Hydrangea Leaf Issues

Have you got that inside, it looks like the sun has scorched it, if in, it's got to go out very quickly, not in the sun, they do better in the shade. 

If the roots haven dried out you can cut the tatty bits off and it will shoot out again.

Is this Ground Elder?

Looks like wild raspberry, Ground Elder would be growing up into the hedging like that.

Coreopsis pest problem and what to do about it

Slugs love those and Echinacea, and lupins and .....😱 you could try putting just two grains of slug pellets on each plant, you may find the slime trail then. 

Can you identify this?

I also have it in my 'lawn' but I love it!  To each his/her own, I guess!  My garden is of the cottage/wildlife variety, though ( for which read 'scruffy and unkempt! ) so it doesn't matter!

 Sounds like my garden, I have huge areas of stinging nettles and brambles I'm never going to get round to taming, I call them my wildlife areas.

Tuberous Begonia Help Needed

Posted: 24/04/2017 at 00:31

Did you plant them with the tuber just sitting on top of the compost, then they are best watered from the bottom, the corm  likes to stay dry.

That's a Camelia, mine is just about the same as yours, they don't do well in my garden, I think it's too damp for them here, I've dug a couple out, the white ones are even worse for buds rotting before they are even properly open.

 I think everyone on this site has used this, does anyone know of anybody dying because of it, I don't, my parents lived to 91 dad always used it.

If you look on the label it will tell you how much to mix into a watering can full of water, divide that by 4 and add water accordingly, you don't have to make up the whole 2 gallons..
