pyrocanthus soil change

Posted: 22/08/2016 at 12:00

If there's been a big pyracantha there for years It's probably exhausted all the nutrients but that's easily remedied.

You'll have to dig them up/cut them down as I do, and everyone did, before the poisons were invented

Plant I.D please

yes I think that is/was a choisya. 


I agree re don't let it dry out but that has the look of something that's been too wet for too long. Has it got drainage holes. You could cut off all the dead stuff, right back, repot in free draining compost and see what happens. 


I wouldn't bother

I think Fritillary is right on 4.


Its leaves are in 2/3 but they don't belong to the flowers

Berberis...dying?

I wouldn't worry about the white spots, all the leaves will drop off for winter and nice new ones next year. 10days is a long time without water in summer. I'd cut off the dead bits, don't let it dry out again and all will be well next year

Any idea on this weed? or am I being unkind!

nothing looks like Russian vine to me but a couple of in focus pictures would help clarify.

is my plum tree dying?

Posted: 21/08/2016 at 08:45

I'm no good at disease ID but I can see when a tree is terminally sick. I'd get rid of it now. It's hard when it's been a good tree but everything dies eventually and for this one the time has come.

Sum id's please

the marigold comes in all shades from light yellow to dark orange


Borage comes in white but isn't as nice


hollyhocks come in many colours, white, cream, pink, yellow, purple  and some double flowered ones.


The lychnis with the artichoke come in white as well. as far as I know artichokes are all much the same colour

Sum id's please

if 1. is huge I agree with Rainbowfish. I think it is huge, that's Lychnis coronaria in the photo with it and it looks tiny
