Hi Elaine,
Thanks for your reply.
The only reference to petasites on this site is for Petasites japonicus (Sweet coltsfoot).
The description for this is not as for my foundling.
If you click on the photo in my post you will see better the shape of the plant which is only 4 inches tall and about 2 & half inches diameter.
Maybe I am not looking in the right place. Can you help in this.
Best regards, Brian

Eleagnus for sure, common name Russian olive, most of them now are variegated, ebbengei, E. pungens maculata, this one does not look yellow or even the variety called quick silver. It flowers in Oct. with a small sweetly fragrant flower followed by a fruit.

This may be japanese honeysuckle - lonicera japonica - has sweet smelling flowers and tiny black berries - which birds love.

Some leaves may remain through winter.

Identification help

Question from Viv Moir

In forum: Identify a plant

This small ground cover plan, perhaps an alpine, is flowering now. The leaves are small, narrow and slightly waxy, dark green. The tiny little flowers remind me of mini sweet peas. There are two main purpley/pink petals with a bright yellow centre. It is growing in a garden trough at the moment. I would like to propogate this plant and use it as a ground cover plant. I would appreciate some advice.

Hi Everyone! I just wanted to pop up this little post as it may be of interest to some of you.... Silver River Productions are producing a new primetime Gardening Programme for BBC2.

The programme will be an exciting and stimulating series which will reveal all the wonderful possibilities that can be unlocked from one patch of earth. From vegetables to fruits and flowers, this programme will illustrate that gardens aren’t just for sitting in!

We are looking for pairs of contestants (The pairs can be anyone you choose: friends, neighbours, family, colleagues and more) who have the skills and the dedication to compete to be the nation's best kitchen gardener. Someone who can cultivate the perfect carrot, make their green tomatoes into award winning chutney and turn their dahlias and sweet peas into floral arrangements fit for a Queen.

We would like to hear from people who believe they have the skills to compete and are interested in featuring in our series.
It couldn’t be easier to apply, all you need to do is email grow@silverriver.tv for an application form or view the attached flyer.

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate in contacting me 0207 307 2741.

Re: Rose similar to ..............

Message from John Paisley

In forum: Rosa Sweet Dream

Hi Edward,
'Sweet Memories' is a sport from 'Sweet Dream' so exactly the same plant genetically except for the colour. If it is a similar colour you're after how about 'Flower Power' or 'Fond Memories'

Please can you identify this rose?

Question from Sophia Silverman

In forum: Identify a plant

I have inherited this rose in my new garden. It stands about 1.6 m high unsupported although I have now put a support in place for it. It has been in flower since spring and is still flowering now in November. The flowers are about 5 cms accross, pink with a splash of yellow in the centre and have a lovely sweet scent. The leaves are quite small and light in colour, I'd love to know it's name if anyone can help identify it. Thank you

Can anyone identify this plant?

Photo from Jenny Hicken

In forum: Identify a plant

Found beside a field of sweet corn. Beautifully scented and full of bees. About 18" and possibly annuals. Soft feathery foliage.- the flowers look hazy because of the long stamens. Has anyone grown it in a garden or might it get rampant?

Acidic tomatoes

Question from Glensgirl

In forum: Edible gardening

hello everyone, can any of you advise as to what might be making my toms taste a bit acidic rather sweet? I have two types, both cherries - one free with Gardener's World and one from seeds from a beautifully sweet Tesco tomato - so I know they are both from decent stock. Is it lack of sun or lack of food?? Thanks! PS, all growing well, to expected size and ripening well - just not particularly sweet.
