Shrub leaves go brown

Posted: 12/04/2014 at 20:14

..this looks like Prunus laurocerasus 'Otto Luyken'... a dwarf laurel...  I would remove those brown leaves, feed and mulch... spraying with a fungicide might be helpful... it may have a fungal disease going on there..

..oh dear, I'm almost afraid to tell you.... I'll let someone else offer advice as to the best way forward.... it's a horror...

..this is negative..

last year I ordered 3 plants from same supplier... all very small and post and packing was quite expensive for what they were.. also one was not the plant advertised.. similar but a different variety....   I won't be bothering again...

What's this plant?

..I agree with steephill about it being a Russian Vine, although it would have flowered though... on top of that roof I expect... ..possibly an Ash tree too grown up alongside...?....  those green things just look like weeds to me...

trying to identify this shrub, have tried with two pictures, hope it helps

..the shape of the bush suggests a Deutzia to me..... I don't think it's a Philadelphus or Kolkwitzia... this last one tends to have peeling bark....   maybe Deutzia scabra...

..but it's hard to tell at this stage...

..I'm so terribly sorry to hear that... one can only hope they've caught it early... obviously I wish you the very best...

New garden help identifying plants please!

no.1 is a Pyracantha, surely...

agapanthus nurseries

Posted: 08/04/2014 at 15:41 might find something of interest here, they have a huge range and in some cases up to 10 ltr pots... many in 3 ltrs....not cheap but you get what you pay for... I have found this company to be excellent, well packaged and superb plants... delivery usually within a day or so of the estimate.... they email when despatched...

Wall covering, or trailing plant for tall wall

...I will suggest 2 plants, either singly or together if you have room... Clematis armandii... evergreen and fairly rampant if happy.... it will grow up and over, down the other side... along with Rose 'Francis E Lester'.... this rambler will do the same, has strong scent, flowers only at midsummer but armed with some vicious thorns that no one would want to mess with....

Yellow is the colour.......

..when is a plant not a weed...? when it's Ranunculus 'Brazen Hussy' I suppose.... can't bring myself to dig any of these up.... they'll be all over the neighbourhood
