Plant ID Please

I suspect weeds from the country of origin. If you know where they came from (before Poundland) it might be worth looking through a list of native plants for the area. They don't look garden-worthy and probably won't be in a gardening book.

Help me save my cyclamen!!

I don't think many plants like to be suspended in water, let it dry out a bit between waterings. They don't like warm rooms and sunny windowsills. The green stuff says it's too wet.


Any ideas?

Take a few more photos if you get a chance.

The main stems included

I still think lonicera but not nitida or pileata

Improving Composting for the Elderly

I'd like to be left for the kites and buzzards, ants and fungi

but I'm not willing to donate my body to rats.

Can someone design me something to help achieve this aim

Any ideas?

re your comparison to Lonicera nitida.

I wonder if it is a species of lonicera, the stems and buds look more like lonicera than snowberry to me.

Not one I recognize though, sorry

Mystery Bulbs

apart from the shoot they look like something that smells bad

Have you squeezed them? If they're rotten they'll be soft. Or will become soft

Have I killed my Nerines?

If they look healthy they should be OK. Give them a couple of years in the hottest spot you can find and see how they do. Shading out stops them flowering but it won't kill them immediately

Which iris please

unguicularis I should think if it's in a clump and the time is right as well.

Mine started flowering yesterday.

reticulata show bulb behaviour, leaves then flowers appear in early spring then it all dies away.

unguicularis, hardy perennial behaviour, keeps leaves all year

Hate those bright green/pink/orange etc flowers that supermarkets sell too. They're sort of florescent colours and look so fake YUK 



Especially those with variegated cabbages on long stalks - yuk

Could you take a photo from the other side please. That one doesn't show much detail.
