ID? Weed or plant

Posted: 07/04/2015 at 09:17

Although I've been guilty of it in the past I think posting a picture of what we think it is causes problems. By the time the thread gets to the second page people are identifying a suggestion rather than the original plant.

ID? Weed or plant

Who would decide which was the correct answer?

new house new garden and unknown plants

I think it depends on the quality of the composting Edd. Mine is just a heap. If I put Pentaglossis on the heap I have Pentaglossis growing out of the heap. It doesn't die on there, it flourishes, along with all the other stuff.

Weed or not a weed

3 for ID please

Thanks Buttercup. I think 3 might be a wait and see. I have oenothera in number but the don't look like that and they're nowhere near flowering.

I appreciate all the suggestions.

I've only just got round to checking out Pere David and he'e a flexuosa hybrid. I don't think this is a flexuosa, not blue enough 

Identify this please?

Alliaria petiolata maybe. aka Jack by the hedge,

Give it a bit of a squeeze and smell it. If I'm right it's vaguely garlicy

more indentification please

I think that might be a lonicera

Hi Lyn, I have sweet rocket in purple, white and sort of mauve, but this no longer looks like sweet rocket

Is my plant dead?

Posted: 06/04/2015 at 14:25

It shouldn't need protection. Lots of plants haven't woken up yet and it is a fairly later flowerer. Too soon to worry 

Best tall plant to attract dragonflies?

I think plants growing out from the water is most important, what they are is irrelevant as Simon says. Dragonflies are carnivores not plant eaters
