Sticky buds

What are sticky buds? 

Plant or weed?

Posted: 19/04/2017 at 18:40

Maybe Prunella vulgaris,  they come in pink as well as the usual purple

Is there a weed killer specifically for daisies on lawns?

daisies on the lawn, lovely. 

Anyone identify this tree??

Paulownoia tomentosa, nice

Absolute beginner help

i is buddleia

2 looks like something that hasn't flowered yet rather than something that's gone over, still very green and upright

6 agree with Kitty, Euonymus.

Plant ID please?

Bala, when you try and decide between the Charlock and the Alyssum, look at the leaves as well as the flowers 

Help ID tree and shrub p​lease

the shrub could be a pittosprum

The tree looks OK for Sorbus aria, Whitebeam,  might be a fancy named one or the species

Advice for narcissi/daffodil bulbs needed

Not an expert here but this is how I see it

1 and 2. I'd keep them in the pots, or put into something a bit bigger, feed them and plant them out as they die down

3. I never deadhead anything but if you want to create a drift of wild daffs you'll need to let them seed. This only applies to the wild species. Cultivated daffs don't seed true

4. feeding time for bulbs is when they're in leaf. Then they build up for the next flowering. I'd only feed bulbs in pots or big fancy things (if I had any).  

Daffs don't flower for long in deep shade but they don't mind some. I had so go blind as over-grown hazel coppice made it very dark. 18months after re-coppicing they flowered again

Plant ID please?

the yellow one looks like Alyssum saxatilis, aka Aurinia saxatilis

The pretty leaves are cyclamen, probably Cyclamen hederifolium, they'll disappear soon til the flowers come in late summer

The last is a weed, one of the Speedwells

Can someone identify this yellow flower plant/shrub?

There are a few shrubs around that I really don't like and that's one of them
