Can you get a photo? Your description sounds like mould and the fact that you can't hose it off suggests that as well

What grows in dark/dry areas?

The greens and whites look good in shade.  Bright colours don't look their best

Identify weeds

Yes, that doesn't look like the weedy one. How many plants are there. The weed never comes in singles

A photo would help

I have lichen all over one of my laburnums but it doesn't kill the branches.


pruning shrubs for growth

I have a multi-stemmed laurel. Some of the branches were leaning over the road so we cut them right off, back to the ground. There is now a nice bushy plant on half the laurel. This winter we'll take the rest off and we'll be back to a bush.

This is Jasminum polyanthum? I don't think that's  very hardy , you might need to pot anyway

Hi Rosie,

A square metre  or metre and a half required for mine. They'll go in the back of my car with the back seats down but wouldn't go in a small boot.

I can do 50 miles no problem,a bit more maybe. 

These are the plants

 Ignore the euphorbia creeping in from the side, that's in the ground.

Not much of a pic is it but I'm not much of a photographer


help needed identifying weed

Does it pull out leaving nothing behind Bob?

What plant is this, plus pic this time!

Posted: 18/04/2014 at 08:43

I don't think it's a buddleia.

That bronze tint can be deceptive, a lot of young leaves do that

How big is the plant and does it look as though it's been planted or is it oddly placed like a self sown plant

Hi Lizzie

I have a boot load of plants. If I remember I'll take their photo tomorrow. Mine aren't this year from seed plants, they're mostly last year from seed or cutting
