What do I grow?

Posted: 04/05/2014 at 08:56

Mike, my poor brain. I've read through those posts and all the plants have fallen out already

I'll add Daphne tangutica, Dicentra macrocapnos (called something else now), yellow rattle, greater and lesser knapweed, elecampane, ragged robin and Pulmonaria rubra.

I did a species count many years ago, there were hundreds but some have been swamped by this lot, stinging nettles, goosegrass, woundwort, wood avens, enchanter's nightshade, creeping buttercup, cow parsley, hogweed and many of their mates

Holm oak leaf problem?

must be the wine Melanie, growing tips I meant to type

If it's making new growth and dropping some old leaves that's OK. If new growth is yellowing and dropping, that's not OK

could someone ID this please

I'd be interested to see it when it's settled and fully in flower

weeds or flowers?

Hi Maggie, the trees to the left of the shed are field maples, grown from seed 21 years ago.

The ones to the right are birches, a couple of years younger but might be taller.

The shed will be 6' or so to the eaves so maybe 20' for the trees. Big enough to sit in the shade of for several years now

So now you know

weeds or flowers?

Geums, lots of them. 

Geum is a genus. A group of species. Some wild, some cultivated forms of wild ones, some hybrids, (a cross between 2 species)

Daphne?

There are other weigelas. There's one with very dark purplish leaves and plain green ones. Have you got one of those

Daphne?
