Can I store gladioli bulbs until next year?

I'd post them, they stand more chance that way.

I think that's one of the petasites. P hybridus maybe. Butterbur

ripe for a  spot of glyphosate.

Have realised your 3 ares is 3 areas, I thought 3 acres at first glance

In for a tea break, back to 3 acres of nettles now 

 

 

What is my plant and can it be saved?

If you can't get a photo on try one of the photo storage sites and a link

Can somebody identify this one?

Posted: 13/05/2015 at 14:54

No I don't think it is catanche. The petals of that look as those they've been cut short with blunt scissors. and as you say, the stems don't look right.

But I haven't a better suggestion, sorry

Hello, welcome to the forum

From a computer you can post a picture starting from the tree in the tool bar, ignore error messages and press enter.

Phone users increasingly use photo storage sites and post a link

Not thuja, that's a tree

That's horsetail, a very persistant weed.

If yoiu use the search facility on this site you'll find numerous threads on how to deal with it. Not one I've had to deal with fortunately

what compost ?

Posted: 13/05/2015 at 09:31

I use a mix of seed, MPC and grit. Seed on its own I find too hard and it's easy to break roots when pricking out. MPC alone is easy to get too soggy and mouldy.

A photo would help. Missing bark is important whatever it looks like underneath, that's the growing part of the tree.

If you want a wildlife garden forget the sprays. You need to achieve a balance of life forms and wiping some out won't take you there, it has effects right up the food chain

Tree diseases are mostly specific to species and are unlikely to spread to the others you mention.

Is it possible this tree is one of the variegated ones, some of which are very suceptible to frost/wind and anything else that comes their way, and that the plain green part has reverted?
