Hello all! I have some coping stones to go on top of my pond, but the problem is two need cutting. Does anyone know if there is a stone cutting service in Birmingham?

Its not Arum. It doesn't have berries as far as I remember.

Liriodendron I don't know if its a wild plant. It comes in different colours. It was featured on gardeners world or Chelsea flower show a few months back too.

Arg.. wish I remembered more.

No thats not the one. Its a plant you're unlikely to see at a garden centre.

Unfortunatly I don't have a picture. All I can say is it resembles a pitcher plant in a way.

 

Is white spot treatment (for pond fish) poisonous to cats?

Just a quick query as they love to drink from our pond

What have you learnt this year in the garden?

Posted: 17/06/2014 at 00:15

Learnt some plants shoot late spring whilst others in spring. I dug up a plant and left the it (with a good chunk of soil attached) by the fence. Why? I'm not sure.

Carnivorous plants

Watching the latest gardeners world I was delighted to see Monty aquired his first carnivorous plants. They're just superb at catching pests in the greenhouse. Sundews catch those pesky gants with ease, soon filling up its sticky leaves. Pitchers are the champions at catching flies, and known to catch wasps. Butterworts catch gnats and whitefly upon their buttery feel leaves equally as sticky as sundews. Whilst not known for it (I believe so anyway) my venus flytrap caught a slug. The unfortunate slug had half in, half out lets say.

If you plan on getting a Sundew, this particular one (or rather lets say shape) has caught the most gnats in my greenhouse http://www.hantsflytrap.com/ds005-dcapensis-alba-18-p.asp

It was really nice to see these plants get coverage, if only mentioned briefly on Garderners world, and I hope they get more in the future
