Thanks Jo

not water mint

Posted: 16/09/2015 at 18:40

I was given this as water mint but it doesn't look like the water mint I've grown in the past, th leaves look more like hyssop.. It's been grown in water and arrived in a bucket of water.

I googled water mint and that looked as I expected, not like this. The smell is strongly aoromatic but not really minty

Any ideas



ID and renovation advice please

I've never called it plumbago. 

Plant ID please

Which looks nothing like the OP

small tree

I'd go for something that doesn't get tall even if not pruned. Trees have a lovely shape naturally, lost once the saw is brought out

white crocosmia

I don't think they come in white. If you google white crocosmia images some superficially similar plants come up, but if you visit the site they are taken from they are Crinum and Watsonia

Plant ID please

It goes out of focus when enlarged but not an alchemilla or a potentilla. 

Not the same plant as OP

Where to buy native plants/seeds?

In evolutionary terms the Romans were here yesterday

Plant ID please

Alchemilla no doubt at all

Variegated shrub ID please

I can only kinda agree because I'm not on intimate terms with this one
