like that, they have self-seeded all over the place. I pull out the small-flowered, muddy-coloured ones and keep growing fresh ones from bought seed.

Help with Id's please

The first one is a willow, I think.

Plant ID please

Why won't plants grow under my Holly tree?

Posted: 05/05/2015 at 18:54

The only thing that grows under my holly tree is ivy. Oh, and self-seeded elder. It's too painful to crawl about under there to remove them...

"Amazing" offer from Thompson Morgan to GW' viewers

They seem to have offers in several gardening magazines, and they always sound so attractive. Best to just boycott them, IMHO.
