Rogue Plants - Could you Help with their IDs Please?

Posted: 21/03/2015 at 15:24

The tulips are in wrong place ideally right next to Clematis so bit cramped. The aquilegia looks nice plant, can it be moved as again not in ideal place or shall I leave.

The bluebell is going to be right in the middle of a Cottage Garden Scheme, any ideas on what to do with it, its all by itself lol.

With the Pulmonaria can I dig that up after flowing and move it to another border or when is best time to move it? Quite like the look of it. Thanks for the tip on the Goose Grass, had no idea but remember pulling a load of up last year.

I have 3 plants growing in the garden at the moment and have no idea what they are. They have been left over from the previous owners of the house and was wondering if they are worth keeping or moving.

Any suggestions on which soil tester to go for?

Gonna order the plants today, will test my soil PH though first.

Only problem is by asking Woottens about each plant probably not practical as I am ordering around £200 worth of plants so quite a lot of them.

Thanks Verdun, not sure whats locally but I know there is a Council run gardening place that I think sells compost etc, will investigate that.

Don't know on the mushroom farms, will check that too.

Sorry for the dumb question but how do I know what soil I have?

Many thanks for the tips.

I am also going to need to Mulch, is it best to order online or find local supplier?

I have tried plug plants before and not had much success with them, still learning really. I think I'm better off getting some more established bigger plants. I've decided to get some from Jacksons and Woottens.

Now the next question is should I be buying them this early on in the year or maybe wait a month or so?

I'm just concerned I buy it load of these plants and plant them in back garden and frost may damage them. Any advice greatly appreciated.

Hey everyone

I am planning a cottage garden style theme for part of my garden and was thinking of getting some plants mail order, any suggestions on a decent place to order them?

I have seen Jacksons, Plantify, Crocus and Parkers?
