What is this strange plant growing on a gorse?!

It's ok, my dad was head chef in a hotel between Lynton and Lynmouth when I was a child, so I know the area really well! Used to love walking around the Valley of the Rocks.

Also check the pot for an ants nest, they can quite often be the cause of pot plant problems.

It was near Lynton that I saw it too, Liriodendron! I don't remember it being in flower at the time, but it was a most peculiar sight.

Day Lilies leaves turning yellow, too soon?

Yes, mine are turning too. Autumn seems to be arriving early this year - the horse chestnuts in our village started turning in July!!

It's a parasitic plant that feeds off its host in a similar way to mistletoe. Looks like some alien creature!

Please help identifying this plant

I think it is Chinese lanterns, that flower will develop an orange papery seed head which hangs down like a lantern. Very pretty!

Would love to see a pic of it with berries on - love the glossy green colour!

Tools keep breaking

For trowels, I must say the most durable I have come cross is the narrow Wolf Garten trowel.

I have yet to break one, and I've been gardening for 15 years, and mine get a lot of use and abuse. I lost one once having accidently chucked it in a pile of weeds in the compost heap. I found it again two years later when I unearthed the compost to use it, and it was still perfectly useable!
