Annoying tree thing ID please

Posted: 16/06/2014 at 13:59

It's good to finally find out what it is. Perhaps I'll move one to a better position and keep it and remove the rest. Thanks for all the help, it's really appreciated.

Cheers

James

Ah that is possible. There used to be a small greengage tree nearby which I took down some years ago as it split and never recovered. The tree is no longer there but I guess the suckers could now be self sustaining. There's also apple trees, do they have suckers?

Here's another picture I took earlier. The stems are a sort of russet colour. I can get another of the one in my hedge tomorrow. That one is about 12ft tall very spindly and does nothing but have foliage.

Thanks. I'm sure I've never seen any catkins on them but perhaps they never last that long in my garden lol.

Oh willow, never thought of that! Looked like a sort of apple leaf to me. I haven't sprayed it with anything, it is as it comes.

Hi folks,

I have this annoying tree/shrub that keeps popping up everywhere I don't know if it's seeding itself or sending out runners but whatever it's doing, it's boring, doesn't flower or fruit and pops up in the flower bed and in my hedges. Any ideas what it is?

Cheers

Nemesia Maritana hardiness?

Posted: 15/06/2014 at 13:58

Thanks for all the advice. They are lovely little plants and smell good so being a perennial is great news. I live in the south near the coast so the frosts aren't as harsh as other places but I think I'll move them into the greenhouse over winter just to be on the safe side. The soil is very sandy and free draining here so I guess they'll like that. As a bit of an experiment, I might get a couple more and plant them in the ground to see what happens to them when the frosts arrive. I suppose I could try and take a few cuttings as well. It's actually quite exciting getting to know a new plant.

Plant/Weed ID please

Thanks guys. Looks like that's what it is then. Well it looks colourful and it is in the wild garden so I might as well leave it be.

Thanks for the ID.

Nemesia Maritana hardiness?

Hi,

I bought some Nemesia Maritana (scented lady and sweet lady) at the local nursery when looking to get some container plants. The smell really attracted me to them but when I got home I couldn't find a lot online about the hardiness or whether they are annuals or perennials, the labels don't help much either. Can anyone enlighten me?

Cheers

James

Thanks for the reply. Well it looks similar but I think my plant looks taller and more leggy than those. Here's another pic of the whole thing. I'm really not sure.
