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.

Plant ID's please

No. 2 is a creeping buttercup. I agree with Nut about the anemone in the first pic.

Dahlia bulbs and tubers

Dahlias aren't usually hardy so many people lift them every year and store in a frost-free place. This would disturb your bulbs, so probably not the best situation for them.

what is...

Mine has trellis on 2 sides (the visible ones) and there's winter jasmine, honeysuckle and variegated ivy growing up it. It's completely hidden, the oil man has to ask if he hasn't been before! I do have to keep the top clear, the ivy has a habit of growing over the filling hatch so it gets a haircut twice a year. I cut back the winter jasmine after flowering.

The second one is red dead nettle, Lamium purpureum, and the third is bramble, Rubus fruticosus. I'm not sure about the first pic, I thought it was groundsel from the small photo but it clearly isn't on enlargement.

Yes, agree with arabis.

Who ate the lupins???

Thanks all, I think it was the mice. Absolutely no sign of slugs or snails, I've had a good look in the pots.

Holly hedge from cuttings

I used to find hundreds of holly seedlings near my mature female holly, I think these would be easier to use for a hedge - assuming you have an obliging tree nearby.

I-D please.

Your plant with purple flowers and whorls of leaves might be purple toadflax, Linaria purpurea. The pink version is variety 'Canon Went'.
