horrible little fox

Posted: 26/07/2016 at 19:24

I'm saddened by the fear of the natural world.

It's not your fault Kev, the popular press love a good scare story. We don't really have dangerous animals in the UK but one incident makes a good story and takes precedence over real life.

Growing honeysuckle from seed?

easy in all I've tried but the cultivars (and most are cultivars) won't come reliably true.

What is this? Can I cut it back?

Brussels Sprouts are a type of cabbage

Unidentified water plant

Watercress is Nasturtium officinale, it's a Brassica

But nasturtiums are Tropaeolum major, Tropaeolaceae family

(just to confuse things a little more)

What is the name of this plant

that could be Nandina domestica but I've never seen one quite as yellow as that. It may be suffering from malnutrition.

pot it on.

I think i may have a major problem: rust?

4 plants in four different families is equally unlikely for rust. I have many plants with rust but all except one are Malvaceae.

and it doesn't look like rust.

Physical damage would be my guess.

From bad to worse

not being hardy does not stop a plant being perennial. Protect it in winter and it's perennial. Lots of 'annual bedding' is tender perennials.
