Yes, I agree, I have never seen one in flower, how pretty!

Any idea what this is?

Prendula I mean - and not poisonous for dogs, as it is just an ornamental grass!

Any idea what this is?

Definitely carex prendula - it should come with an invasive plant warning, as it will self seed vigorously!

Wow, that looks amazing! It could be some form of Salvia?

Just a word of warning to heuchera lovers - vine weevil grubs seem to be making an early appearance this year! I checked a few plants earlier this week, and they are already riddled with quite mature grubs, usually don't see this until about November! Eugh....

Sounds like it could be alkanet, or pentaglottis. They look very similar to the foxglove leaf, but have a very deep thick taproot and leaves and stems with very fine sharp hairs on them.

Please help Identify this shrub

It could be Olearia furfuracea, that has fluffy seed heads. Or Olearia monroi, that has the coconut scent as well, nut the leaves of that seem to be more serrated.

What is it

Wiegela flowers in mid spring, give it a feed and a mulch, they are usually pretty tough shrubs. Give it a bit of tlc, and hopefully next year it will start to put on a bit more growth!

Tree ID and transplanting advice please

The best time to move deciduous trees is in the winter, when they are in a state of dormancy. The chances of getting them out intact and them surviving is not great, unfortunately! At this time of year, a lot of the garden centres are reducing their stock, many to half price, I live near a Hilliers branch and many are reduced. It might be worth your while having a look at local garden centres, to see what they have on offer!
