help!

Having seen plenty of red corpuscles, (if under a microscope), cyclamen and crocosmia, I'll go with the crocosmia.

Trace, if you can't do a photo can you say how huge? Also were they on the surface or did you dig them up from below the surface? And are they red or brown?

help!

I wondered about that Lyn but then thought they'd have leaves. But maybe old ones don't.

They're more red blood cell shaped than cyclamen

Pity it came to the front of the forum again. We've had a few weeks without all that rubbish

my shrub from next door is not doing well

I don't think that's either of the laurels mentioned. That's not the way they droop and die off.

I agree it's got to be hacked back and soon if it's going to survive. A small rootball can't support that lot

Identification of plant

Hi Maggie, It's some kind of Malva, mallow. Someone will recognise the variety

Any idea what this is please

I don't know that one. Is it hardy?

Yes, but make sure they're ripe, brown and dry, first.

does this berry bush look ok?

Posted: 06/07/2014 at 15:41

I don't think the white leaves are part of the berry bush. It looks like a weed geum, urbanum probably. 

It's hard to tell from the photo but the berry bush looks too close to the wall for good health and with that periwinkle there as well, and whatever is creeping in on the right, there'll be a lot of competition for moisture and nutrients.

Pretty. Maybe I should re-introduce it.

When it's nearly ripe tie a paper bag over its head to catch them.

The fancy colours won't necessarily come true
