jasmine

I always cut my jasmine back very hard.  Last week I did mine.  Looks dead, no leaves left but it will be just fine and flower late summer.  A hard cut back promotes a bushy plant

Anthony,

When you plant out your fire and ice make sure it's out of the sun, ESP during the summer.  Those leaves will simply curl up and suffer. Fire and Ice simply cannot tolerate direct sun.  

I have Fire Island shooting now...new plant....and the leaves are an amazing yellow

Welcome to the forum Danae.  A picture will solve the mystery of your plant.  Could be so many things ?...possibly even a hellebore so it's all guesswork for now

Morning folks

Cloudy, misty again. Possibility of some sun

Peach trees flowering.....must remember to cover them soon re leaf curl. Tall blue irises looking nice near various daffs.  

Nice touches of pink, blue and yellow.......er, no they're the clothes pegs!  

Can anyone identify this shrub/plant thankyou :)

We  grow them outside here everywhere.  But not in my garden or in any garden if I had my way.  They are vicious and dangerous plants.  Not the easiest to eradicate either once they get large.  

Photinia Red Robin Leaf Query

Alison, I would avoid those plants.  Photinias are susceptible to many diseases.  You should always buy only clean and healthy stock of any plant.

Djjjuk

Well done.  What a battle.  What a hero.  I can see the wounded but your general hand fork and marshal gloves look tired.  Please pass on my respect to them for they have clearly given their all.  Hopefully, they will be ready for the next battle and do you proud again. 

I am sure too that you, yourself, will be mentioned on high Djjjuk.
