i don't think butterflies will have laid eggs on them, they're not the food plants of any native caterpillars, they're not native plants

I've got flowers. My seed came from the forum seed swap


Can't remember who sent me those

Clerodendrum bungei. I like those, 


I'd always understood they were not completely hardy which put me off getting some. 

What do you think this is?

I always liked those Mike, but not the ones we called Godetia. 


Haven't grown either for a very long time indeed

What do you think this is?

It's been cultivated in the UK for years but probably gone out of fashion now.


I remember them from the 50s.

What do you think this is?

Clarkia or Godetia, whichever is the current name

Help! Little trees growing everywhere!

Have you a photo.the speed of growth and the number of seedlings doesn't sound like hawthorn. Also hawthorns aren't very big trees. But probably irrelevant, they're in your lawn and you don't want them.


I find mowing deals with tree seedlings in grass very effectively

A tree is my garden is very sick

I'll bump this up in case anyone has anything to suggest but these plants are so far gone I think it will be difficult to pin-point the original cause.

Gardening bikers?

In early days I had a topbox on a Honda 50. But often couldn't get the lid down so had to ride slowly to avoid wind damage to the plants.


You need a side-car.

I'd remove that rose, the yew behind looks OK


The other is so sick I can't see what it is, remove anything diseased and see what you've got left.


I'm no good at disease ID. I don't get much practice. My answer is always to remove the sick bits. If that's the whole plant then goodbye plant. I never use any chemicals and seem to have achieved a kind of balance.
