slug clear liquid metaldehyde

It is sad susie. I'm sure there are other factors that affect bird numbers but the use of chemicals is one that we could sort out if the will was there.

You're lucky rosemummy. I haven't seen one yet. The sound of snail bashing was constant here a few years ago. It may not all be down to chemicals but the neighbouring farmer sprays something, somewhere most days

More help needed please . . . .

Phormium grows from seed Chrissie but it's a long time before it's like Pandas photo.The cultivars won't come true but everything comes from seed except sterile hybrids

I had an enormous Phormium tenax, one of the 2 very cold winters was too much for it and it died in a very rotten smelly way. I may start another one if I can think of somewhere to put it

What is this?

Is Pentas hardy? Mich's pic looks like something well established in the garden.

I doesn't look like the right leaves to me though

Help please . . . .

Hidcote, yes, that's a patulum I think. I've manage to kill 2 of those over the years and I thought they were supposed to be easy going

More help needed please . . . .

astrantia major

Astrantias are pretty tough and cope with whatever weather they get. If it's not performing I'd scrap it

Help please . . . .

Snoodle, I think you were right to leave off the perforatum

That's one of the shrubby ones in the pic H patulum maybe. Perforatum is of a lighter stature, a herbaceous perennial

Watercress? Yes!

I forgot to say that the American land cress doesn't need any standing or running water , 

 

That's because it's not watercress Rb
