Actinidia damage

Posted: 30/04/2015 at 20:35

More damage is done by minus 1 degree in late April than by minus 10 in January. But generally it's only superficial and the plant is fine.

Is it possible to divide Sweet Williams?

They look like sweet williams. There may be a lot of plants there, it which case you could spread them out a bit. It's getting a bit late to interfere really, they'll be coming up to flower soon and they may flop over and you'll lose the best display. I don't think they divide and that would surely upset them anyway

Two plant IDs please

2 could be some sort of campanula, one of the tallish ones, C. trachelium maybe.

I agree, viscious stuff. Poor show in the shade as well

Leather jackets more likely. Photograph one before you squidge it.

The dangers of gardening

Posted: 30/04/2015 at 18:32

Dangerous place out there.

I think my worst was digging up a plant and disturbing a wasp nest. A wasp came  at my face and stung me on the eyelid. Agony. It left the sting behind and OH pulled it out with a tool from the workshop, also unpleasant. I couldn't see for days, looked like I'd been in a fight.

I hope yours sorts out quickly Minos. and all other current sufferers

Dividing Bridal Wreath

Is this the shrub that's a cultivar of a spirea? Has it got more than one stem coming out of the ground?

ID required

It's goung up to flower but I can't see the top. They're all much the same shape.but we might be able to see white or yellow.


any ideas what this is?

I'd dig one up. If it looks and smell like a parsnip then it's a parsnip. A lot of that family look much the same in leaf.

to post pics from a computer start with the tree in the tool bar and ignore any error messages you get, just press return.

Some people load to one of the photo storage sites and post a link

Plant ID Please

The purple stems look like asparagus, not so sure about the top though.

The little thing near the tulips could be an agastache seedling but unlikely to be last year's plant. It might not look like the one you started off with.

I think your fears are right re the first.
