Privett hedge problem

Posted: 05/05/2014 at 19:11

If he's cut it back hard it should recover. Privet always recovers. There are times when I've regretted that but the goldfinches like to nest in it so that's OK

Early flowering plants for butterflies?

Posted: 05/05/2014 at 16:37

butterflies will be looking for the leaves of food plants for the larvae so they can lay eggs on them.

chestnut tree

They are yes. 

I haven't heard of a patio version but there may be.

I agree re the pompoms Scott. For most plants not just paeonies.

All my tree paeonies are from seed, not so expensive like that but a bit 'could be anything' in colour as they have a tendency to cross. I've never had a red seedling from my red delavayi but my neighbour has from seed I gave him. I'm a bit peeved about that.

Most of mine are in some shade, the flowers last a bit longer there.

Ideas please

Corydalis? blue? carpeting? How do you get it to do that Verdun.

It dies every time I try.

Even when give a large chunk from a well established clump it only lasted a couple of years

the excess water is definitely at the root (well.. mycelium ) of the problem.

That's very good Bob

weed or plant?

herb robert stems are very red at the base and juicy. is it like that?

 it's an annual and has less root in proportion to stem than most of the perennials.

Will your camera do  higher resolution pics Michuk?

horse chestnut or sweet chestnut?

Neither sounds like a patio plant to me

What plant is growing in my garden?

Posted: 05/05/2014 at 10:12

I'm not familiar with Cornus kousa (Bamboogie's suggestion), except at a distance but I think a cornus of some sort is likely.

It may be a seedling, some do seed around and it seems too close to a wall to have been planted. I don't think it's a climbing plant.

not the quercus or pittosporum
