Viburnum in flower

Posted: Today at 06:51

I have got two viburnum that are currently in full flower. I thought they were Tinus but I can't find any info that suggests there is a variety of Tinus that flowers late summer. Is it confused or do I have a viburnum that is not Tinus? Pics to follow later if this helps.

Thanks guys. Done some searching on Thalictrum and that's spot on.

Many thanks

These pics show a plant growing up through my zebra grass. The second pic is a spent flower stem. Any ideas what it is? Pic 3 looks like the same plant but in a different border, bigger leaves though. It spreads low across the ground but works its way up through other plants.

I have three of these that have as good as done their job flower wise this year. They are well established but get long with bare woody centres..

Having done some reading it seems that hard pruning should be ok but it is best done in April. I am an impatient gardener when it comes to things looking messy and am keen to take some frustration out on them now.

Has anyone given them a good seeing to at this time of year without issue or do I need to close my eyes when I walk passed them and wait until April?

Yellow seems to be a favourite colour for some tiny (about 2mm in length) beetle looking things. The are on bracyglottis, day lily and even the yellow middle of my white leucanthemum (apologies for any mis-spellings). They don't look like they are doing any damage, yet anyway, but there are loads of them.

Any ideas what they are and will they become a problem?




What is eating my foxglove?

Is this a slugs calling card? What looks like poo just above a leaf joint?

Found a third that has been got. It is near to the other two.. This one is a self seeded one in my bin store so it will be protected from pigeons. Something crawly is looking the favourite. Off out now so will hunt from caterpillars etc later.

I am too urban for rabbits but there are plenty of wood pigeons. 

What I find strange is that it is only the foxglove that has been attacked.
