hi everyone, do you have trouble remembering what the name of your plants are. I know quite a few names but.....?


As soon as someone points to a plant in my garden and asks me what it is - my mind goes blank!πŸ€”


I try to memorise the common name but feel I should learn the Latin name, and end up not remembering any name😳


I don't want to stick labels all over the place so I was wondering does anyone else have this problem and has anyone got a good way of remembering plant names that they could pass onto me pls😘

Thankyou ladybird4,


I need to read up on it now, however I've planted it in a large tub until I know we're it will finally live also I'm away for a week now.


I have tried to follow planting /water information but  its looking a bit sorry for itself, hopefully it will settle down and perk up over the next few days. If not I'll have to take cuttings when I get back.


thanks for your reply.πŸ˜€

Is this chick weed?

Hi Hazel, sorry for the very very late reply on the viola's but I must tell you I took some to a professional gardener and he said they are definately weeds and must be pulled out before they flower or else you will have millions and never get rid of them! ☹️

Hi, my builder has given me this lovely shrub but he has no idea what it is as the person whom he got it off didn't know either.


it has a lovely fragrance and looks very much like a buddlia but the flowers are not quie as cone shaped, and the leaves are more rounded and a lighter colour (I think) 


its stuffed in a plastic bag at the moment but I would love to know what it is so that I can make sure that its planted it in the right place and I look after it properly.


i hope someone can recognise it.

Great philippa smith2

thanks for your advice, I have had them in our garage all winter which I will do again this Autumn, I'm glad you mentioned the benefit of the clay pots I think they look nicer in them, I think I will cover the soil with stones to help with drainage and think they will look more tropical,

thanks again????
