Various questions and plant IDs

Posted: 13/08/2016 at 14:39

Malva moschata is perennial, easy from seed and comes in pink as well

I think both labels may belong to the ricinus. Species, Ricinus communis, cultivar 'Atropurpurea'

the orange one, a begonia I think

and the white after that, a saponaria

the variegated stuff under the equisetum is worse than ivy, it Houttuynia cordata 'Chamaeleon' very invasive

What's happening to my cyclamen?

partial shade I should think, though as I've never kept one alive don't take my word for it

Apart from the heron fence that looks pretty nice wildflowers. I don't think goldfish belong in a wildlife pond, I'd let the heron have those and take the fence down  

The reason you don't see my liner is because there isn't one, when the water level goes down in summer you see the bare bits of bank instead.

It also has defects, the sides are much too steep for one. We'd do it differently if we were starting again.

No, not all outdoor, I don't know what you've got there but assumed indoor, I think it is, looking at it. The outdoor ones are smaller in flower and leaf. It will be OK in a cool place outdoors in summer though

my garden cyclamen are just waking up, the C. hederifolia that is, nothing else.

I'm the kiss of death to a house plant but I know that those sort don't like it too warm, or sunny, or too much water.

Yes, they look very sad wakeshine.

Good luck. I don't think that's a plant that grows wild in the Uk and it doesn't look like a cultivated plant. I'd like to know what it is so if you find out somewhere else could you report back please.

Hi Marina, we do have a few forum members in Canada but we're largely UK based. 

I guessed you were not uk based, we have very few plants that sting and no fire ants to compare them with. 

I hope someone will recognise that and that the finger recovers quickly

I do wonder about bird feeding sometimes GD. We had quite a few casualties earlier in the breeding season, dead baby goldfinches and chaffinches. I put it down to the cold and wet but OH questioned what he calls the fast food outlet. Unhealthy for us, unhealthy for the birds?
