What are these two plants

Posted: 19/05/2012 at 16:37

The first one I thought was a honeysuckle but after a trip to the garden centre I am not 100% sure,

The second one I think is some kind of wild allium but it doesn't smell of gralic when you touch it. The stem is round and not triangular (I pass on my way to work something similar to this but it is white with a triangular stem.)

Rough Marigold?

It's about to flower soon so the mystery will be solved them.

Clematis Montana killed during winter

Posted: 19/05/2012 at 11:13

I have two Montana Prevail and I though the first one died two winters ago but it came back in the autumn. The following winter both looked like they had died since it was even worse. Cut them back and they came back with a vengance. No flower last year but this loads of them. I would not give up hope yet. The weaker one of mine took almost nine months to recover.

Rough Marigold?

Is this a Marigold that has managed to seed itself into my pot of Coriander Calypso? No idea how it has done this as it has been grown indoors. It has now been exiled outside after a week of hardining off.


Wormery question

Mine are quite slow too at the moment. Any tips to improve the compost mine never really seems to be 100% finished and is usually quite wet. I tend only to add kitchen towel to it since adding newspapers and cardboard don't break down quickly enough.

Sadly my garden is too small to harbour a compost bin. That's why I got the wormery in the first place.

Wormery question

Posted: 17/05/2012 at 23:47

I have had a Stokes wormery for two-three years now and it is mostly working fine. No massive worm death yet but at the moment it is getting a bit out of sync. The bottom and middle trays are not ready and the top one was full but now have decayed to about 1-2 inches.So my question is I can add anything more to the top tray as it is now less than 1/3 full or wouldl that just make the top one too compact when I finally switch trays. I am currently sending the scrapps off via Bristol Councils brown bin scheme.

Broadcasting poppy seeds into the border

I think you are right. Will scatter some more now when the sun is out.

Broadcasting poppy seeds into the border

Posted: 16/05/2012 at 13:34
I did this a couple of weeks ago but I think only one or two have germinated. Not sure if it was due to the bad weather or the seeds, which came from a seed swap and collected seeds from last year.

Can anyone help identify this plant

Posted: 11/05/2012 at 22:52

I think or rather google think it is a Cimifuga or bugbane.
