Spring bulbs growing now

Posted: 04/11/2014 at 13:41

Hi Liz, sorry to hear your dad had died but glad you're taking over the graden

I don't think 1 is a snowdrop, it could be one of the muscaris

2 is an anemone

3 may be Iris reticulata or similar

4 could be an allium from the way its leaves have collapsed

Perennial planting time?

I wouldn't plant out either of those at this end of the year. A cold frame as Dave suggests or a cold GH would be my choice

Don't eat those 'currants'. 

I can't see the shape of the plant but first guess is Solanum nigrum, black nightshade. 

Garrya elliptica james roof or Persian ivy (dentata colchica)

Where do you live Lola?

Garrya tends to get browned in cold winter winds here in East Anglia

Purple Tree?

I like it as it is I'd just prune off a few stragglers

As Hostafan says, the choice is yours. What would look more appropriate in your garden, a knarled, lichen covered tree or a bush of large purple leaves.
