Wild flowers

Posted: 01/07/2014 at 18:51

Oh yes. They do as they please,  we can't influence them.

I'm happy with what turns up

That's very satisfying WG. I'm sure more will turn up soon. Along with the butterflies.

Today for the first time in years I saw small tortoiseshell investigating the nettles.

They're along our boundary and  so much at risk from the farmer and his killing sprays

Can you help identify these plants please?

I think you're right fidget, just wasn't sure what I was looking at but I think they are baby berries

Can you help identify these plants please?

I can't get focussed on the flowers/seeds/berries AmandaBen

Ok, camera out

those flowers or whatever. The shape of the whole bush. The trunk/branches. some more leaves

powdery mildew on polemonium

Posted: 01/07/2014 at 16:21

Some things are very prone to mildew and polemonium is one of them.

Spores are everywhere, don't worry about the secateurs. As Edd says it doesn't need water. In fact I associated with very dry conditions.

I stopped growing the blue ones because they always looked so bad. The yellow species don't seem to suffer

Can you help identify these plants please?

Plicatum, that's the word that wouldn't come Flowerchild. Thank you

Does that just leave us with 2? another pic needed

That will be sawfly larvae and/or snails on the Solomon's Seal, AmandaBen

Soil Type

Most people grow their veg in whatever soil they've got, adding manure etc  to improve it.

Raised beds are in fashion but a long way from essential

Can you help identify these plants please?

The hydgrangea is H petiolaris though its name may have changed, 

Another pic of 2 might help,I can't see if it's producing berries or seed heads.

also another pic  of the last one which may be a viburnum. 'Mariesii' or 'Lanarth' or one of that type. A close up of the leaves maybe,

Plant Identification (again, sorry!)

throwi the seeds where you would like them when they've ripened.

There are so many it doesn't matter if they don't all germinate
