Baby Oak Tree Inside

Posted: 16/02/2017 at 18:20

It's winter, oak leaves go brown for winter then fall off. If needs to be outside asap before the new leaves start growing.

Ladybirds are waking up

I would have put it outside, it's where they live. They can't hibernate  (or whatever they do in winter) in a warm house but are unlikely to find much to eat.

Friend or foe?

I think Philippa may have had the Indian one, and that's why I said the leaves looked different.  Hope she didn't eat it.


See original post

 My memory for these things is poor but I think I may have sent Philippa the seeds for that 


I doubt if she's eating it, I'm certainly not.

Moss removal? Hard surfaces AND grass

I love moss, so many different species. Interesting group. Worth studying

I've been growing what I thought was Phytolacca americana for about 20 years. Last year I realised it was  Phytolacca acinosa. 


can't remember where the seeds came from or I'd ask for my money back. Though I may have a better plant, much more upright.

Rejuvenating Overgrown Boxleaf Honeysuckle

Posted: 15/02/2017 at 21:08

Looks like Lonicera nitida. Never heard it called boxleaf honeysuckle but that describes it well. You can be brutal with these in my experience. OH cut one right back to nothing for a friend many years ago. The idea was to get rid of it but it grew back a treat

Any ideas what this plant is?

Yes, I gave up mixes. One of the problems is disturbing the slower (and probably nicer) seeds when pricking out the quick germinators

Any ideas what this plant is?

if it just appeared in a pot that should contain another, the most likely Geum is Geum urbanum

How to make a buddleia tree?

Posted: 15/02/2017 at 16:26

Buddleia and topiary? Hmmm


If you cut the ends off after flowering you will have sticks


Topiary is usually created from plants with insignificant flowers and small evergreen leaves.


But try it, you might achieve something better than that which I'm imagining

that's been cut back and is quite mature. It's splendid but probably still looks scruffy when past the best flowering.
