Identify and advice on shrubs

Posted: 14/04/2017 at 20:19

Can't see the St John's Wort clearly and now all hypericums seem to be called SJ'sW I don't know what it is. Many are best pruned to the ground either all the stems or some of them. Otherwise you end up with a totally shapeless shrub.

Laurel leaves are always shredded here. Along with everything else. 

Bolting ?

pinching is done with fingers, cutting with secateurs. It will flower til it stops. Depends on weather

What is this please???

the roots are corms and you need to get every little bit to remove it. But if you get the obvious ones you can lift the rest in future years

It's best to start as soon as they appear, the top is more firmly attached to the corm then. Later on it's too easy to leave the corm behind and just get the leaves

Bolting ?

It's growing, not bolting. It's what shrubs do if they're happy so yours must be happy. Don't water it more, it's a shrub of dry, sunny  places. Don't put it in the shade. You can leave it alone or cut some off, the plant won't mind which.
