Ginkgo Biloba seeds

the treatments are to promote germination. They've germinated, get them into some compost and light.

Dividing Iris reticulata and Crocus clumps

I think I'd do it as they're dying down, after they've finished building up the bulb for next year.

Baby Oak Tree Inside

Not so good if it's lost last summer's leaves and the new ones have gone brown. I'd put it out anyway but could be terminal.


Native UK plants don't do well indoors

Which plant?

It's winter, oak leaves go brown for winter then fall off. If needs to be outside asap before the new leaves start growing.

Ladybirds are waking up

I would have put it outside, it's where they live. They can't hibernate  (or whatever they do in winter) in a warm house but are unlikely to find much to eat.

I think Philippa may have had the Indian one, and that's why I said the leaves looked different.  Hope she didn't eat it.


See original post

 My memory for these things is poor but I think I may have sent Philippa the seeds for that 


I doubt if she's eating it, I'm certainly not.

I've been growing what I thought was Phytolacca americana for about 20 years. Last year I realised it was  Phytolacca acinosa. 


can't remember where the seeds came from or I'd ask for my money back. Though I may have a better plant, much more upright.

Rejuvenating Overgrown Boxleaf Honeysuckle

Posted: 15/02/2017 at 21:08

Looks like Lonicera nitida. Never heard it called boxleaf honeysuckle but that describes it well. You can be brutal with these in my experience. OH cut one right back to nothing for a friend many years ago. The idea was to get rid of it but it grew back a treat
