Forgotten bulb/tuber - what could it be?

Posted: 07/08/2016 at 17:55

 Could be dahlia, it's not a bulb so that cuts out all that lot

Retirement is great

Though I've never worked in an office and most of my working life was single handed

the one in the neighbour's garden will be a rudbeckia I should think. You'll have to find a tactful way of asking for a piece without implying that he doesn't know what's what in his garden.

Cut the leaves off right to the bottom of the stems. If it was my garden, with its rock solid soil, I's pot it up til it got some root and leaves and plant out in autumn

Black eyed Susan? Looks more like a hardy geranium.

The non-hardy plant Ladybird referred to is a Thunbergia. I've also heard rudbeckias called BES. This isn't either

Manual hedge cutting or electric

It could make a big difference what the particular hedge plants are like naturally.

My amelanchia hedge is loose and wilder looking. I am trying to trim it up a bit more but I rather like the more natural look. Some plants look better if they are not chopped back to rigidly suit our standards of neatness.

Leafless ornimental Cherry

They're not long-lived trees but that does seem a rather sudden end. Maybe someone else will have some suggestions re cause

I don't think you can revive it. How old is it? Is the trunk damaged at all? Did it leaf up and stay nice and green last year?

I fear it is. Plants need leaves to survive.

ID for nondescript plant

Could be Hesperis matronalis. Sweet Rocket. But as you say, nondescript. It's a biennial, the flowers will be next year, pretty and well scented especially in the evening
