Mystery Plants from inherited garden

I still think the phlox is aubrieta but as I can't get it big enough to focus on I can't be sure.

Do you need to get rid of them. Mostly these things have their moment and then they've gone. Let nature be.

Will I lose my leylandi trees

Posted: 31/05/2013 at 11:55

Hi Rosie

Any part of a leylandii that's gone brown won't renew. The more the ivy and honeysuckle cover the more of the leylandii will go. Personally I'd rather have ivy and honeysuckle. The problem is if the leylandii do die thay will eventually do what dead trees do , fall over

I think I've got enough to be useful artjak. Can they replace standard garlic in any recipe?

Propagating Nepeta....

I haven't done this, I divide mine. But I should think you could take soft wood cuttings from nepeta. I'd wait til it's really reliably warm and growing weather. Keep them somewhere out of the sun,

I reckon that is a buddleia figrat. and the orangey red a mimulus.

The big srub, if the first two pics are the same plant, looks like one of the cotoneasters to me. and the first of the mauves aubretia, then a primula.

I love them Fg. My patch is growing but has a long way to go to achieve anything like as good as blackest's pic

You have to tread on them ofsqueeze them to get the smell blackest. They do look like ramsons, wild garlic, allium ursinum, which are out now.
