Unknown paeony

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.

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?

Advice for planting under a purple leafed plum tree

Posted: 30/08/2014 at 15:54

The Heucheras should do OK, also Pulmonaria. Your tree is very close to the fence, you do know it will get much, much bigger? I wouldn't put the Japanese anemone or the Alchemilla in such a small space, they are too rampant.

The top one is Creeping Buttercup, the white flower in the middle photo is Common Mouse-ear and the bottom one is White Clover.

It could be rats, but rabbits do this in my garden.

What is the name of this shrub?

That branch right at the bottom certainly looks like garden privet.

Pineapple weed

Mother-die is usually cow parsley, Anthriscus sylvestris. Like most umbellifers, I wouldn't eat it!

Pineapple weed is related to Chamomile and can be eaten, there are quite a few recipes out there.

That branch looks dead, I think I can see evidence of coral spot fungus which only attacks dead wood. I would prune out the affected branches and keep it well-watered in the hot weather.

What's in my garden?

Dryopteris filix-mas, a lovely fern. What a shame it's been pulled up! Incidently, Bracken is far from harmless - it is designated as an invasive species in the wild, and the spores can be carcinogenic if breathed in.
