Do ALL tall(ish) plants need supporting?

No but a lot do

Chlorotic leaves

Likely to be down to the wet weather then. Last year we were drowning. This year everyone else gets rain and it misses us

Ceanothus for bees/butterflies?

Posted: 31/05/2015 at 19:01

Yes, clk I shall make an effort to preserve mine now, half has died, so I've chopped it off. It may be the end, there is honey fungus in that part of the garden. I'll get another for somewhere else

Wildlife Pond Advice...?

Posted: 31/05/2015 at 18:56

Lysimachia nummularia is another good at the edge of a pond plant. Ragged robin as well. It's nice to have a few uprights like irises but the native Iris pseudocorus is too much for a small pond and I'd go for something not native but better behaved.

There are no strict rules, different creatures inhabit different types of pond. Sun shade, shallow, deep, wherever you find a pond, something will be using it. 

I've never seen a chamomile lawn that look great but maybe yours would be the first. But think about wildlife pond, is a chamomile lawn something that sits easily beside that?

Chlorotic leaves

I had all that last year Berghill, they all seem OK this year so far. Even weeds looked chlorotic.

I didn't find a cause. I think we may have had a discussion on the forum but to no conclusion

Is this plant safe?

I don't think the poisons jumps out at you. Half the garden is poisonous.

Plant ID please

Bellis perennis, it grows in your lawn (mine anyway) this is a cultivated version which will eventually seed back to what grows in the lawn

Good question, my cutting is usually part of the early spring work because then I can see if there are any dead branches after winter. That doesn't mean it's the best way. I make it up as I go along and most things survive

Name these plants please

Posted: 31/05/2015 at 14:03

I think the first is a veronica of some sort.

The 4th is Houttuynia cordata 'Chamaeleon'

The last I think is a saxifrage, maybe the one with the white flowers as well, I don't think the leaves should be buried like that.

Name this flower!

I don't think the lack of yellow would worry the bees.
