My Daphne 'Eternal Fragrance' was a total disappointment, produced only a few flowers and then died.

Plant pots

A compromise is to place plastic pots into larger, more attractive clay or terracotta pots.

Plant ID help needed

Yes, Ribes Sanguineum - great for bees.

What on earth is this weed??

Looks like Celandine to me, it grows abundantly in woodland in this area and I've just seen one in the garden.  I rather like it, but it is a rampant spreader and not easy to eradicate once it takes hold.

They probably need more light.

Shrub Id please

I agree with Ceres, looks like a Magnolia to me?

Plant ID Please!

Yes, looks like the phlox in my border.

Anyone done any gardening today?

Thank you, Bob, this site looks really good.

Buddleia Buzz cuttings

I got my 3 free buzz plugs in 2013 and they are growing really well, particularly the ivory, which reached about 4'.  I've found that they do particularly well in a sunny spot in a border, with lots of good organic compost.

Dry here most of the day, but quite grey.  Potted up my 6 free GW tomato plants (from T&M), which arrived yesterday and put with 6 others in the GH.  Has anyone else received their 3 free climbing Fuchsia 'Pink Fizz'?  Mine arrived earlier this week and having potted them on, they appear to be growing well and are looking healthy (so far, so good).  Hostas have started to appear, so have mulched with 'Slug Gone' and keeping my fingers crossed that it works. I have decided to buy another Malus to plant in the back of a border, maybe two.  Am looking for one with pink blossom, red fruits, Autumn colour, good for jelly and not a weeping variety - bushy!  Your recommendations would be much appreciated.
