Plant ID help

Not sure the leaf shape is right for Nadina. Wonder if it might be a Leucothoe.

I don't grow either so I can't go and check.

The other maybe Centaurea montana, 

Can someone please help me identify this lovely smelling shrub/plant

Difficult one Heather. I think I'd clear around and give it space for a start. Don't overdo any feeding, the shock might finish it off. A nice composty mulch to see it through the summer perhaps

Is it too soon to split sedums?

I'd better do mine.It's hard to know where to start at this time of year

japanese anemone

I wouldn't. They're not quick like annuals. I'd use a pot. 

Japanese anemone is a name given to more or less any perennial late flowering anemone. Many are hybrids. Do you know what you've got?

Another plant/shrub that needs identifying :) Thank you

I've got a white one called  'White Icicle' . Lovely thing. Also more inclined to flower before the leaves than by pink one so even more impressive

Can someone please help me identify this lovely smelling shrub/plant

I don't think it needs ericaceous but a bit of light and leafy and not exposed to full sun or wind. The one I visit regularly has all this and is enormous in a fairly short time

Crocks for ....

Posted: 05/03/2014 at 09:19

Commonsense tells me it's for drainage. Crocks don't hold moisture.

There's always the possibility that it's one of those things that's always been done, passed on through the generations and has no purpose at all.

I've never put crocks in a pot yet

I might not be saying much but there are always plants here and I'll be ready when the time comes. Seeds will be sorted soon.
