That's probably it, funny angle to see it from, no idea of height.

That's not old, do you think it's been interfered with?

20 years ago all the 'dead-man handles' etc would have been legal requirements for a self-propelled mower.

I just had a google to find that it is self propelled, not familiar with that one

Why don't I remember what plants I have?

The salvia looks like S. patens which I have had survive winters.

Of the grasses, the second is S.tenuissima.

I can't see the first clearly. Possibly S.pennata but doesn't look pale enough

Never done it but might need them fresh rather than dead-headed?

Talkback: Reversion

I think your thread title is misleading Richard. I see you've had lots of views but no help. I haven't a clue about oleanders so can't help there. This is not reversion. Reversion is when a fancy cultivated plant reverts (ie goes back) to its original form.

Try a title like 'Buds and leaves shrivelling on oleander' you may get more help

What did you all feed your daffodils?

It depends on your gardening style doesn't it/I don't want to feed and jhave huge flowers, I have a cross between a garden and a nature reserve. I like species plants above improved cultivars and varieties

Nightshade ID?

5 foot tall on thin woody stems

Solanum dulcamara, should have a somewhat musty smell when you damage the stems.

Atropa belladonna flowers aren't like that either, they're more like scopolia flowers in shape, not open stars with the sticking out bit in the middle.

Having said that I think some people use deadly nightshade as the common name for S. dulcamara (and probably ll the other nightshades as well.

Atropa bella-donna is the one that's used for dilating pupils and killing people. S. dulcamara is poisonous but not so much
