can I prune my primroses

Posted: 13/04/2016 at 20:40

Mine are still increasing Madalien

a couple of IDs please

This viburnum has never had a name, bought cheap, lost label, years ago. Out now, fantastic scent, semi evergreen but the leaves turn red in autumn




and this one which I think is a petasites or near relation. Very white in flower to start with, then goes pinkish, about 2 foot tall. Invasive in a friend's garden where it came from but diminishing in mine, probably too dry in summer.

I forgot Crocus speciosus, there's one called 'Conqueror' which still turns up every year in my garden but hasn't spread like Colchicum autumnale

Nerine bowdenii is pink (if it's not white)

Colchicums as well

don't bother with Crocus sativus, it rarely plays the game

Help identifying plant or weed.

I have heard 

Allium ursinum

Allium triquetum 

Alliaria petiolata

all referred to as wild garlic.

This is why I use the above names. I like to know which plant I'm discussing.

re weeds. I'd rather have  Alliaria petiolata than  Lysimachia ciliata



Alyssum Saxatile Compactum

Too much heat and enclosure I'd say. Bob may be right about autumn sowing, I haven't grown this one, but fresh is the best way to sow any seed and they'll be fresher in autumn. Sooner if you can get hold of them, they'll be plants by winter, plant out in spring.

I didn't get mine established properly until I bought a couple of pots of cheap, going to seed plants at the end of season sale. I wonder if they don't like the dried out and packed in bags treatment

Is this a plant or weed?

 these have been confused in photos before, though the differences are obvious when you see them for real

Plant ID, what is it, please?

They're not wildly invasive or difficult to remove. Handy for dry shade where not much else thrives. It wouldn't be at the top of my list for a very small garden.
