Help needed to identify blossom tree

Posted: 07/06/2014 at 11:59

Right. Leaves, bark, flowers even if they're nearly over. It all helps

Yes,they would be white/cream/ greenish. It's not the species that has all those fancy colour schemes. Lovely plant though

Can you get a close up of the leaves? 

Is the picture current or taken earlier in the season?

One of the red hawthorns is a possibility but it's too far away to be sure

I don't believe it.

Charlie

I don't mind them in the garden and will happily squash them but that's too much.

HELLO FORKERS!

You'd have had to get up early to beat the rain here Bob

Tipping it down again now but no thunder this time

A couple of rose questions

Right, thanks KEF, I'll get a specific rose feed and some sequestrene and see what happens. I love Rosa moyesii but it's spoilt by those yellowed leaves. 

I'll give it a couple of years of TLC and see how it goes. My fear is that there's something in there. I've just remembered I moved Galanthus 'Wendy's Gold' from there because it wasn't increasing. It's only had one season in the new home and doubled in flower power.

A couple of rose questions

Thanks Chrissie and Hostafan, I'll get the roses in as soon as the stinging nettles are out They won't necessarily have to be there permanently but they're starting to flower and would look better in the garden than the black nursery pots.

I'll try a specific rose feed and see if there's any improvement. I try not to think too hard about what has been dumped here over the years

A couple of rose questions

Posted: 07/06/2014 at 09:31

1. I bought a couple of shrub roses , 

Tuscany Superb and Queen of Denmark. could they cope with a site that only gets sun in the afternoon? They would get more in the winter when the leaves are off the trees. The RHS wasn't very helpful. Says full sun, but also NSE or W aspect. North wouldn't get full sun.

2. I have R. moyesii which has always had a tendency to yellow leaves. It's been there some years and has had applications of horse muck and occasional chicken pellet manure. In the same area, this spring, I planted R spinosissima which was a lovely dark green when I put it there but is now more yellow. If it was a deficiency what might it be. Or, as my garden is a former tip used by builders and farmers, if there was something in the soil there what sort of thing might cause yellowing

Thanks all
