Plant identification

Posted: 01/07/2012 at 19:52

I agree

Can anyone identify this and tell me where I can buy it?

It is Bouganvillea Joolsg - they are mainly sold as houseplants/conservatory plants here - they are beautiful

Any one know what this is?

I have found this

It looks like the best thing to do is remove the growths and spray with a systemic insecticide to keep the plants clear of insects that may spread the problem.Sorry I can't be of more help Lyn

Our plant is a few years old but garden centres usually sell them when they are about 5' tall

I dread it when I see Barry going into the garden with his secateurs  He loves pruning and tying plants up even if they don't want to be - I  go round the garden with my scissors when he isn't looking  and cut some of the strings - the plants say thankyou for doing that  Don't tell him,anyone

I am 66 years old ,Barry is 70 - we have lived here for 25 years and when we moved in all that was in the garden was a very,very old Apple tree in the middle of a square of what could loosely be called a lawn

Our garden has evolved over the years and is now quite mature - there are still many parts that need work.We could be described as obsessive gardeners but I can live with that

A few years ago we started to open our garden for the NGS - we have missed a couple of years due to me having a very serious illness but are opening again this year
