Feeling sorry for myself today

Agree with Dave, gentle exercise. Walking is great. 

Cover a fence limited soil

In the strip with the gravel?

How wide is the gap and how deep is the soil?

If it's a basal rosette of leaves I'd leave it. Last year's flower stalks I'd cut off, whether or not they flowered.

I think the right hand one is a yucca. They can be very sharp

Red ants

I'd tip them out, wait for them to disperse and the birds will eat any eggs. Then put the soil back.

Sounds good Dove. 

Forsythia giraldiana

Dove is working on an ID for one of mine. Might be giraldiana

But it might not.

I bought it from a roadside stall years ago, no label, pretty pale yellow flowers, not too crowded. I thought it might be  F. suspensa but Dove says it's not like hers. 

What do you think Jane?



Climbing Fuchsia 'Lady Boothby'

Posted: 23/03/2016 at 14:02

Fuchsia can get long and lanky but they have no equipment to climb anything, no twining or tendrils or thorns to hang on by

So technically they're not climbing, without help they're probably ground cover

Are these weeds?

I think the 3rd is a willowherb but not rosebay. 

Forsythia giraldiana

Not so many people have F. giraldiana though. Forsythia x intermedia (and its long string of cultivars) is much more common. 

Most people (including me ) haven't a clue which one they've got.
