Can you recognise this plant

Hi Hosta fan1

I understand  your view 

but I subscribe to the Magazine

and I view their t v  programs,

 I also think if they provide a web site full of advertising, which they get paid for!

I think one should expect the site to work properly at all times๐Ÿ˜…

Hi Raisingirl

oh thanks I'm so pleased it's not me that's doing something wrong.

This site drives me mad at times I wonder why I bother.

i will have another go on Monday as you say when the staff get back in.

(sounds like something from the 70s doesn't it )โ˜น๏ธ

Is it Ok to keep picking rhubarb

Posted: 08/06/2017 at 12:30

Hi Obelixx, I have a one year old rhubarb plant which has grown big leaves on thick stems, but I read that you shouldn't pick one year old rhubarb? So I'm a bit confused.

Do I just leave them to rot down or should I pick them to eat ? 

Wilting wisteria

Posted: 03/05/2017 at 08:49

Hi Busy Lizzy,

My whisteria has flowered every year, unfortunately this year it was caught by a very cold frost.

I was so surprised as this has never happened before.

i don't think I can stand to look at shrivelled flowers and leaves for much longer.

there are new flowers growing further down but the shrivelled top looks very sad.

Do you know just how much I should prune off off each stem or do I just go back to a bud.

Im not expecting the damaged stems to re flower but I do need to tidy it .

any advice is welcome

What type of Hydranger is this

Posted: 26/03/2017 at 16:47

Hi, my grandaughter has grown this hydranger from a root and doesn't know what type it is. I know it's a bit of a long shot but does anyone recognise it perhaps by the leaves. If not I think she will have to wait until it flowers and go from there.

Do you know this rose ?

Hi Butercupdays, thanks for your reply, everything you say makes perfect sense. I will keep it indoors till weather gets a bit warmer, then plant it out.

many thanks.

Does anyone recognise this tree

This small tree was outside our building whilst on holiday in the south west of England, I could not find anyone who could tell me the name of it, so if anyone recognises it I would appreciate its name, thanks, sorry the photoes are sideways, no idea why
