Two plants that I need IDing.

Posted: 25/08/2014 at 16:43

The first one might be one of the asters and if so should flower eventually.

Is the second one very shiny or is it wet? It's elder shaped but too shiny.

 

HELLO FORKERS!

I've been to Norwell a couple of times Fidget. Andrew Ward does some  good talks as well, I think he's doing one for a local garden group in September. 

Identify please.

Hi Ann, a wildflower, yes. I think it was used to make soap in former times. 

I've got some growing where I don't want it, coming up through one of those yellow euonymus(es), but I can't get it started where I do want it

I don't like yellow leaves and pink flowers together

Identify please.

ah

well done

I thinks that's Saponaria officinalis, soapwort. Possibly a cultivated variety with semi double flowers

Identification please

Phytolacca americana. They are lovely, don't eat the berries

Capsid bug

They don't do much damage do they?

Think of all the other insects that will be killed by an insect spray; bees, butterflies, hoverflies , the list is too long to mentiun them all

HELLO FORKERS!

Doesn't it get dark early?!

Good idea artjak

Sometimes I go back to the garden after a lunch break and I can't see enough to do anything except stuff the shredder. If I put a tool down I can't find it and the low sun gets in my eyes.

Apart from that I love the winter works in the garden, tree cutting, pruning and major works of alteration.

The shredder has just been taken into the operating theatre for major surgery and I've already got a pile of stuff to put through.

I'd hose them off with water, you don't want poisons on your food

Have you got a photo of the flower heads? 

If the green leafy looking bits round it meet in the middle it's not open yet.

If there's a flat middle and a leafy frill round it, it's over for flowering but leave the seeds for the birds
