Special Plant in garden

Posted: 30/10/2016 at 18:54

There are some great plants to be had.


and then there those pink and white variegated things (many) 


A matter of taste


or lack of it

Anyone know of these are weeds?

the second is Alliaria petiolata, Jack by the Hedge and many other names. Orange Tip larvae food


The first does look like a geum and could be the dreaded Geum urbanum if you didn't plant it. I can't remember the common name for that.

Rotten Apples

If you have space and it's a nice looking tree keep it for the bird food as NewBoy suggests. Occasionally a good apple comes from seed and a new variety is created, but mostly nothing much of quality for human consumption.


I like 'Sam's Early Compost'

all those white and pink things are sick looking to me, not enough chlorophyll and liable to burn round edges in anything other than moist, still, shady, mild situations.


Plastic toys, I don't like those either

Bulbs and Corms

looking at that horizontal line running round I wonder about crocosmia corms. Could you clean one up so we can see the shape properly?

Wasps

they are licking the sticky stuff. Any aphids around or plants overhead that drip sticky stuff?

Just hoed up my green manure seedlings!

I've never hoed up seedlings, not sure if there's a hoe in the shed


I've dug up bulbs half an hour after I planted them

I'm not much of a variegation fan at all but when pink is added

I'd rather have the species. That pink cultivar looks awful.
