Two mystery plants

Posted: 07/06/2015 at 19:06

I wonder about astrantia for the second.

 

Help!

They'll arrange themselves more naturally around your supports quite quickly Victoria. Plants turn their leaves to catch the light and rearrange them when neccessary. 

Drought

Posted: 07/06/2015 at 17:32

Yes Bob, the torential rain that spread through the east of the country earlier in the week missed us by inches. (Peterborough) I'm watering what is newly planted and holding off planting anything else til we get rain. If we don't, I'll have to pot on.

There's a new plantation of trees in the field next door. They were planted very late in the season and some look dead to me.

Dying weeping willow

My guess is this weeping willow is the little Kilmarnock. If it is, don't cut below the graft.

Personally, I would remove it.The chances of it ever looking beautiful are small.

Bluebells - White and Pink?

Let them die off naturally

Stachys byzantina

I wouldn't be able to tell unless it flowered or didn't.

If it's any help mine is about 18inches tall now, but not showing any colour yet.

Well done

Looks like a walnut

Nettles

Posted: 07/06/2015 at 08:58

You have to keep weeding and never let them seed. Nettles make a lot of seed and it's all there in the soil waiting to germinate when conditions are good. 

Old saying, 'One year's seeding makes seven year's weeding'. That is a very conservative estimate

Plants wilting :(

What are they like this morning? Plants often drop a bit in the heat of the sun.
