..just bringing up this old thread as I have another  moth to identify...nutcutlet and others were good enough to put me in the picture previously....  this is probably another Silver Y but might it be something else instead....please...?  thank you...

Cornus Kousa

...your Cornus kousa should flower well next year...I've bought then in flower before and they miss out the following year as they're making a lot of growth...

alternatively...have you pruned it at all this winter? if you have, you might have cut off the flower buds..

..I thought you would like it....do hope it's that...we shall have to wait and see...

...Orlaya was used in the best in show garden this year for Laurent Perrier...it's also popular at Great Dixter gardens apparently... and as a companion for roses.... it'll be a bit of a shame now if it proves to be something else...lol....

I cant kill them either, hate em with a passion as they are destroying my garden but......they do have a right to be here like any other animal insect etc so I don't feel I have a right to kill them but to just perhaps forcibly remove them from said garden.

...I agree with that....exactly...mine go over the fence [no neighbours]...if they come back...just have to do it again...lol...

How Safe is Your Garden?

Posted: 27/05/2014 at 18:41

...I never wear gloves and I've planted Aconitums, Foxgloves and the rest...over the years...gloves just get in the way...a neighbour recently saw me gardening and said ''why aren't you wearing gloves?''...[rolls eyes]... however, I do agree that perhaps, we should...lol...

New to gardening. Need some advice

Posted: 27/05/2014 at 18:37

..oh that looks nice..when I click on it, it turns the right way up..

..this could be really good...what I would do would be to bury the rocks..those in the middle and any more you get..about half or even three quarters deep...like an iceberg..where most is below the surface...and not to leave the rocks just scattered on the top...

..for planting..I might move that aggressive looking Geranium at the corner there, to somewhere else in the garden... I notice a small stump...but that's ok you can make use of that, something to grow over it...things like dwarf hebe's, succulents..and little alpines for the front to cascade over the front stones would be nice...might put some grit or gravel in that bed for drainage...something along those lines...so much to choose from really..  have fun...

...whoops...I seem to be repeating fidgetbones there a little...lol...just saw that...

rose id

..I wouldn't have a guess at that one because it looks like a hybrid tea and there are just millions of those... also I cannot enlarge the image and would need to see a lot more to even imagine what it might be... to my eye it looks more orange than red...would that not be right..?

Tallest Digitalis

.fantastic... I wonder if it's the shade of the willow that's drawing it up..? it looks like the Excelsior strain doesn't it? ...whatever... I also like that little corner with lots of little things going on...nice Aquilegia's too..
