You have nothing to lose by trying.  I would put the cuttings in a pot of compost to root rather than water.  5 or 6 cuttings to a pot and then put inside a poly bag to keep them moist.

I have MOLES !!

Posted: 28/06/2013 at 14:39

They are very clever.  My garden floods to a depth of about a foot each winter, but 2 days after the water goes the molehills start to appear again.  So you can't even drown them.

Plant ID what are these plants?

The new plant could be a Virginia Creeper or a Boston Vine

I chose mine because the day I sign up to the Beeb board that is what my fork looked like and I could see out side the window.  No imagination

It could be the weather as mine are shorter than usual.  Have you fed them?  It might help

Magnolia Problem

Posted: 19/06/2013 at 13:32

Magnolias don't like being in exposed positions.  It's probably wind that has caused the brown leaf edges.  The leaves on my tree tend to start a yellow colour and then green up as they age. The wind could also be rocking the plant making it difficult for it to take root.

Identification help needed

I think it's oilseed rape, probably seed carried in by birds from local fields

What are these?

The common name for 1&3 is Torbay Palms as they can become very large.  I had one thta grew to about 4 metres before the top was killed off by the snow in 2009/10.  It regrew from the base.

You will find almost impossible to remove leaves until they are completely dead.  You could just cut the brown bits off if you wanted.  The flower stalks can also be cut down once they have flowered
