Plant / weed ID please

Arh funny you should say campanula, I think I remember throwing some seeds out the back as I have them in the front.  Must have worked after all.

Glad I asked.  Thank you. haha, I've taken up plants so often.  Should learn unless it is ground elder, leave alone until I've asked on here.

I'm sure this is a weed, I've got a few of them cropping up.  Dont want to remove them and then find out it was something I had actually planted (it does happen... )

 Thank you.

Short flowering season for my buddleja's

Posted: 25/08/2015 at 21:59

My buddleja's only flowered for the first two weeks of August (whilst we were on holiday) and well maybe the week before, so I dead headed before and after we came back.

I've had no new flowers on either plant since I got back (one of them was too new so I didn't deadhead that one)

Does anyone know the reason why this may be.  I've looked up on line and the variety I have should flower until September. 

It also appears another local gardener has had the same problem.  Any advice gratefully received.  Thank you

Magpies on the increase?

Posted: 24/08/2015 at 21:39

I've seen more magpies and jays in the garden this year than I have since we moved in 3 years ago.  I'm noticing a lot less little birds too, what with the pigeons I can't think of what else to do other than stop feeding all the birds.  hmm what to do

Unhealthy rosemary

Oh I wasn't watering them, I was being lazy and trying to fill up the bird's water so spraying over the top of them...

Unhealthy rosemary

One of my rosemary's started going black earlier on in the summer, i thought maybe it had been scorched when watering, but now not so sure.

Any ideas what may be wrong with it ?  Will I be better off just taking it out ?

 Thanks for any advice.

Agapanthus ID

Posted: 20/08/2015 at 21:16

We have recently returned from a holiday in Cornwall where I saw these beauties ! The flowers were absolutely huge (about the size of my head), is anyone able to tell me which variety they are as I'd love to try and grow them in Surrey, in my hot sandy bed.

 Also, from St Michaels Mount I bought some apaganthus that were labelled as Agapanthus 'Big Blue' which i assume is the variety, however can't find any details on that variety.  Any ideas.

Thanks for any advice.

I've just seen a gardener died last year from touching it without gloves.  My friend has children, should I recommend for her to get rid of it.  Not sure I'd want it and it isn't at the back of a border it is just at the end of the lawn.

Plant ID please

I wondered if you could help ID this plant, someone has said it is Aconitum and is poisonous.

Is anyone able to confirm if this is the case or if not what it might be.

 Thank you
