Laburnum Trees

fears are terrible, commonsense is over-ridden by alarmist journalism, people have become too distanced from nature and are frightened of plants, insects and goodness knows what else.

Can anyone tell me what plant this is please?

Looks like a fremontodendron

What is eating my viburnum opulous?

It's not a gonna. Pests don't usually kill the food crop. They'll need it next year

Plant id please

If it's in the hedge maybe it's been cut at the wrong time for flowering previously. That looks like a garden version, the native one has flatter flower heads

Aquiligia Cameo

Cameo is a cultivar of Aquilegia flabellata, a pretty small species compared to the A.vulgaris brigade. If you have both you might get some interesting babies.

It's worth getting a few different ones, the reds/yellows of the N. Americans and A. viridiflora (often marketed as 'Chocolate Soldier' ( or something like that) all mix up together with great results

Never been GD, it sounds wonderful I might be a bit envious

Paths make the best seed beds. I have lots of plants that started life in the drive

from the top

G. sanguineum

G. nodosum

G. renardii

maybe cultivars of same but I think the renardii is the species plant

Will my aquilegia flower this year?
