Laburnum die back

Posted: 03/07/2014 at 20:06

Green doesn't mean it's still alive Carol, not when it looks as dead as that. It just means it hasn't been dead long.

I don't know laburnum diseases but I'm sure it will be a disease. It's not old, mine were planted around 1960, I've known them for the past 20plus years. They do have bits of die-back but I've been lucky and never lost a whole tree.

They're yews, Taxus baccata. Are they newly planted?

The bulbs, which are not all bulbs need to be rehydrated and planted now. You could put the freesias in pots as they aren't hardy as far as I know and you'll have to protect them in the winter.

Next spring will be too late for these and may be too late already if they've dried out too much. 

Convallaria  majalis is lily of the valley

Lathyus odoratus is sweet pea, It's too late for this year flowering so I'd store those for next. You could try the lavender in pots but it would be very small and still need protection by winter

Might do for me Verdun. I don't like the smell of Philadelphus

I'll try and get some Bupleurum falcatum this year cotty. They're flowering, earlier than last year, so I'm hopeful.

 

Another plant ID please!

I think that's Godetia, which is also called Clarkia sometimes but what I call Clarkia is the pink and mauve frilly ones to the right of the pic.

Probably been reclassified since my distant childhood. My mother grew those

I think so Dove,

Glad it wasn't me.

But I'd have more sense

Also true

Plant ID please

I thought that was how it went but it didn't seem to go

I may have another go later
