Help ID tree and shrub p​lease

Posted: 19/04/2017 at 13:36

the shrub could be a pittosprum

The tree looks OK for Sorbus aria, Whitebeam,  might be a fancy named one or the species

Advice for narcissi/daffodil bulbs needed

Not an expert here but this is how I see it

1 and 2. I'd keep them in the pots, or put into something a bit bigger, feed them and plant them out as they die down

3. I never deadhead anything but if you want to create a drift of wild daffs you'll need to let them seed. This only applies to the wild species. Cultivated daffs don't seed true

4. feeding time for bulbs is when they're in leaf. Then they build up for the next flowering. I'd only feed bulbs in pots or big fancy things (if I had any).  

Daffs don't flower for long in deep shade but they don't mind some. I had so go blind as over-grown hazel coppice made it very dark. 18months after re-coppicing they flowered again

Plant ID please?

the yellow one looks like Alyssum saxatilis, aka Aurinia saxatilis

The pretty leaves are cyclamen, probably Cyclamen hederifolium, they'll disappear soon til the flowers come in late summer

The last is a weed, one of the Speedwells

Can someone identify this yellow flower plant/shrub?

There are a few shrubs around that I really don't like and that's one of them 

ID please

Thanks for the info pbff. I've never seen those ferns (and never likely to in this agricultural desert). I didn't know there was more than one species.

ooh are Adder's Tongues a bit Lords & Ladies, a bit Cuckoo Pint?  Not met them before.

See original post

 Visual similarities but it is a fern. I want to see some now but I doubt if there are any round here

Interesting looking things those Adder's Tongues, I'd like to see them for real. 

Have any of them got the long fruiting part?
