Basil leaf damage

Posted: 07/06/2012 at 11:17

I have noticed in the past when growing basil, it does have a habit of going black and dying when grown outdoors. I only grow it in the greenhouse or on a hot sunny windowsill now - with better success !!

Help with identification please

The first and second picture looks like Lesser Celandine - by clicking on your photo, it enlarges the image dramatically.

Have you noticed any tuberous roots when you pull a clump up, by any chance ? And does it have a yellow flower ?

Last pic - looks like speedwell to me, also.

I think, pic 4 ( or summer fruiting bush, as you put it ) is a blackcurrant bush, I've been trying to think where I've seen the same shaped leaves before - I have a blackcurrant bush at the allotment and the leaves look very similar.

Pruning clematis

If you leave it unpruned it will develop stems that are woody, of which have no foliage or blooms. Not nice to look at, IMO.

Group 3  - should be pruned back severely every year in late winter, when they are completely dormant, to about 12 - 14 inches. Leave at least two pairs of buds on each stem of the plant. This group are very fast growers and usually reach they full height before each summer.

The one that you call a thistle, is I think, a Amberboa. Not a weed either

He's been at my allotment for a number of years now Bookertoo, even though I've always looked upon as a weed, I have never thought about getting the spade out to dig him up - strange !!

Perhaps, I've always known he was special.
