Plant Identification Please

Posted: 04/08/2017 at 22:03

Some of the other plants I saw today I had an idea what they were so I did google the names of those ones to confirm if I was right.


These two had me stumped which is why I turned to the forum for help.


I didn't know about the facility in google images to upload one of my images and search for similar.


Thanks for the help.

Hello


Can anyone identify these two plants that I saw today when I was out visiting a National Trust property. I have no idea what they are called.




Thanks

Something is digging out the soil in my plant pot

Thanks for all the replies. At least I know I am not alone with this problem.


I have moved the plant pot so that it is amongst some other pots rather then on the edge of the patio by the lawn.

Something is digging out the soil in my plant pot

Posted: 30/07/2017 at 17:47

Recently I repotted an ailing patio rose with fresh compost in different pot with some carnation cuttings and a sedum cutting.


Overnight a few weeks ago something had disturbed the soil so I tidied it up and put some large pebbles on the soil to deter whatever was doing it. This is what I have done before which other pots and nothing had happen since.


But this morning I find that a big hole has been dug in the pot and the soil and pebbles are over the lawn. The rose had some broken branches which is a shame as I had only noticed yesterday that it was being to shoot again. Sod's law I suppose.  


I have tidied the pot and this time put a layer of shingle on top.


We do have foxes in the area which are regularly in the street at night as there is an allotment at the end of the road. Or was it a cat as I have had what I assume are neighbours' cats in the garden before.



Does this happen to anybody on this forum?


Any advice appreciated to tackle this problem.


Thanks

Hello Stephen


I couldn't make my mind up which one to go for so it's been put on the back burner. Sorry

Hello Pete8


The Geum were little plants off a larger plant. I had them in pots and the leaves were like this so I planted them out in the flower bed that I have been revamping hoping that they would do better.


Now I worried that I have made a wrong move in case the other plant that are near them get affected.
